Fire pump rental was needed in Wheeling, WV, for a fire suppression systems that was being constructed. Fire suppression systems are commonly used on or around heavy industrial tools and machinery. These systems utilize dry chemicals or wet agents to stop fires that may occur. Before the permanent system was completed at a petrochemical processing plant, a contractor needed to test the waterlines and storage vessels that made up the facility’s fire suppression system. They turned to E-Pump because they needed water from a lake significantly far away from the facility. Because of the distance of the lake a road crossing rental was needed to allow the hose to cross access roads without impeding traffic.

Our dry prime pumps were used to fill the fire suppression system with water from a 1.5 million gallon lake. We also supplied a 6 bag filter rental to prevent any silt from entering and clogging the system. After the system was tested and proved functional, the rental pump and filters stayed on the job to enable hot work, such as welding, to occur with an emergency plan in place if fire breaks out. The reliability of E-Pump’s equipment played a significant role in bringing safety and security to this workplace.
