Swimming Pool Circulation Pump Replacement at Felixstowe Leisure Centre


Our client Felixstowe Leisure are a well known award winning leisure centre based in Felixstowe Suffolk and part of the Places for People Leisure group that manage leisure centres on behalf of Local Authority partners, which provide affordable activities so that we can all enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  


We look after all the pumping and water treatment requirements for Felixstowe Leisure, Deben Pools and Leiston Leisure Centre.


We were contacted by our client at Felixstowe Leisure requesting the repair or replacement of an old Girdlestone 11kW pool circulation pump.  Girdlestone were a well known Woodbridge, Suffolk based company that manufactured quality cast iron pumps mainly for industrial applications.  Unfortunately spares for the Girdlestone pump were no longer available and the pump was obsolete, therefore, we had no other option but to replace the pump with a new Amarinth UA150 cast iron close coupled pump that would fit directly into place.  The Replacement Girdlestone Pump ECP GroupAmarinth pump being physically identical in both size and performance, meant that no pipework alterations would be required.  The only draw back being the 13 week delivery period.


Amarinth manufacture pumps for industrial, chemical and petrochemical applications.  All pumps are engineered to order hence the 13 week delivery period.  They can be customised to suite so that they fit precisely to your requirements, which is why we would strongly advise utilising our services to ensure that the pump will fit with your needs.  Providing incorrect details can be a costly mistake to make.  


Once the pump had arrived, we went to site, extracted the old Girdlestone pump and slotted the new Amarinth unit in place.  


Our client is extremely pleased as when the other remaining two pump need replacement ordering should be a simple process.


If you have a requirement for the repair or replacement of any type of pumping equipment then please contact us for further details and assistance.
