Rapid Response Pump

Rapid Response pump: leading the industry, then and now

It’s been almost six years since we first launched our revered Rapid Response pump – and it’s still as popular as ever among our customers.

Simple in both its design and concept, the unit’s primary advantage is the fact that it can legally be towed by small vans and medium-sized vehicles in the event of an emergency.

There is no need for a dedicated delivery lorry, no need for an expert engineer to oversee installation, and no need for any specialist training.

Although small in size, our Rapid Response model can pump up to 130,000 litres of water for every hour of operation, with a self-priming feature allowing it to be up and running within seconds of arriving on site.

The unit can be attached, delivered and set up by a single operative, simplifying the whole process between transportation and installation.
