We are still seeing occasions of pumps disengaging when the primer is operated. This is not acceptable.

Users are advised to perform daily checks on the pump including activating the primer to ensure that it does not cause the pump to disengage.

If the pump disengages, contact the service provider without delay to remedy this fault.

Send a courtesy email to terry.bird@fireandemergency.nz so that we have overview across our Local.
