Australia is no stranger to the ever-present perils of a bushfire, especially in the hotter and drier months. Fighting fires is becoming more commonplace, and, if not dealt with appropriately, fires can cause unprecedented damage as we saw in the Black Summer of 2019–20.
But you have already won half the battle if you are well prepared and having a high-pressure fire-fighting pump does exactly that. Fire-fighter pumps boost water pressure in your systems and deliver the amount of water needed. This is essential when your system is connected to a tank that has no or inadequate pressure. Whether you are a professional tradie, or a homeowner, Jono & Johno has a wide range of fire-fighting pump kits for you.
At Jono & Johno, we sell a range of fire hose pumps, may it be single impeller pumps for day-to-day usage, or twin impeller pumps for, quite literally, high-pressure situations. Whether you seek the ease of an electric start, or prefer the traditional recoil start, we have it all.
All of our fire-fighting pump kits come with a variety of accessories to use with them. This also includes batteries, if you go for an electric start pump. Our experts will happily answer questions, and help you choose the right water pump for your fire hose.
Despite its name, a fire-fighting pump does much more than just that. Of course (and hopefully) you won’t be fighting fires in your backyard every day, but with the right product and fire pump accessories, you can do anything from water transfer to irrigation and cleaning. As such, choosing the right fire-fighting pumps and hoses is important, and must be based on the uses you foresee for them.
There are a few factors to account for, apart from just your predicted use, though. Size does matter in this regard, but big doesn’t necessarily imply better — it depends on what your need is. The kind of water you use the pump for — clean or dirty — also affects your decision, and so does the desired pressure and flow rate.
If you need to transfer or empty out pools or pits, one of our transfer pumps could be the ideal pick for you. Some of the higher-end models can even be integrated into your pressure systems or used for garden irrigation.
Similarly, if you are looking for a portable and multipurpose solution, take a look at the camping pumps we have on offer for lightweight, yet effective options. Camping, water tank transfers, gardening, gold sluicing, these pumps do it all!
Make sure you check out all our water pumps as, irrespective of the pump you purchase, you’ll get bang for your buck.
Owning a water or fire pump in Australia is a no-brainer, especially if you are a homeowner. At Jono & Johno, we’re to help you make the right choice. Get in touch with us today, and we will be glad to help you choose from our range of high-pressure fire-fighting pumps and beyond.
