Pumps Quotes

Image Quotes about Pumps




Ivor van Heerden - When it comes to a storm like this, the pumps are mission impossible. Number one, they aren't safe for the operators and the second thing is that you need very powerful systems with a very good electrical supply, but the more robust [a storm] is, the harder it is to operate [a pump]. As soon as you start that pump, every bit of trash that gets into the canal gets sucked into the pump. And as soon as buildings start coming apart, the level of debris shoots up dramatically.
