October 19, 2017 - I admit that sometimes I pay more for name brand than I should, particularly when something doesn't cost that much. However, if "big money" is involved, I do my homework and avoid even name brand products with known design concerns, don't you?
ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS
X 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,
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.

20 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE
The countdown has begun! In mere months, ORTHOS will celebrate our upcoming 2018 platinum anniversary of ZERO monolithic filter underdrain failures.
Traditionally, the 20-year anniversary gift is breakable china, but that would be like the multitude of plastic block or folded sheet metal underdrain failures--not ORTHOS! We're going platinum!
