Is Paying for a Big Name Brand Always a Good Idea?
October 19, 2017 – I admit that sometimes I pay more for name-brand than I should, particularly when something doesn’t cost that much.

ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS
In an industry that demands reliability and resiliency, why are block underdrains being installed over-and-over again?
Wouldn’t a monolithic underdrain that features reinforced concrete, is locked into the sidewalls and filter floor, and lasts for many, many decades, be better?
LIFE CYCLE COST WINNER, EVERY TIME
Remember Orthos’ HUGE life cycle cost benefits – At the end of the filter’s life cycle, in contrast to a complete plastic block or folded sheet metal underdrain overhaul, nozzles are simply replaced as the monolithic floor remains part of the civil structure.
