Reliable service over many years!

RO equipment that can cope with the chemically treacherous water in the Canary Islands can operate anywhere in the world.

Cat Pumps have proven themselves suited to the task. The first eight 6767 pumps were installed in 1985 and provided trouble-free operation until 1992. The system was expanded and eight 6761 SS pumps have provided trouble-free operation and are still running in 2002. Due to the overwhelming reliability, a new larger system using the three model 152R080 is being installed.

Pump maintenance is minimal and the energy consumption is now merely 2.64 kW-h/m3. Cat Pumps have successfully produced potable water from the 38,000 ppm seawater during more than 1,000,000 hours of operation and improved product quality to less than 250 ppm.

Since 1979, we have designed and built pump systems for many high pressure applications. We choose Cat Pumps for these systems because of their quality, dependability, and overall performance. Their proven design and rugged construction assure our customers long-term performance and less downtime. One of our most popular systems is a combination wash down and fire protection package featuring Cat Pumps. We manufacture these systems for the offshore oil industry that requires our equipment meet Coast Guard and ABS requirements. These systems also function as standby fire protection units by surrounding critical areas with high pressure spray nozzles. Our customers have come to expect the durability, reliability, and proven reputation of Cat Pumps for this application.

We don't use any substitutes! We know Cat Pumps are dependable.

If a customer is not convinced to use a Cat Pump and asks me to substitute another pump, I cover the difference in cost, because I know who is going to get the call when the other pump goes down. Whether it's a Model 310 or Model 3535, I have learned that you can reduce your operating costs with the dependability of Cat Pumps.

Top Performance Under Pressure!

"Because of their quality and reliability, Cat Pumps are the most popular choice of our customers. The model 3535 pump is requested about 95% of the time on our D & S 5000 touch free automatic and it is the only pump we offer on our Super 5000 vehicle sizing automatic. In the touch free automatic business, constant high pressure is vital to ensuring a quality wash. Cat Pumps continues to offer superior performance for our car wash equipment."

Best Value

With Cat Pumps being standard equipment on the Hydro-Tek, Ultimate series, it is easier to sell. I believe it is the best pressure washer value in America and the Cat Pump goes a long way in making it possible. The pump lasts longer with less maintenance, which means a happy customer, more referrals, less down time, and less required inventory.

Target Level Customer Service

"I feel that I got the quickest reply that I have ever experienced from any customer service department when I visited the Cat Pumps website. I received a return phone call from the company before I had exited the website. I also received an email reply from their service department (completely different department) within minutes. Customer service is everything today and it appears that Cat Pumps' customer service is the target level that every other company should be shooting for. I only hope that my companies are coming somewhat close to the Cat Pumps' customer service."

Cat Pumps are the standard for the industry. Cat Pumps seals last twice as Long as other pumps.

I have been a distributor of car wash systems for 8 years and always specify the Cat Pumps Model 3535 because it has a good reputation and it runs a long time without service. I have tried other pumps, but had problems with reclaim water and early seal failure. Cat Pumps seals last twice as long as other pumps. Cat Pumps are the standard for the industry.

We just never use anything but Cat Pumps. The other brands never came up to specified performance.

We have used both 310 and 530 Cat Pumps in our car washes for the past 15 years and have always found them to be very reliable and easy to maintain. We can tell by the sound of the pump exactly what needs to be done. We did try a competitive brand, but it ran hot and never came up to the specified performance. After that, we just decided to never use anything but Cat Pumps.

We have been field testing the Cat Pumps in our Ranger Wildland Firefighting units for the past two years and are very impressed with the performance. These units are portable, provide excellent water conservation and help reduce the stress on the firefighter. With the pumps ability to educt 1% to 5% class A form, we are able to knock down 7 to 10 foot flames in only seconds and eliminate most rekindles. As a certified wildland firefighter and trainer, these Class A foam firefighting units provide a much needed addition to our wildland fire suppression arsenal.

Old Faithful

"I wanted to share with you a true story about one of your CAT 310 Pumps. It is located in the equipment room of Palmer Auto Wash in Palmer, MA. It has been in service since December 9th, 1986. To date I have only rebuilt the head once and quite honestly only changed the oil a few times over the nearly 18 years it has been pumping away. It was sold to me as part of a Mark VII pumping station. The pump [S/N 7860123] is powered by a 3 hp 208V motor and to date, it still puts out 1100 PSI! I cannot explain how this has outlasted my other units. We have nicknamed this unit, "old faithful". Well after all these years of waiting for this pump to fail, I figure I should write your company and tell you about old faithful. "

Robert Ainsworth
Palmer Auto Wash

PS - I would ask you what the trade in value for old faithful is, but in my mind, it's not for sale at any price

"We use Cat Pumps exclusively. We cannot afford a breakdown on the job site. We need a pump that is dependable when locating utility lines. Cat Pumps provides that dependability.

The Cat Pump is a Superior Product. They will outlast any pump on the market!

My first car wash was built in 1985 and I am still using the same Cat Pump today. I now have 30 Cat Pumps and they are all running great.

I have tried three other brands and they all had constant seal failures and cost me lots of money to keep running. If you change oil like you are supposed to, the Cat Pump will outlast any pump on the market. They give me better service and require less maintenance than other pumps.

Cat Pumps are great! The only maintenance we do is an oil change.

Our Cat Pump 310's have been running in our car wash for the past 7 years without any repairs. The only maintenance we've done is an oil change. We oil every day and have had absolutely no problems! We run reclaim water and city water through these pumps and are able to adjust the pressure down to 200 psi to have an R.O. spot free rinse without any difficulty. The pumps are great!

Exceptional reliability decided our next purchase.

When we recently doubled the capacity of one of the largest auto auction detail facilities in the east to 22 pump stations, we chose to stay with Cat Pumps for their exceptional reliability over the last 8 years.

We completely detail almost 500 cars a day, working two shifts, six days a week. Our pumps run over 4500 hours a year with only minimal maintenance.

 No Problems. Great Performance.

"I have used Cat Pumps 310 pumps for eight years. I talk with operators that use other brand pumps and they have nothing but problems. I have had nothing but great performance from my Cat Pumps. When you own a car wash, you have to buy the stuff that lasts and Cat Pumps are the best!"

Cat Pumps perform under pressure

We recommend Cat Pumps to our customers because of quality, durability and performance under pressure. They are truly the Pumps with Nine Lives.

STILL GOING STRONG!

Three of the four pumps in my car wash are the old Model 320 Cat Pumps.

They were installed in the early '80's and are still running strong. Each pump runs an average of 25 hours per week at 1000 PSI and they run great!

 CAT PUMPS NEVER LET ME DOWN

I have used Cat Pumps for nearly 30 years and have 95 pumps running now. They have never let me down. I know guys that have used those so called "Better Quality and Lower Priced" pumps and had to replace them with Cat Pumps after a very short time.

With the cost of downtime, I can't imagine anyone using any pump other than a Cat Pump!

Tom Hoffman

Serious car wash owners demand Cat Pumps. The pumps with nine lives.

I purchased my first automatic car wash system six years ago with a Model 3535 Cat Pump. The only service needed was periodic oil changes and after 200,000 cars washes, one seal kit. I have since purchased three more automatic car wash systems and specified Cat Pumps on them all. I will only use Cat Pumps because I know I can count on their performance and will not have expensive maintenance costs.

Amir Jeshini

 Cat Pumps require very little service!

I purchased my first car wash in 1982 and the second in 1986. These washes have always used the Model 623 Piston Pumps. These original belt-drive pumps have run over 20 years and have never failed me.

I have since purchased washes with the Model 310 Pumps, upgraded other brands to the Model 340 Pumps and more recently converted some units to the Model 310W Pumps.

It's a comfort to know you can count on Cat Pumps running year after year.

 We specify only Cat Pumps. These pumps really deliver!

Nine years ago we purchased our self service equipment. It came with Cat Pumps and are we glad it did! The only maintenance we have had to do in the last nine years is changing the oil. We have tried other brands and had failures in less than two years. We find the Cat Pumps to deliver a true rated performance, operate smoothly and perform with extreme reliability. Now we specify only Cat Pumps in our car wash equipment.
