    Powering and pumping your way through floods

    In the past few years, flooding has proven to be a serious problem for Aussies - even when they thought their homes were safe from such a natural disaster.

    In additional to coastal cities such as those impacted by the recent Tropical Cyclone Oswald, anyone living in or near low-lying areas or on the banks of rivers, however small, may want to develop a plan for flooding.

    Tropical Cyclone Oswald, for example, caused about $2.4 billion in flood damage. This took months of recovery and cleanup, requiring expert teams and special equipment.

    Portable pumps were used throughout the country to get rid of trash water that had stagnated and become a public health hazard, while similar machines were used to help residents empty lingering water from their homes.

    Kennards has several pieces of equipment for hire that can help you recover from such a disaster, but the applications of these products go even further.

    For example, trash pumps can be used to remove sludge and even solids as wide as 16mm, and are great for clearing out ponds and dams.

    Often, dryers and dehumidifiers supplied by Kennards are also used during disaster recovery operations.
