With the winter months being right around the corner and even though it is nice and mild currently, the colder weather unfortunately will be with us soon enough. With this in mind it is very important to remember that if you have got one of our on demand water pumps on hire that they are not designed to be in use in either frosty conditions or in sub-zero temperatures.
Therefore, should the temperature where the pump is being used go down to 1 degree Celsius or lower, then the on demand water pump must then be taken out of service. The on demand water pump needs to be taken out of service because the water could become frozen inside the pump, this could then result the water pump to become damaged and then it would be no longer be fit for purpose and a replacement water pump would then be necessary for the job.

To the avoid damages happening to the on demand water pumps this winter season whilst they are on hire to yourselves, remember once the temperature drops down to 1 degree Celsius to take the pump out of service. This is so that there is no risk of the on demand water pumps becoming damaged from the sub-zero temperatures.
