Success Story: "...Why We Trust Franklin Electric's Quality"

10/15/2018

Phil Harris recently shared a Franklin Electric motor from 1958 with us to show the value it has brought to a residental home. Here's what he had to say about it...

“Recently pulled this motor installed in 1958, and we are just now replacing it. It supplied water to a residential home, hanging 63 feet on 1-inch galvanized drop pipe. It was a heavy one to pull out, but a great example of why we trust Franklin Electric’s quality.”

Success Story: “…It Was Easy To Choose Franklin”

09/10/2018

Geoff Heanue recently shared his success with our Little Giant® branded Aeration Systems to show the value we’ve brought to his business. Here’s what he had to say about it…

“Our three ponds were so murky and dirty that our fish were literally coming to the top of the water and gasping for air. The need for aeration was an absolute must. We purchased five, one horsepower Little Giant branded Aeration Systems by Franklin Electric, and installed two pumps in each of our larger ponds and one in our smaller pond. The installation was easy and the pumps are working great. We saw value almost immediately. Our fish aren’t dying and the ponds look much cleaner. Being a Franklin Electric Key Dealer in the groundwater industry already, we have built a strong partnership that led to us hearing about the company’s pond management product line. From there, it was easy to choose Franklin.”

Success Story: “These Customers Got Their Money’s Worth From Franklin Electric”

08/04/2018

Jonathan Scronce, an 18-year groundwater veteran, recently shared his story about the value Franklin Electric has brought to his family’s business for more than 70 years. Here’s what he had to say…Scronce Motors

“My family has been loyal to Franklin Electric pretty much since day one, and these motors from 1986 are just two examples of why. While they have since been replaced, I have no doubt that both motors would still be working today if the application was a little different. The first one from Connelly Springs, North Carolina, was put to work for a residential home and farm. From a single 70-foot well, this pump provided roughly 500 gallons a day for three people in the home, and then additionally provided water for 10 head of cattle and three horses. A water line broke, causing the well to run dry, or this motor would still be running today. The second motor was in a unique, hand-dug well about 60-feet deep that supplied water to a residential vacation home in Lake Hickory, North Carolina. The Franklin motor didn’t care, providing seasonal operation for decades until the wet end failed. The motor itself was still working perfectly. After 32 years of service in applications with very high iron, I believe it’s safe to say these customers got their money’s worth from Franklin Electric.”

The Scronce Legacy Lives On 70 Years Later
“I’m a third-generation groundwater professional, and I’ve been in this business nearly my entire life. My grandfather started with a water well distributor before opening his well drilling business in 1947. Grandpa started the family trend of taking pride in our work and reputation, and in the 1960s, a switch to Franklin Electric motors aligned with his vision and drive for quality installations. Our family has remained with Franklin ever since. After more than 40 years in the business, grandpa split the company amongst my dad and uncle and the second Scronce Grandpa Combined Photosgeneration took off. It was an obvious opportunity for me, so starting at the age of 16, you could find me working with my grandpa, dad and/or uncle on a drill rig. I have a passion for the industry, so while both my dad and uncle’s businesses are still going strong, I started Jonathan Scronce Well & Pump Service on my own to widen our presence. About 90 percent of my surrounding area are on private wells, so my company handles everything related to pump and well service work for our customers. I still use Franklin Electric today. It’s tried, tested, and true, and they have been there from the beginning. I know I can trust Franklin Electric!”

Success Story: Franklin Water System Supplying Once Fire-Devastated Area

08/03/2018

Here’s a fun photo and story that was passed along to us about how Franklin Electric products are making a positive influence…

20180620 141858

“In October 2017, wild fires reaching 2,800 degrees destroyed more than 8,500 homes in the Napa Valley area. This Franklin Control System panel with the P-Series Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) was recently installed one mile south of Soda Canyon – one of the most devastated areas. It is the first P-Series VFD that our customer, Brian Allen of North Bay Water, has installed. A groundwater industry veteran for more than 30 years, he has a built a strong comfort level with the Franklin Electric SubDrive® brand and was ready to expand into another one of our solutions.

When the fire came through, it toasted poly tanks so bad that they were left looking like burnt marshmallows. You can see steel struts that once held wooden bridges used as driveways that lead to what are now skeletons of former residential communities. It’s disheartening to think that this once beautiful land is now nothing more than barren, unused space. But, the rebuild has started and we’re excited to be a part of the reshaping in northern California. This particular 12-acre property once contained a residential home and is now being converted to a winery with a tasting room. The water system will be filling up a pond serving as a reservoir for irrigation, pumping 60 gpm at 60 psi at discharge. The water provided with this high-performance well should allow it to flourish. In fact, it’s possible that this single well’s performance may produce enough water for now and the future, eliminating the need to replace two additional wells that were damaged beyond repair from the fire. With a little help from a high-performance water system, this land can provide those around it the beauty it once did!”
