Grundfos price increase
Grundfos are raising all of their prices in the next quarter (and the other European manufacturers will follow suit).

As we have Christmas and other holidays around the corner, and with the yet unresolved matter of possible trade tariffs with the EU I have some advice for you.

Get your orders in now!

It seems obvious I know, but I thought you might like reminding.

Make your first stop Strate!

This rather simple looking valve is the clever bit!

Due to their patented design, these valves allow 100 % free passage and low flow resistance in the very reliable and easily maintained STRATE sewage pumping stations.

Jolly good solutions for

  • Sewage handling or media with solids and coarse solids, sludge (up to 5 % TM)
  • Fresh and service water technology, including in areas where high pressure losses make powerful pumps necessary
  • Areas where quiet operation is particularly important

Magnetic Charm!
These little beauties (sad but true, in the pump world these are good looking!) are magnetic coupled pumps, so no mechanical seals to fail and leak. That’s good isn’t it?

Not only does that save you money, but also limits the risk of leaking nasties on your floor.

Revelling in the moniker “UTS EVO” from CDR Pumps, their new magnetic couplings are highly efficient and linked to redesigned hydraulics there is an overall improvement of 21% in efficiencies. Not to be sniffed at!

Want to know more? We would be seriously charmed to make your acquaintance.

Grill Phil!
“Phil, what sort of guarantee do you offer on the pumps you supply?”

The manufacturer’s guarantee comes with everything we supply. These are typically one year or two years against manufacturing faults in either workmanship or materials.

All of our repairs and installations are likewise guaranteed for one year.

There is then my own special guarantee.
“All of your pumps will fail. I absolutely guarantee it!”

The only question is “when?”

The one constant in an ever-changing life is that pumps always fail at exactly the wrong moment. Just as you are leaving work on a Friday evening, Sunday as you are enjoying a day of rest, when you are the only person on call. You get the idea.

There is no complete answer to this, but we can help.

Get a service contract for your pumping systems.

With regular visits by trained technicians we do cut the number of un-wanted breakdowns and increase your up-time.
