Today I visited 2 of our newest customers. The first being a concrete pumping company in Denver, Southwest Concrete Pumping. They run 50 pumper trucks in the area. Talk about a maintenance operation.... WOW. Those trucks have hundreds of parts that wear-out on a regular basis from pumping all that abrasive concrete. They were very pleased to hear about our valves that will make their job easier. Those trucks have several sizes of ball valves on them from 1/2 inch to 2 inch for the purpose of washing out all the piping that carries the concrete. Some of those valves are located in hard to reach areas that take a couple of hrs to remove and replace. Now it's a 5 min. job.
Second place was United Rentals in Littleton. Bryon, the shop manager in charge of maintenance, was also delighted to discover our freeze tolerant ball valves. They have water trucks and water trailers that they rent out, each with several ball valves on them. Some are at the end of the pipe, easy to change out, while a couple are in tight places that took 2 1/2 hrs to change out one 2 inch valve last week. Plus they have to cut out some high pressure hoses in order to replace a ball valve and then buy new hoses.
He will definitely enjoy turning a 2 1/2 hr repair job into a 5 minute repair job!
