The bushfire season is upon us and after a very wet winter it is vital to ensure your property is adequately prepared and protected. When bushfires threaten, you can protect your home if it has been well prepared. You can set up a fire protection system that will give you the best chance of defending your property. However, lives are more important and you should consider your family circumstances before deciding on your own survival plan.
Essential requirements include a property that is defendable in a bushfire, an adequate water supply and a quality, high performance fire pump. The Aussie Fire Chief, sold at Top Town Traders in Parkes, is the world’s best portable
A key aspect of getting the best out of the pump is regular maintenance to ensure the pump will perform as required.
You need to check the engine oil level, ensure the air and oil filters are clean, flush out stale fuel and ensure the engine starts easily. You also need to check the condition of the suction and delivery hoses and ensure the pump is primed. A pump that sucks air won’t prime.
Check for leaks and replace seals if necessary. Check suction filter on supply hose if fitted. The most important point is to make sure everyone knows how to operate the system and use a fire pump. Contact Top Town Traders for more information.
