When you purchase a WBS solar pump you are paying for aproduct that has undergone extensive research and development, testing andfield trialing in Australia. These products are designed and tested to meetAustralian Standards and design rules and are supplied with installation andoperating instructions in English. Warranty that exceeds Australian ConsumerLaws and above all the products are safe to install and operate.
When you purchase a cheap knock-off product you are getting acopy of a engineered and designed product, very often made from differentmaterials, that has not undergone a research and development program to meetAustralian conditions. It won't have local product support, spare parts orwarranty. It may not meet Australian Standards or design rules. It may not haveinstallation or operating instructions in English. When the pump and installedequipment fails causing damage to the water bore or other infrastructure themoney saved is insignificant.
I take many calls when unsuitable equipment, fittings,electrical cable or pump rising main has failed causing the pump and equipmentto become stuck in the bore. In many cases the pump and equipment is a totalloss and a replacement water bore needs to be drilled. Cheap knock-off pumps,electrical cables and equipment can be very expensive in the long run.
