If you have read any of my post's, you know I have to agree mostly
with TnB= Gir...
What do mean by "mostly"
They have some new 5-way nozzle bodies, nickel plated brass, that are just plain sick... Using (5) of them in a new build.
Koolance's problem IMO
, is not the lack of innovative ideas, but the lack of properly implementing them...
Like TnB mentioned, biggest problem I have with them is their first choice of metal, always seems to be ALUMINUM
. (cheap way out)
COPPER + BRASS + NICKEL + ALUMINUM = GALVANIC CORROSION
= BAD THINGS
If only distilled H2O is used Galvanic Corrosion will not occur, only when you start adding things to the water, ie. algacide or dye...
My humble advice, stay away from 98% of KOOLANCE products...
Just to inform you before you ask, never ever forget:
