May. 08, 2022

Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co., Port Orange, Fla., a manufacturer of heavy-duty portable diesel-powered bypass and dewatering pumps, is offering tips to help people prepare for the upcoming hurricane season.

The company says the following are well-thought-out steps that will go a long way toward reducing the negative impacts a hurricane can have on a city and its citizens, essential services and the overall economy.

  • Inspect pumps today
  • Service and repair equipment before you need it, including correcting fittings and hoses
  • Clean out drains
  • Pump down lakes and ponds
  • Check fuel supplies
  • Stock up on spare parts for emergency repairs
  • Identify areas more susceptible to major storm damage that can be serviced immediately

“It is critical to take these steps now, because during the one or two days leading up to the storms, the call volumes for emergency assistance go up and it is often too late to do all that needs to be done to prepare in hopes of minimizing any damage,” said Chris Thompson, president, Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co.
