What do our customers say about us?

'….On our farm we had a major problem with manganese in our water. The water lines would clog up with the black particles and we were forever stripping down equipment to clear the blockages. Chris Temple was recommended to us to solve our water problem. He did a thorough check of our farm water supply and provided a report on options to clean up the problem. The reported options had all the information; capital costs, running costs and how to operate the system. After discussion with Chris we went ahead with a system we were comfortable with and suited our situation. We have never had to clean piping equipment again the problem was fixed. The capital and operating costs are all within budget. Thanks Chris….' Eunice Redmayne, Matamata.
