Government & Education

Government, educational and other public sector facilities, there is no room for downtime. But with budgets constantly stretched, negligence of vital systems such as pumping equipment can occur, leading to system failure and expensive remedial work. 

At Mawdsleys Pumps, we’ve been working with public sector establishment including schools, colleges, universities, council building, Government agencies and more for years and recognise the need for a pump specialist that can provide a professional, cost-effective and proactive service to fulfil all pumping requirements.

We offer an all-encompassing service, from design and supply to installation and ongoing repairs maintenance, with a 24/7 365 emergency callout service to ensure any problems are dealt with efficiently.

The Cost of Downtime in Government and Educational Facilities

Beyond the cost of any repairs, replacements or upgrades to the system, there are other costs that come with downtime to be considered:

Pump Servicing and Repairs

Regular servicing of pumps within any environment is essential to ensure they operate as expected.

As well as carrying out regular in-house inspections to asses the current health of your pump, any Government or educational building should have a specialist pumping company to inspect the system and carry out essential maintenance, servicing and repairs; the frequency of which these inspections are recommended will depend on the set up and type of pump your building relies on.

At Mawdsleys Pumps, we offer a robust pump maintenance service including inspections, repairs, refurbishments and overhauls for all makes and models of pumps. We have a fully equipped mechanical and electrical workshop on-site which repairs and overhauls pumps by a procedure approved by the UK ministry of defence.

Booster Pump Installation and Maintenance

Booster pumps are required in environments where water pressure is not high enough to deliver an adequate supply of water to multiple storeys. Mawdsleys Pumps offers a comprehensive range of booster pumps from leading manufacturers designed to boost water pressure in educational and Government facilities. 

When booster pumps that are in place fail, the result can be a complete closure of the building – with essential facilities such as bathrooms and kitchens rendered unusable.

Storm Water and Flood Control

When bad weather strikes, Government and educational facilities need to ensure they can stay open as long as is safely possible. A storm water pump is an industrial measure to prevent the build up of water in your premises. 

At Mawdsleys Pumps, we’ve worked with public sector bodies such as Bristol City Council and the Highways Agency, providing them with robust de-watering solutions to ensure they can still operate at critical times. 

In scenarios where contingency plans for flood control are of a reactive nature, or where budget is too restricted to invest in a storm water pump – a flood pump is a cost effective and easy to use method of pumping out floodwater.

Sewage Pumps

Sewage pumping systems play a critical role in the day to day operation of any Government or Educational facility – ensuring that all hygiene facilities are fully operational and pleasant for building users.

When sewage pumps fail, the results can include toilets backing up, bad smells throughout the building and the closure of any hygiene facilities – something that will often require the building to be temporarily shut down whilst work is carried out.

At Mawdsleys Pumps, we can supply, install, maintain and carry out emergency repairs on all leading makes and models of sewage pumps to ensure the risk of any pump failure is reduced.

Mawdsleys have serviced our pumps in a number of our Public Toilets over many years." "They have always carried out their work professionally and to a high standard. In situations where we have had to call them out in an emergency they have always reacted quickly and kept us well informed of the situation.

Bristol City Council

We have been using Mawdsleys for at least six years and I’ve personally been involved with them since Nov 2014. As pump specialists they have been very responsive and flexible with arranging repairs at short notice for our subway tunnels and pumping stations. Their engineers have always been very helpful when meeting on site and we have a very good rapport with their area sales manager.

We have benefited from their professional advice and consultation on several large schemes and Mawdsleys currently service and maintain all of our highway structure pump assets. Mawdsleys provide us with fast response times on emergency call outs and give the SGC Structure Team peace of mind and confidence our assets remain operational.
