Quality:

I've run in to products from other companies that are not up to our standards of quality, yet cost the same or even more. If you are considering other brands ask these questions:

  • How long have they been in business?
  • What kind of support to they offer? What is the warantee?i
  • Are twist-lock flanges included, or even available?
  • Do they counter sink every tube glue joint for strength?
  • Do they use 3/8" cast acrylic on all flanges, or go with cheaper 1/4"?
  • Do they use cheap white PVC fittings, or heavy duty SCH-80 fittings?
  • Is the Beckett injector secure yet easily removable, or is it simply wedged in to a piece of pipe?
  • Do they use 1" input plumbing, or 3/4" (or even 1/2"!)
  • Is the gate valve threaded on both sides, or is it glued to the box (not replaceable or cleanable)?
  • Does it even have a gate valve?
  • Can you break it fully down for cleaning (no blocked chambers)?

If the answers to all the above are not YES, then you are not getting what you paid for. Many places claim to be high quality, but very few of them truly understand the term. Check in to their claims. You will not be able to find a higher quality design than a Barr Aquatics design.
