An investment in drinking water and wastewater systems is undertaken to protect public health and the environment. The decision to move ahead on a capital project is one that should not be taken lightly. Whether you are designing a new facility or upgrading an older site, any capital investment, should include the implementation of measures to protect that capital investment. The most effective way to protect an equipment purchase is to follow manufacturer-recommended maintenance and service procedures and schedules.  Download our Checklist using the form on this page to keep your equipment in tip top shape.

An equipment purchase is effectively the start of a long relationship between the purchasing company and manufacturer, going well beyond the installation, start-up and commissioning of a system. As a result, it’s important to focus on the service and maintenance a manufacturer offers throughout the life of the equipment. A simple review of the service offerings will help ensure a partnership with a manufacturer that understands what is required to effectively support their system.

Water and wastewater system operators play an important role in ensuring reliable water and wastewater equipment performance. Proper operation and maintenance of water and wastewater treatment equipment depends largely on the operators and the training they’ve received to support the equipment. Equipment-specific training from a manufacturer at start-up and routinely throughout the life of the equipment is important, especially given the high turnover rate of trained and experienced operators at water and wastewater treatment facilities.

From an operation and maintenance perspective, some of the common deficiencies affecting the ability to follow manufacturer-recommended procedures and schedules include:

Don’t Risk Violating Your IMO Certification. Use Real OEM Parts to Keep Your OMNIPURE™ Electrolytic Wastewater Treatment System in Tip Top Shape.

Your electrolytic system is designed to be rugged and dependable, so make sure you protect your investment with OEM parts. Counterfeit and non-OEM components will not only nullify your warranty but will cause you to lose your IMO certification—adding a safety risk that no one in this industry can afford to take.

Don’t be deceived by look-a-likes. Many items offered in today’s marketplace ‘appear’ to be exact copies of certified OEM parts, so much so that an unsuspecting purchasing agent may not question their authenticity. Furthermore, many of these knockoffs are advertised as ‘same as original’ or ‘meets OEM standards’. However, the use of counterfeit parts could lead to operational equipment changes, premature breakdowns, and non-compliant effluent discharge values. The use of non-OEM parts can also result in potential fines and poor environmental-impact reviews if the equipment is outside the type certified or approved design. These are some of the potential consequences that mindful customers should not risk.
