BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED?
From my grandfather: “If you are going to work in an industry, stick to water. The world can’t live without it.”
WHAT ARE THE TOP ITEMS PUMP INSTALLERS SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A PUMP HOIST?
Safety because it’s a dangerous job and the safer our hoists, the safer people can be in the field. Speed and efficiency are second so they can accomplish more work in a day. A hoist that works for their applications is third because there are several types of pumps and well setups.
AS A FORMER PUMP INSTALLER, HOW DOES THE INDUSTRY RECRUIT THE NEXT GENERATION OF WORKERS?
Mike Rowe has done a wonderful job of promoting how important blue-collar jobs are and our industry fits into this category to a T. Anything you can do to make their job safer and easier makes it more appealing for guys to want to work in this industry day in and day out.
MOST SATISFYING PART OF YOUR JOB?
Design and build new or better equipment that helps contractors do their jobs more safely and efficiently. I love to hear from customers who like that I used to be in their shoes when I was a driller and pump installer and incorporated actual experience into designing the pump hoists that we build now.
HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR AQUA FLOWS RIG TENDER EASING WORKLOAD DEMANDS ON A JOBSITE?
All the storage is in the rear, allowing the driller and team to have easy access to their tools. Second, we have 155 cubic feet of available tool storage. Third, our tank design allows for more water storage at a lower deck height. Lower deck height makes the job physically easier.
WHAT ARE YOU EYEING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IN 2023?
Well, I can’t give all our secrets away, but we are going to be learning a lot more in 2023 to bring the industry a new piece of equipment that is unlike anything in the market today.
