Question: I have seen other tank systems advertised on the web for less money. I do not understand what is so different about Well Manager® or why they cost more.
Answer: Many of our other customers have the same question, but in response, we propose another question: Why do you think there are so many personal testimonials on our website when other vendors boast about past accomplishments with little to no customer testimonials?
Well Manager® customers are so excited about the change in their lives that our product has brought them, and they are happy to share with the world that their money was invested properly. Reading through our testimonials you will find that it isn’t just new customers that recommend Well Manager®, but the owners who have waited two, three or more years before putting their feelings on paper are still thoroughly satisfied with the system. You can read one testimonial from a customer who struggled with the decision to buy Well Manager® here.
When considering options for your low yield well, please be aware that atmospheric tank water storage systems are both tried and true. This type of system dates back to the Roman Empire and is still widely used across the globe today. Atmospheric tank water storage systems have a pretty poor reputation in the United States because of previous problems with contaminated water. A more detailed explanation can be found on this topic here.
If Well Manager® were just another tank system, then the United States and Canadian governments would not have issued patents for the technology. It cannot be found elsewhere for half the price. Well Manager® is protected by two patents in America and one in Canada because it is so effective that it can replace a tank system that has 8-10 times more storage, and because it can provide a more reliable water supply even while using a lower quality water source; in fact, many of our customers have switched from those other tank or cistern systems to our Well Manager® system for just that reason. Feel free to read what Ron Keissler of Weston Colorado had to say by following the link.
A Well Manager® costs more because you get more. Most of the time all our customers need is either a properly sized, installed, and set up Well Manager® system or our less expensive Herculan ConstaBoost™. If we feel that your well or piping needs repair or drilling before the installation of our system, we will notify you during an initial evaluation.
We will interpret your well records, review the symptoms and history you report, examine the equipment installed in your home (using customer-supplied digital pictures if you desire to provide them), and make a transparent recommendation at no additional charge. If you buy one of our systems, you will receive a 50-page manual with pictures explaining what each part is and what it does. The manual includes helpful illustrations, as well as start-up and troubleshooting information. The entire manual is written in easy-to-understand English.
Well Manager® controls are UL listed, so you will have no problems with the electrical inspection when you install our system in a new home (or on any other job that requires a permit). Other systems have controls that might lead you to believe that they, too, are UL listed; however, upon close inspection, it can be found that only a power cord or other small component is UL listed, which will not fool your electrical inspector.
We provide telephone assistance for technical questions, to set up the timing for your well, and to instruct you further on how to interpret the information your Well Manager® is providing about your well water levels and the aquifer to which it is connected. Our phone service allows you to detect changes due to drought or heavy rainfall and adjust to them. If there are problems with equipment, then help is as close as your phone or computer during and after the warranty period (even on weekends). The Well Manager® control panel is designed so that we can tell you what is wrong over the phone; in most cases, we will be able to remotely inform you on how to recover your water quickly.
When you buy a Well Manager® system you will get a system that is ready to run, with everything it needs to run having been previously installed (as opposed to a kit that requires you to build the system following their direction manual). There is no pump or float switch to buy or install. The Well Manager® Manual teaches you about your well, well pump, and the components of the Well Manager® System. It includes everything you will need to know for running our Well Manager® successfully with an aquifer that has failed to supply you using conventional systems thus far. You will learn that it is not the size of the tank, but how you operate the well that determines how much water is available for your family. In most cases, timing is set up at installation and requires no further adjustment (except for in very low yield situations). You may speak with us a few times per week for two or three weeks, so we can better help you with minor timing adjustments before we arrive at exactly the right settings for your well.
Though we speak a great deal about timing, you will soon find out that a Well Manager® system is much more than a simple well timer. It combines a number of measurable parameters like flow, pressure, and time in a way that puts you in control of a seemingly uncontrollable situation while protecting your pump in the event that your timing set up becomes inappropriate no matter what the reason. You can read more about How a Well Manager® Works here.
Well Manager® Controls are made to last forever. There is no printed circuit board that can fail and make the system inoperative until it is replaced. Our controls are hard-wired, relay logic, and have readily available digital components that plug in. Everything in the control can be replaced for easier repair. In most component failures there is a way to make the system function while you wait for parts; our technicians can help you with that and parts are always in stock for immediate shipment. If need be, replacement parts can be found in the marketplace locally or on the internet.
In short, a Well Manager® system is a patented, readily serviceable appliance with a UL listed control that sets in place, connects to the well and water pipes, and can automatically manage your well. It also protects your pumps so that you have the water you need when you need it. Thousands of people across North America and elsewhere are happy with their Well Manager® systems, and we can ensure that you will be too!
