Followed by a run-down of the fire fighting pumps. Here we encountered our first challenge. The main pump was very noisy and also leaking plenty of oil.
Blocked drain hole on the pump flange caused the pump shaft to corrode and then the seal to fail.
Below is the old pump and the control panel. Many of the valves were leaking and the fittings were badly corroded. The owners decided to turf the set-up and replace the pump with the more reliable Davey Pump.
Old foot well and pumps removed, ready to make way for the new.
We designed a new plumbing system that could pump water out the front under the bumper, out the rear under the bumper , from the fire fighting hose reel, and the mass discharge pipe at the rear.
The new foot well with pump mounted.
Notice the sprayers under the bumper, and the mass discharge pipe on top of the tanker.
Jerry can racks were made up and fitted to the LHS of the truck, petrol and diesel reserves.
Enquiries regarding this type of repair are welcome.
