Weâre all different and we like to work in different ways. Some simply take life as it comes, getting through their work, their way. Others have everything planned to the last minute. Weâve got a mate like this â brilliant at his job and great with the customers, but always watching the clock, because he knows that time is money. We were having a chinwag about the job and he had two bugbears â systems that need preheating and the bulky boxes of chemicals he carts about in his van. âBecause the chemicals need warm water,â he said, âIâm sitting around when I could be doing another job.â
Although heâs good at scheduling, our pal confessed that his van was a bit of a mess. âBoxes everywhere, thereâs stuff in there that Iâve forgotten I own,â he said. âAnd stuff I cart around because Iâve got nowhere else for it to go.â He laughed: âThe missus isnât keen on having all the spare kit in the house.â
Joking aside, heâd got a good point, and it got us thinking again about his power flushing chemicals problem. With one for each type of system treatment, he was carrying four cases in the van. No wonder he was struggling.
Our pal hadnât heard about the alternative to bottled chemicals. Weâll forgive him because they are brand new in the UK although theyâre widely used on the continent. LONG LIFE chemical packs are neat, handy and wonât leak in the box. And thereâs another huge bonus from using the packs: the chemicals react with cold water so you can simply dilute them and get on with the job. Because thereâs no need to pre-heat the system, you can speed through the task.
Instead of carrying four boxes of chemicals, you could simply pop a few assorted packs in the van. The range is complete including sludge remover, inhibitor and system-restorer formulations.
Compared to bottles, these packs are brilliant. They save space, avoid spills and leaks and are lightweight so theyâre easy to carry about. Whatâs more, the chemicals inside are every bit as effective. Mix them with cold water and youâre ready to go.
Weâve told our mate about this new idea. Heâs giving the packs a go, and right now, heâs giving them a big thumbs-up.
