Don’t just take our word for it, look at what our customers have to say about us.
“Before HOA Solutions installed VFD’s, we had a high number of water main leaks. We averaged 15-20 leaks per year, with our highest being 32 water main leaks in one year. We already had mercury slow starts on all High Service pumps, but if the check valve wasn’t set just right, the High Service pumps would slam shut or would open too fast, causing water hammer in the system and within a few days another water main leak. We estimate the leaks to the cost between $3,000.00 and $7,000.00 to repair, depending on the severity of the leak, size of the pipe, and the location. We were also concerned about contamination within the water system. After we installed the first VFD, our electric bill went down. We could also control the amount of water pumped and how fast the pump started and stopped. That first year our water main breaks went down to 10-15 breaks per year. Two years later, HOA installed two more VFD’s and our electric bill went down a third. Our water main breaks have gone down to about one main break a year, after installing the 2 wells. This has also saved us on our electric bill and I do believe it is saving on maintenance and the motors are all running cooler and more efficient.”

“As a General Contractor involved in the procurement and construction of Water and Waste Water facilities it is imperative that the Systems Integrator provides three essential components for the completion of a successful project:
- Complete and Competitive proposals: Treatment plants delivered in the Design-Bid format can be difficult to provide complete and competitive proposals due to the numerous entities involved in the project from engineers, contractors and suppliers.
- Field Installation-Start-up: Systems Integration is complex and typically outside the expertise of the General contractor, it is imperative that the Systems Integrator is capable of the coordination of the field installation and the Startup of the System.
- Systems Reliability and Follow Up: Availability and prompt response is critical to the end user for a successful operation of the plant.
HOA Solutions, Inc., has met and exceeded all of the essential components for the successful completion of our Treatment Plant projects. HOA Solutions would be our recommendation for any project needing Systems Integration.”
