At the Car Wash………….
After twelve years of regular hand pump replacement, wasted materials, and messy clean-ups, Matt de Lange, General Manager of the Wash Works Car Wash in Baltimore, Maryland had had it with pumps breaking down.
“We tried every pump on the market that could move the product. Most would break down in no time at all,” noted Mr. de Lange. “It was frustrating to me and my employees. Every two to three months I’d have to purchase a new pump. I can’t tell you how many we went through. Then I found a pressurized action pump that worked and has never broken down.”
Mr. de Lange has been using the same durable pressurized action pumps for three years to transfer vinegar for window washing and petroleum solvent for general cleaning. At first, he was shocked at the price of the pumps – at over $140.00 each, they were more expensive than any other he’d previously purchased. But when he saw how well they performed and how durable they were, he realized they were well worth the money. “After we had our pumps for one year, I purchased more for spares,” said Mr. de Lange. “I haven’t had to use these spares yet.”
Utilizing them on a daily basis, Mr. de Lange soon came to appreciate the reliability of these pumps. Each one will drain a drum dry, so inventory loss is no longer a problem. The pumps are leak proof, which makes transferring products safer. Plus, they eliminate spills and the need for clean up, a major problem with earlier pump purchases. Wash Works line employees like the pumps, too.
The pumps operate easily and deliver products instantaneously. There’s no time wasted and no mess to deal with.
The pumps fit any container from 2-gallon jugs to 55-gallon drums and can pump virtually any liquid. So far, the only maintenance Mr. de Lange has needed was to replace the “O” ring, which wore out. “Now that’s what I call a great pump,” he said.
