Weather forecasters are predicting a colder than average
December! During the winter months we all need to put on extra
layers to stay warm but it's not just us that need looking after as
the temperature drops. Whenever the UK experiences a cold snap, the
amount of calls our Pump Assist team receive increases.
Cold weather can damage your pump if it is not properly
insulated. Pumps, flexible hoses and all associated pipework should
be insulated against the cold weather to avoid the risk of
freezing, so please take a look at where the pump is situated and
consider the following points to protect it during the winter
- Have you insulated the pump for extreme conditions?
- Ensure the insulation materials cannot become entangled in the
pumps rotating shaft
- Ensure insulation materials cannot be drawn into the cooling
- Don't cover the motor or fan casing. The vent slots need access
to ambient air at all times
If you have any questions on how to protect your pump from the
cold weather, simply call Pump Assist on 0844 98 000 97 or drop us
an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
and one of the team will be happy to guide you through any
installation issues you might have.
