Aqua Control Inc.’s founder, chief engineer, and owner, Willis Dane, is raising the bar in the water features industry yet again. After more than 4 years of development, the Endur Series (patent pending) is set to continue ACI’s progressive impact on the water feature industry following the recent path of the innovative and newly released ACI Select Series 2 (SS2).
The Endur Series focuses on a high caliber motor design smartly matched with the best of the Select Series and SS2 pump components. Willis set about to design the Endur Series with one simple goal, to create a long lasting, submersible, water feature motor. He sought to create a motor that would offer a superior life span and thus solve the longevity problems often associated with the current water feature motors on the market. Willis could identify that the failure of most water feature motors was due to a single seal design. The popular single seal design left motors very vulnerable to permanent failure as a single seal does not allow for any back-up protection once the seal is compromised.
Willis has eradicated this concern with the Endur Series. The Endur Series motor boasts 3 individual mechanical seals. The first / outer seal is a highly abrasion resistant SiC/SiC mechanical seal. The intermediate and seal and the final interior seal are a long life SiC / carbon mechanical seal. In between each seal is a large oil filled reservoir specifically designed to capture any water or debris that may enter the reservoir if a seal failure does occur. The design of these reservoirs allows the water and debris to be trapped at the bottom of the reservoir therefore keeping any foreign materials from coming in contact with the seal within the compromised reservoir.
Another integral piece of Willis’s design was finding a high-quality, long lasting, synthetic oil. Willis achieved this in finding a synthetic oil that offers excellent high and low temperature performance to meet the needs of Aqua Control’s customers in all climates. This oil is also readily biodegradable as Aqua Control strives to be environmentally responsible.
At Aqua Control, we are so confident in the new Endur Series design that we are launching it with a 6-year warranty. This is the longest warranty yet to be offered in the water feature industry!
