Since PurClean became a company over 30 years ago, one of our biggest focuses has been customer support. Creating a number one product is great, but support makes it possible to maintain customer relationships and ensure each partnership is beneficial to both sides.
2020 has been a whirlwind year for the carwash industry and has been a pivotal year for PurClean so far allowing changes to be made to further instill the belief that customer support is key to success. At the beginning of the year, our sales team was in need of a reboot. Management within the company decided to look internally for employees that could assist with fostering customer relationships by providing knowledgeable support and technical experience. Paul Spence and Steve Samudio, both of whom have decades of combined experience in water treatment for the carwash industry have fulfilled this role since January of 2020. We are excited to announce their new positions as Technical Sales Managers and the creation of our new Technical Sales Team.
This post will cover maintenance tasks on the AquaLink II (or AOS II) unit. This information can also be found in the technical manual for this equipment. If you have any questions while performing maintenance tasks, please contact our technical support department at 800.882.8854.
One of our goals at PurClean is to partner with our customers by providing up-to-date information on water treatment and our systems. One way we’ve done this is by providing a distributor resource library that includes downloadable files such as technical manuals, spec sheets, sell sheets, parts catalogs and more. To access, visit our website at www.purclean.com and scroll to the bottom of our home page. One the right side of the page you’ll find a button that says “Distributor Login” - click this button to begin the registration process. You’ll be taken to a sign in page with a bottom at the bottom that says “Not a member? Register”. Fill out this form and wait to receive a confirmation email. From here you can confirm your email and then login to the resource center.
When deciding whether to refurbish or replace your PurClean and PurWater equipment, it’s important to review all factors to ensure the most economical and efficient option is made for the long term. Replacement can often seem more expensive than refurbishment, while refurbishment may appear to have more down time and labor. Figuring out which way to go can be tricky, so we wanted to put together a blog post to help you decide which option might be best for your specific situation. Keep reading to learn what factors should be considered when weighing refurbishment versus replacement of your unit.
