    Handy pumps for wet weather

    Published on 25 January 2019, Friday, 6:12 AM

    We are almost through the first month of winter for the year, which means that we can expect more storms, plunging temperatures and a lot more rain across the country in the coming months.

    While some areas are experiencing milder weather and even some sun, be assured that this won't last forever.

    When wild weather lashes a region, state emergency crews are usually inundated with calls - and during this time tradies can find themselves in demand.

    If and when the next weather event affects your region, hiring a submersible pump can help alleviate flooding in areas.

    Available from your local Kennards Hire, there is a large range of pumps available to suit the job at hand, whether it is pumping sewage or dewatering sites that have been inundated.

    Diaphragm pumps are specifically designed for pumping mud, sewage, slurry and sludge, whereas if you have a larger project on your hands that requires the removal of high volumes of water, you may find hiring a flexidrive pump more useful.

    If you have a specific job which requires you to remove liquid from pier holes, a portable water pump will give you access to harder to reach places.
