Ensure your pumps are ready for the harsh winter weather and avoid costly downtime by following these six simple tips.

  • Empty all pipelines of water if possible.

  • If possible drain the pump out using the drain plug should the pump have one.

  • Insulate your pumps; wrap them in lagging or insulation.

  • If possible, situate the pumps inside an enclosure or pump room.

  • If your pumps are inside an enclosure or room, install a heater.

  • For air powered pumps, ensure the air exhaust pipe discharges into a warm environment.
