At Hutchinson Environmental Solutions we regularly deal with a wide range of manufacturers and suppliers and can source most finished products – cesspools/cesspits, septic tanks, package pump stations, package sewage treatment plants, oil/water interceptors, wash-down separators, rainwater harvesters, grease traps and grease management systems, to name the more common ones - and spare parts – motors, blowers, pumps, air filters, diaphragms, etc. - at least as competitively as internet resellers. If you know exactly what you want, just call.
One of the big advantages of the internet for consumers is, once you know what you want, price comparison. But we are told again and again by potential customers that, while prices are posted quite clearly, they really aren’t sure what they’re going to get if they press the “Buy now” button. If you’re not sure what you need – and there are a host of “me too” e-commerce websites out there offering “price, not advice” - and are wondering which package sewage treatment plant or pump station or septic tank will offer you best value for money as part of your off-mains wastewater treatment scheme, and why one costs twice as much as another that does “just the same thing”, it will pay you to bear the following in mind:
If, after asking these questions, the cost of the plant still outweighs the value of any reassurance you’re looking for, then buy it, and call us to commission and maintain it.
Are you any better off dealing directly with a manufacturer? Manufacturers will certainly tell you about their own products but they’re hardly likely to tell you that their competitor’s product is better, are they? As with approaching only Barclays for a mortgage, you are limiting your options to that one manufacturer’s product offer. You could, of course, approach a range of manufacturers yourself but that would require some knowledge of the different sewage treatment processes they employ, or of the reputations of various pump manufacturers, or of the different qualities of GRP or MDPE or HDPE used for the tanks, or of the real-world value of tempting extended warranty offers, in order for you to be able to evaluate claims made in the promotional literature.
With over 40 years’ experience not only of the supply of off-mains sewage treatment and pumping products but also of system design, installation and, critically, day-to-day running and maintenance, we at Hutchinson Environmental Solutions have built up a unique body of experience of different manufacturers’ products and the types of application and sites to which each is best suited, experience from which you benefit when you buy from us.
Good value doesn’t have to cost the earth.
