Fire Alert… Aussie Gets Ready

Australian Pump Industries team were very happy to support the local RFS ‘Get Ready Weekend’ leading up to Summer. The company, who manufacture the world’s best lightweight portable fire pump right here in the Hills district, were pleased to support the RFS in educating homeowners in how to protect their properties in the event of a fire.

“We know there is a huge build up of fuel in the gullies and valleys around Hills district all the way up to Wisemans Ferry and homes are in a very precarious position”, said Aussie Pumps Brad Farrugia.

“Would you trust a third world pump to save your home, possessions or pets and livestock?” said Brad. Aussie’s Fire Chief uses only Honda petrol engines or Yanmar diesel drives to provide power. Honda engines are famous for starting ‘first time, every time’.

Aussie’s Fire Chief has a bigger body and a larger diameter impeller in the standard model than the opposition, providing more pressure.

The performance curves of a Fire Chief, compared to equivalent single impeller pumps produced by Davey or Onga, very respectable brands that are well known, has a superior high pressure performance of 25%.

The Fire Chief has a recommended retail price including GST of $880. “That’s a pretty good price for the world’s best lightweight portable fire pump and one which also comes with a unique five year warranty!” said Brad.
