Every year, thousands of women up and down the country walk or run 5km in order to raise money for Cancer Research UK. This event is known as the ‘Race for Life’. The Race for Life events are normally organised and scheduled for the middle of June, in the hope that bright, sunny weather will make the day even more enjoyable. However, this wasn’t the case for Leicester this year! After a lot of rain, the park where the Race for Life was supposed to be held became extremely wet after a lot of rain, meaning that the event had to be cancelled. The organisers re-scheduled this event to be held in July in the hope of better weather, but unfortunately this wasn’t to be the case. Even more rain fell, meaning that once again the park was waterlogged. This highlights the extent of the awful weather we have seen this Summer! So now, the Race for Life runners are preparing once again, this time planning to run the race this weekend!
Over the last couple of months rain has caused a massive annoyance- events have been washed out, days out have had to be cancelled and the fear of flooding has heightened. Looking at the weather forecast, us Britons hope to hear of warm, sunny weather to come but this is not to be the case. The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for most of England next Monday and Tuesday, warning that due to persistent and heavy rain predicted as well as gale force winds localised flooding is likely to occur. So the best advice that we can give you is to prepare for this flooding disaster in advance.
But how can we prepare for such a disaster? Genpower offer a range of petrol and diesel water pumps in order to minimise problems caused by the predicted flooding that lays ahead. The Hyundai HY25-2 petrol water pump is one of the most popular water pumps that Genpower has to offer due to it being one of the most lightweight and portable petrol driven water pumps that you can buy- weighing an incredibly small 6.5kg. The HY25-2 petrol water pump is an ideal water pump for small emergency drainage and irrigation issues.
For those looking for a more powerful water pump the Hyundai HYH50 high pressure 50mm petrol water pump may be the ideal water pump for you! With a 4-stroke OHV petrol engine and a maximum water flow rate of 30,000 litres per hour this water pump is a must-have for flooding disasters! Weighing in at only 26kg this compact high pressure water pump is also extremely portable meaning transportation shouldn’t pose a problem.
So give the Genpower team a call on 01646 663848 who will be more than happy to help you choose the ideal petrol or diesel water pump to help minimise the damages caused by flooding this winter time. Or for more technical specifications, pictures and videos please take a look at our website.
