Seems this model is permanently set up and has been running nearly every day, all day. The students love it. The teacher who called was worried that the pump might wear out and wanted a spare just in case. And some extra media to replace what ended up on the floor each day.
So after nearly a school year of constant use by young students there are no broken or worn out parts, no complaints. We designed the Emriver to be maintenance free and durable, and clearly achieved that.
And it makes us very happy to know an Emriver is a fixture in this high school.
The photo is of an SIUC class who visited us last January, having a good time with the model, like I’m sure the Vermont high schoolers are.
