Rains-Flo Sealing Systems are all pre-cut and sized for each pump, and are packaged as a convenient kit or set. Each set provides all the material needed to fill the stuffing box, plus two additional rings for later maintenance. These two extra rings are used for later addition to the Sealing system as needed to control leakage.
When comparing price, please take into consideration these two extra rings. Rains-Flo Sealing Systems will also last two to three times longer than braided packing, so the price for one Rains-Flo Sealing System is already less expensive than braided packing.
Another huge cost saving benefit of using Rains-Flo compared to braided packing is that since our packings last longer and provide superior sealing performance, the labor cost which is involved with the pump is greatly reduced. With Rains-Flo, less time will be spent on re-packing and cleanup, resulting in less downtime, which always translates to less operating costs.
With Rains-Flo, you will be providing a superior Sealing System, which is the most reliable and economical product available. The end result will be that you will have the finest-operating pump possible. As mentioned before, packing is one of the least expensive parts of your pump, it is the one place where you cannot afford to settle for less than the best.
