Grafton expands Aura pump offering

Published:  30 March, 2010

OXFORD: Grafton Merchanting GB, which includes Plumbase, Plumbline, Jackson and Buildbase, has updated its Aura own-brand shower pump range.

The new range of 1.5-bar and 2.0-bar twin pumps are now exclusively manufactured for the Aura brand by manufacturer Stuart Turner. They are being supplied with a two-year warranty.

Aura pumps are 'competitively priced' said Grafton and, more importantly, are available from stock at all branches of Plumbase, Plumbline, Jackson and Buildbase.

Mark Curtis, category manager for Plumbase, commented: “The pumps were introduced in January and are already proving to be extremely popular with our customers who welcome the benefits of a competitively priced product that is held in stock."

The Aura pumps have been designed to be simple to install and quiet in operation, making them attractive to both installers and end-users, Mr Curtis explained.

Classified as ‘Quiet Operation’ (60dB[A]) – typical noise level produced at 1m head), anti-vibration feet are included in the design to reduce noise transmission further.

The pump features a flexible 15mm by 200mm, push-in anti-vibration hoses with ¾ BSP threaded connection.

It also features automatic switching, which starts the pump when flow exceeds 0.8 litres/minute. The carbon /ceramic shaft seal adds to the durability and quality of the pump that is WRAS Approved and CE-compliant.
