No water means no concrete cutting!
John Ford Concreting were frustrated with not being able to get a constant pressure water supply for their concrete cutting services when they landed on site. Makinex introduced them to their constant pressure portable water supply unit, the Hose2Go which solved this frustration.
Water was difficult to access when on site
John and his team sometimes found that when they arrived on site, they didn’t have access to a reliable water supply for their concrete cutting tools. Without water, they couldn’t get on with the job of cutting concrete and this meant they wasted a lot of time trying to find a solution.
How can I get a portable water supply?
They decided they needed to find a portable constant pressure water supply unit that provided them with water where and when they need it.
While researching their options they came across the Makinex Hose2Go, a portable water supply unit that provides up to 30 minutes of constant pressure water supply for concrete cutting and coring tools.
John says, “… in addition to ensuring my team are never without water for their tools, the Hose2Go has reduced sludge entering the environment due to the user’s ability to control the water pressure from the Hose2Go. “
John also mentioned the Hose2Go is great for its ability to mitigate silica dust which ensures I have another way of looking after the wellbeing of my team.”
