The recent floods which devastated Queensland sent Water Specialist Australia into overdrive. The Caboolture based Aussie Pump Gold Distributor stocks Aussie QP trash pumps, designed for moving dirty water fast.

“With a large number of flooded basements, car parks and septic tanks, we are able to recommend Aussie trash pumps for their reliability,” said Bruce Henningsen from Water Specialist Australia. “The Aussie 4” trash pumps were particularly popular with businesses and councils in the area, and we have had a lot of positive feedback,” he said.

Recently released by Australian Pump Industries, the 4” pump Flood Master (QP40T/GX390) uses a Honda 13 hp engine as it’s prime power source. With flows to 1800 litres per minute it has a maximum head of 24 metres.

Like all Aussie trash pumps, the QP40T is designed to handle a high percentage of solids in suspension. It’s big, open, “non-clog” style impeller, is made from high SG grade cast iron. An exclusive bronze-copper mechanical seal is equipped as standard to give exceptional abrasion resistance. The bronze-copper mechanical seal can outlast conventional seals by up to six times.

The big 4” pump features an advanced double volute for fast priming, efficiency and self cleaning. It is fitted with a front clean-out port that enables the operator to clean debris from within the pump in a matter of minutes. The big door can be opened without disconnecting suction or delivery pipe work in a matter of seconds.

The Honda drive Aussie pump comes in a heavy duty galvanised roll frame with anti vibration mounts supplied as standard equipment. The pump features excellent efficiencies with a maximum head of 24m. It will self prime from 7.6m.

“We like the Aussie Flood Master trash pumps because they always prime first time, every time,” said Henningsen. “Just what you need from a pump during a flood emergency,” he said.

Like all Aussie quick prime self priming centrifugal pumps the 4” Flood Master trash pump is covered by a free extended Aussie Gold five year pump end warranty and the Honda engine is covered by a three year international Honda warranty.
