Australian Pump, Australia’s leading supplier and manufacturer of lightweight, portable fire pumps is campaigning to bring quality supply to consumers. They list five factors to consider when buying a quality pump to protect your property this bushfire season. They are as follows;
1. Pump Performance
Check out the actual pump performance curve of the product you are buying. Don’t rely on a salesman telling you that anything with a Honda engine must be the same quality. The performance is everything and that gets back to how much water you can throw at a fire in the quickest possible time. It can be life or death.
2. Quality of components
Comparing Aussie Pumps with competitors is chalk and cheese. Aussie’s impeller weighs significantly more (up to 3 ½ times) than competitors and that provides a longer life and better performance. The huge 7 ½ “ diameter gives more pressure and more flow at pressure.
3. Fast priming is essential
Some third world pumps will only prime from 3 metres. The average fire pump will prime through a vertical lift of 6m. The Aussie Fire Chief will prime through a vertical lift of 7.6m depths! This becomes critical as water levels drop.
Most fire pumps come with a one year pump end warranty. Aussie gives an exclusive and unique five year warranty on all of its Aussie QP pumps, including the Aussie Fire Chief. Why? Because the pump simply performs better and is built to a quality standards.
Getting a top quality fire pump like the Aussie Fire Chief means paying a fair price. The company doesn’t inflate it’s prices to give artificial discounts later. They believe the user should buy at a fair price which is the advertised price.
