Our water pumps are very innovative – you may not realise the great benefits that come with a pump being powered by LPG. During times of prolonged warm weather with little rainfall that dissolves oxygen within the water, it can decrease at rapid pace and could (in the worst case scenario) completely deoxygenate. This could cost a UK fishery thousands of pounds in just a matter of hours and put the business back years in order to replenish fish stocks to similar levels.
Fisheries are generally rural based business, so most sites are only served by limited electricity and in order to run mains electric to many lakes would cost extortionate amounts of money that most businesses are not prepared to pay. Especially when there is an easy alternative…
Greengear offer 4 different models of Water Pump:
So now we know the different options, what benefits can an LPG Water Pump offer?
The water pump 2 and 3 weigh 24 and 27kg’s so is easily transportable via a 1 man lift. Additionally the cylinders are transported and rolled in to position creating no additional manual handling issues.
Calor GB have been supplying Greengear water pumps around the UK to fisheries in preparation for the Greengear launch this Spring and Gavin Hewitt Energy Centre Manager for Calor quoted:
“The Greengear water pumps have a multitude of uses within the fishery and fisheries management industry. From draining down lakes prior to fish grading or netting to aeration in times of low Dissolved Oxygen levels and ice prevention during the winter months, these pumps will do just about everything a fishery needs. The additional environmental benefits are also key to any rural business due to the extended running times, low emissions, safe and convenient refuelling i.e. no spillages near the water table and of course the low noise levels when compared to their petrochemical equivalents”.
