GWS Taiwan staff have been actively promoting GWS’s latest product offering, Proline™ Pipe for water well installations.  Initially GWS staff surveyed the market and found some well drillers using stainless steel column pipe for well applications.  Some of the major complaints amongst users of stainless steel pipe is the cost, corrosion as well as the need to weld or bolt together sections of pipe which requires a lot of work and often leaks.  The GWS team initially focused on these aspects and promoted Proline™ as being a lower cost yet higher quality alternative to stainless steel.  It was assumed the lower cost and the fact that Proline™  pipes are corrosion proof and are easy to connect together due to the patented threaded design would sway customers our way, however it turned out the stainless steel pipe users were not persuaded and initially resisted the idea of using Proline™ pipes.  

Consequently the GWS team reevaluated the market situation and found that a large number of well drillers were also using PVC pipes for well installations.  After additional surveys were made it was determined that the main problem with traditional PVC pipe is it must be brought out of the well and cut whenever the submersible pump or motor requires service.  This adds a tremendous amount of time and energy to service calls and most well drillers and pump service providers have been looking for ways to reduce service time and cost.  As it turns out Proline™ pipes are just the thing!  Instead of cutting the pipe, the user simply removes the Proline™ pipe sections by hoisting them out of the well and unscrewing them one section at a time.  After the pump or motor is serviced, the pump along with the Proline™ pipes are screwed back together and reinserted into the well.  No cutting, welding, melting, nor bolting is required!!  This feature combined with Proline™ pipes having all the advantages of stainless steel pipes, such as superior load bearing and pressure bearing specifications compared to traditional PVC pipe, gave us the advantage that the well drillers and pump service providers have been looking for.  In the end perseverance paid off, and GWS Taiwan has already received their first order for a full container of Proline™ pipes!
