Ask Your Neighbour...
When we decided to upgrade our water system we wanted to make sure it was done right first time. We know the ins and outs of running a dairy support farm and understand the importance of a reliable water supply.

While having a yarn with my neighbour I mentioned that we were going to do an upgrade on our water system, he said “Whatever you do make sure you use Hansen fittings - they last forever!”

So I called Hansen and they got their water specialist Nigel to visit and go through some options on a new layout. In a very short time we had decided on a plan!

Nigel provided us with 20 local stockists and installers. We chose Southland Farm Services as we heard good things about them. Scotty and his team did a great job of installing and they were able to offer some advice for future-proofing the installation along the way.

The extension comprises of 35 troughs, fitted with Superflo and Maxflo valves, over 8km’s of pipe and Hansen’s new MD compression fittings. When Nigel made recommendations to us he urged us to use ball and check valves in the system. We followed his advice and we already found the valves very helpful.

The new system was commissioned on time and within the budget, and from day one it has worked perfectly! After many years of farming I can say things don’t always go to plan and it is rare to find a business so focused on delivering on their promises.

Like my Neighbour we too are now big fans of Hansen’s products and services!
