With its versatile range, WALTER offers a large selection of helpful products in such difficult situations.
First of all, it should be defined what exactly is needed to compensate for the individual failures:
A power generator turns out to be the most versatile device. It helps not only with warmth and light, but also with communication, since naturally also devices such as radios or cell phones can be charged.
WALTER directly carries two different powerful models in its assortment. The models from WALTER are both petrol-powered, so they are also perfect for working in remote places around the house and garden!
Matching a petrol-powered generator is of course a jerry can. Petrol is necessary in an emergency situation. Petrol should be available not only for the generator, but also for the car, so that in an emergency people can be supplied as quickly as possible. WALTER offers some handy sets.
Another necessary helper, which is versatile, is the WALTER gas heater with piezo ignition. Gas is also more storable compared to petrol. This handy equipment helps not only in the Blackout situation, but can also extend your summer or autumn evening.
For everyone who needs more power a professional fan gas heater is the better option, because it has much more power and can thus also quickly warm up bigger tents or workshops.
But beware, gas and petrol devices should not be operated in closed rooms without air circulation!!!
An electricity-powered alternative would be, for example, the halogen space heater. It is particularly flexible thanks to its rollers and also offers an integrated table. With it, even in unpleasant situations, exuberant evenings are pre-programmed both indoors and outdoors. And during winter it is perfect for a cozy wine evening in your own garden.
warmth is the key !
With WALTER pumps against floods
WALTER offers a versatile and high-quality range of pumps that can be used all year round and can quickly provide help in emergency situations.
Probably the most suitable helper is the practical WALTER 750 W waste and clear water pump. This 2-in-1 device has a remarkable delivery height of nine metres and can pump more than 16,000 litres per hour! It is not only perfect for pumping out cellars, but can also be perfectly integrated into everyday DIY work. For example, it can be used to empty a pool or pond within a short time.
Once the cellar is empty, it probably needs to be cleared from a lot of mud and other dirt. This should be done as soon as possible to prevent the dirt from settling or drying.
An ideal companion against dirt are the WALTER high-pressure cleaners. The intensity of its jet can be adjusted as desired.
Attention! To avoid damaging walls and other things, the pressure should not be set too high.
water march !
To ensure that the water reaches the right place quickly, a hose reel cart or a hose reel is suited best. Hose reels can be mounted on the wall and rewind automatically with a quick pull, so that annoying rolling up and knotting of hoses is a thing of the past.
A hose trolley is usually a little more flexible in its usage, as it can be moved easily thanks to its rollers. This makes it easy and effortless to move to different water connections.
WALTER products combine useful features in everyday life and top performance in exceptional situations.
