IS YOUR BEKOMAT CONDENSATE DRAIN BEING CARED FOR?

sept 15 beko 1It is widely accepted that the BEKOMAT condensate drain from BEKO TECHNOLOGIES Ltd is the world’s most reliable condensate drain. With over three million fitted worldwide, it is also the most prolific by a long way.

The problem is that BEKOMAT is so reliable that customers often neglect to undertake the simple servicing requirements- indeed we have seen many examples of BEKOMAT’s functioning reliably after many years use without having ever been serviced! This is fine so long as the drain continues to work- the BEKOMAT is designed to operate for at least one million cycles between each service- it is indeed the Mercedes Benz of the condensate world! But you wouldn’t invest in a Mercedes and then not service it for 10 years, would you! Of course not, you would want your investment to be properly looked after so you get the best performance and value from it.
