You’re getting warmer!


In the UK and other northern hemisphere locations, the heating season has come, or is coming, to an end.

Your pumps can now enjoy a summer of inactivity and a rest from keeping the place toasty.

Summer holidays are coming and before we know it, Autumn will quickly follow.

The point of this temperature and season-centred ramble, is to remind you that NOW is the time to service your heating systems. Especially those hard-working pumps!

Get your heating pump service booked now, and avoid that spine-chilling sensation of switching back on to find that all is not well!

King Canute couldn’t turn the tides either!

Thames-Barrier

London is seeing higher tides and more frequently needs to raise the Thames Barrier to protect from flooding. The services and systems that control the barrier run in tunnels beneath the Thames are also prevented from flooding by a series of pumps.

Keeping these pumps running is a vital part of the security against the flooding of London.

Through a system of planned maintenance and gradual up-grading, Cougar have for several years ensured that these vital systems are always ready to run.

If you have pumping equipment that absolutely must work when called upon we would be delighted to discuss them with you.

Be Prepared – Ensure you have preventative maintenance in place prior to the winter months!

Industrial Pump System

All pump systems consist of mechanical devices which require maintenance periodically.The frequency of maintenance depends on the demands, the loads of a system and how critical the application is. Routine maintenance to a pump system is critical for longevity and reliability.

Common Pump Issues:

Sewage pump system failures can be caused by increasing amounts of blockages within the pumps and valves, which trigger unreliability- meaning the pump could fail at any given moment without any prior warning- and result in sewage flooding. Pump downtime can cause inconvenience to your business and emergency call-outs are often expensive and can require tankering.

Unmaintained booster sets can result in inconsistent water pressure and ultimately cause failure of your water supply. Typically on a cold water system, it will be the non-return valve or pressure vessel which fails, causing damage to the pipework resulting in erratic water pressure. A block of flats with no water supply or car wash service with fluctuating pressure soon becomes an emergency.

What are the solutions:

A well maintained pump system is far less likely to give you unexpected issues. Get the peace of mind you deserve! Rest assured that even when your system is running under maximum load, it will remain efficient.

When routine maintenance is carried out by highly trained personnel, it ensures all system components are thoroughly assessed on a regular basis, detecting any issues that are likely to arise while also identifying any components that need replacing to allow system efficiency.
