I think the economy is improving

RE: I think the economy is improving
Ardex not standing behind their product???? Exclamation

I just had a guy tell me Ardex denied his claim because he used the wrong RPM drill.

On the one hand I can see if the product was lumpy and unmixed, or perhaps bubbly and frothy, it could cause problems. And I also wonder why an installer would use a drill with the wrong RPM.

Our drill is the perfect RPM for mixing. We also mix exactly for the recommended time. Why not? It sure isn't hard to do! And I can tell you that when we got a couple semi-loads of recalled product from a certain manufacturer (NOT Ardex btw) and they sent a couple big-shots out to find a flaw in my methods, they could get nothing on my guys. We had digital timers to time our mixing. We had the right barrels, the right mixing paddles, the right drill speed. Our water was metered exactly.

We can make the choice to follow the manufacturer's recommendations or we can decide to do something else. I find it easier to follow the book.

How in the world did I get on this rant??? Huh Sorry guys.... Tongue
