Saniflo pump pre-empts floods
Flood preparation in Staffordshire village
After the local river burst its banks and flooded homes in a rural Staffordshire village last year, the Parish Council put a flood plan in place in case of a repeat this winter.
Part of the plan included the purchase of a submersible pump that can be loaned to houses that need to get rid of excess rain water in cellars, garages and rainwater manholes.
The SANISUB® STEEL pump and emergency kit is a portable, ready-to-use solution that can be quickly deployed in the event of a flood in a domestic, agricultural or small industrial property.
Manufactured from durable stainless steel, the pump with its 9 m³/h flow rate and lifting height of 7.5m, quickly and efficiently pumps water and the kit comes complete with a basket that protects the pump from floating foreign bodies. It is supplied with a quick coupling for the 15m evacuation hose and a hose support that prevents possible hose pinching whilst the pump is working. It has a 10m power supply cable and can even pump water of temperatures up to 75° over a short period.
The Chairman of Marchington Parish Council, Staffordshire, who sanctioned the purchase, believes that anyone responsible for housing in areas that are prone to flooding should consider a similar plan;
“We are keen to help our residents protect their homes in the event of a future flood. The technical team at Saniflo was able to talk us through the options and the steel version suited our needs for now. Longer term we’d like to purchase additional units that we can loan to the owners of the particularly vulnerable houses in the village so that they can be pre-deployed when a flood warning comes in. The pump can be automatically activated thanks to an adjustable float so incoming excess rainwater could be pre-empted to help protect from flood damage.”
Ann Boardman, Head of Marketing and Product Management at Saniflo, is confident that new range of water salvage pumps from Saniflo would also provide a solution for Housing Association providers in waterlogged areas; “Any organisation managing properties in flood-risk areas may wish to adopt a similar, quickly actionable strategy of this small parish council. These cost-effective pumps could help to minimise flood damage to homes; saving hassle and cost for the homeowner”.

Education and Student Accommodation Feature
Bathrooms in student accommodation vary greatly depending on the age of the building. In many of the newer student blocks ‘en-suites’ can be tiny, plastic lined pods with a shower in the corner and a WC and sink in close proximity. The space amounts to not much more than a typical shower enclosure, yet students seem to manage admirably. Communal bathrooms in these properties tend to enjoy greater space with bigger showers, but the trade-off here is a lack of privacy.
Older buildings tend to feature larger bathrooms with stand-a-lone shower enclosures with tiles or wet panels. After prolonged use and lack of cleaning, these can often look grimy.
Medway Universities recently struck a balance by using a cubicle from the Kinedo range by Saniflo in their brand new 63-bedroom accommodation block. The property manager, JG Lettings, wanted a shower that was easy to install, durable and easy to replace. The Kineprime integrated shower cubicle added a modern, stylish finish to a small en-suite and offered a larger showering area distinct from the basin and WC. The unit consists of internal glass panels that sit over the pre-formed upstand of a shower tray to ensure all water runs inside the shower; providing a watertight finish and leak-free environment with no need for silicone. Clear glass external panels feature Crystal Plus coating to eliminate limescale build-up and ensure easy cleaning – ideal for the student community. The exposed valve and showerhead are provided as part of the package.
The Kineprime cubicle can be installed in just a few hours. The glass panels save the installation time of tiles and grout and are very appealing aesthetically.
Ben Gower at JG Student Lets is delighted with the result;
“The new style cubicles we are using look great, but more importantly they have to stand up to heavy usage from students. It’s early days, but we believe these units will stand the test of time and will stay looking pristine thanks to the coating on the glass and the ease of cleaning.”
Other products in the range that have been used in student accommodations include the Consort and the Eden cubicles. More information can be found at www.kinedo.co.uk
