FIRE SEASON IS ALL YEAR ROUND
According to the ABC, bushfires are now becoming an all-year round threat in Australia, increasing the need for water pumps for fire fighting. Continuously rising global temperatures and prolonged drought are affecting the safety and productivity of everyday Australians in affected areas. CSIRO, which has been in bushfire research for more than sixty years, predicts that many regions will see a significant increase in the highest levels of fire danger in the year ahead.
Authorities such as the Country Fire Authority (CFA) recommends keeping a firefighting pump that is protected from radiant heat and not reliant on mains power supply as one of the minimum factors to actively defend your property in case of a bushfire.
What are Fire Fighting Pumps?
Fire fighting pumps are water pumps which feature high water pressure, high flow performance characteristics. These special features make them suitable not only for firefighting, but also water transfer, high head dewatering, construction site dust suppression, and fast fill tanker applications. They can also be used as a washdown pump for machineries, assets and properties.
Firefighting Pump Applications
Fire fighting pumps are versatile units which can be used in both critical and everyday situations. When not being used for bushfire defence and firefighting, they can be utilised for irrigation, water transfer and vehicle or equipment cleaning. Many people choose fire fighting pumps because of this flexibility.
Choosing the right Firefighting Pump
The most important thing to get right is the water moving performance you need. Check the flow, head, and pressure to make sure you can get the water where you need it, at the right pressure.
Our most popular firefighting pump model is the MHGP15-SHP which provides excellent performance at a great value!
