I am delighted to say that they discovered the faulty component, replaced it and shipped the items back to me in West London. After reinstalling the hydraulic lift mechanism the wheelchair user now has a fully functional hydraulic bath. It has now been operating perfectly for the last 3 weeks. The service provided by Hydraulics Online was exceptional.

We are a small charity that run boats on the Union and the Forth and Clyde canals for people with special needs. We needed the valve for our boat lift in our boathouse; the original unit burned out due to a faulty switch.
We really didn’t expect the unit until Monday, but received it on Saturday morning and had the lift working again in the afternoon!
