ATAC Solutions, one of the UK’s leading wastewater solutions and wastewater management companies, has appointed Nigel Palmer as Head of Process Engineering.
The sun may be shining but it’s a fair assumption that there is a flood coming. Over the past few years flooding has become one of the UK’s hottest environmental topics. For many years, winter brings the misery of damage to homes and businesses, lengthy clean ups and the uncertainty of when, or if, it will all happen again. The question is: why does this keep happening and what can be done?
In this post we will help you choose the recommended replacements for the Wilo Top- S, Top-SD and the Myson SE Circulator range. We can always help you further if you require, just give us a ring on 01622 882400 and we will be happy to speak to you.
To replace your existing Top-S or Top-SD pump there are two options; If you have an old Wilo Top- S or (SD) pump the replacement for this is the Wilo Stratos or Stratos D range – a Premium high- efficiency pump which can be linked to a building management system. For example, if you have Top-S 40/10 the high efficiency direct replacement will be Wilo Stratos 40/1-10.
If you have an old Wilo Top- S pump which is not linked to a building management system the replacement for this is the Wilo Yonos Maxo or Maxo D range – a Standard high- efficiency pump. For example, if you have a Top-S 30/10 the direct replacement will be Wilo Yonos Maxo 30//0.5-10.
We also have several enquiries for the Wilo Myson SE Range, this can be replaced with the Yonos Maxo range. For example, if you have the Myson SE125 the direct replacement will be the Yonos Maxo 25/0.5-7 no spacer kit needed. If you have the Myson SE150 the replacement will be Yonos Maxo 40/0.5-4 and you will need a 24mm spacer kit.

Flood Damage Insurance
It is highly advisable to set up flood damage insurance if you are in a risk area. Be aware some companies my not cover all the costs for damages caused by flooding, but it certainly gives peace of mind.
Strengthen vulnerable areas, doors and windows are the main areas that needs to be protected. Flood boards are a popular option with many people as well as sandbags. If you have a property that suffers from regular flooding sandbags are only a temporary measure! Installation of sewer non-return valves below ground can protect your property against sewage and grey water backing up to your toilets and sinks. These methods are a lot easier than people first think! contact us today for some help.
Good insulation is also the first step towards preventing freezing / burst pipes. It can also be worth opening up cabinets that conceal pipes, as well as your loft hatch, to allow warm air to reach your plumbing. Keep your heating on to at least 15 degrees centigrade for a little while each day to prevent the pipes from freezing and bursting.
