We have one of your hydro systems and has been working well since 2004. Only replaced one set of bearings and batteries.

At last hydro fully installed, would just like to comment how much I am impressed with the new model compared with 10 years ago. Once again thanks for your help. I have attached photos etc as required for extended warranty.

All is well, the parts you sent are great and the turbine is purring away.
I am loving all the free hot water on demand! Life is better than ever for us with electricity and all the time savers it allows. We are slowly getting away from butane for cooking.
Thank you for your help, I know you very busy.
As far as hydro turbines go, you can’t really get better than Michael Lawley’s ‘Powerspout’ turbine for the money. Based on a ‘Fischer and Paykel’ washing machine motor and producing up to 1kW these turbines are cheap, well supported and pretty reliable. I don’t pretend to be any expert on these things but I’ve got a ‘Stream Engine’ http://www.microhydropower.com/ operated a ‘Navitron’ http://www.navitron.org.uk/product_detail.php?proID=173&catID=81 and installed a ‘Harris turbine’ http://www.lopowerengineering.com/ . They’re all good and do what they say but one seems to be the best value for money of them all and is available from Hugh Piggott at http://scoraigwind.com/ .
When I purchased mine from Hugh some years ago I bought spare pelton spoons and bearings , mainly because of the free shipping with the turbine. However you get a good toolkit with it that includes a special spanner for the nozzles.

Customer is very pleased, the design sheet calculated 870W, he is getting 900W generated and 20 exported units daily.

Now the festivities are over I want to report back on our Powerspout and Midnight Classic installation. It's incredible! The generator has not been used once this winter. We are making around 250 watts 24/7 with the small nozzles which is enough to fulfil our needs along with our
solar........... even the recording studio. If we do need more I know we can fit the larger nozzles. So once again I´d like to thank you for all your help. I am attaching pics of the installation. Please could you pass these on to Powerspout.
2 years of flawless service from my PowerSpout in the Cascade Mountains of Washington, USA. Very happy!
