Protect your Pump from Frost with a Pump Saver

How does a pump saver work?

When the temperature drops, the lamp will come on automatically and give enough heat to protect the pump from frost damage. To increase frost protection, you can also insulate the pump shed and lag pipes.

A pump saver only needs to save your pump from frost once to pay for itself. With Invercargill having an average of 95 frosty days per year, it’s pretty easy for pump saver to pay for itself down South.

What are the Advantages of a Pump Saver?

It goes without saying, saving your pump from frost damage will save you money. Ongoing maintenance costs could also be reduced because the pump saver stops the pump from freezing up, which could stress parts. The Pump Saver will only operate when the temperature drops to freezing (or whatever pre-set level). There are also other heating options, such as using a small space heater for larger areas. Having a pump saver can offer you peace of mind during the winter months and ensure you have a plumbing system that is reliable and long-lasting.

A Pump Saver is Easy to Install

Installation is simple. All you need is a 230-volt power outlet to supply the pump saver. It’s designed to be left on all the time and come on automatically. It can be installed by anybody, as long as there is a constant power source available. The heat lamp can easily be checked by dialling up the temperature on the thermostat.

Mount the pump saver thermostat on the wall alongside the pump (making sure the heat lamp is not shining onto the thermostat). Hang the heat lamp above the pump using a hook and make sure it at least 450mm away from surfaces.

Set the thermostat to 2°C and plug it into a continuous power supply, making sure the plug is not controlled by a floating switch or pressure switch as this would cause the heat lap to only come on when the pump is running.
