GASLEC and Stuart Turner Pumps
The number of failing water boosting pumps is on the increase. According to Paul Milford, Managing Director at GASLEC Exeter,
‘With many properties needing one or more pumps to maintain ‘mains’ pressure, we’ve seen a sharp increase in the number of call-outs in 2016 to fix faulty water pumps’.
OFWAT (The economic regulator of the water sector in England and Wales) describes ‘sharing a supply pipe from the water main’ as a common cause of low water pressure.
The majority of call-outs by GASLEC engineers to fix a faulty water-boosting pump have been due to a complete failure in the water-boosting pump itself.
Paul Milford said
‘Given the critical job many of these water boosting pumps perform, we’ve decided to replace all failed water pumps with professional water pumps manufactured by Stuart Turner’.
Stuart Turner Pumps have been manufactured here in the United Kingdom since 1906 and are recognised by plumbing professionals as the leading manufacturer of high-quality pump solutions including shower pumps and whole house water pressure boosting pumps
Recently, John Curtis and Paul Milford from GASLEC attended the Stuart Turner Academy to better understand water pump solutions and how to specify, install and maintain them.
GASLEC have been awarded Approved Installer status and as such, are able to specify, install and maintain the range of Stuart Turner shower pumps and whole house water pressure boosting pumps.
