Husky Corporation’s Recommendations for Hanging Hardware Inspection After a Flood

Husky LogoFuel dispensing equipment that is submerged during a flood can become damaged. After the water has receded, it is important to thoroughly inspect the equipment to make sure it will operate safely. Husky Corporation would like to offer Flooded Pumpsome recommendations.

A fueling site that has equipment that has been partially or entirely submerged should inspect and evaluate their equipment.

Hoses (whip and curb) should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the hose if there is corrosion on the fittings. Replace the hose if there are cracks, delamination, kinks, tears or punctures.

Breakaways and combos should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the breakaway if there is corrosion around where the male is inserted into the sleeve. Mag-Breaks® should be separated and inspected for any corrosion or debris and then reconnected.

Swivels should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the swivel if there is corrosion in or around any of the joints. Replace if the swivel doesn’t rotate freely or the rotation feels gritty.

Nozzles should be replaced if they have been partially or completely submerged. Any that have not been underwater should be cleaned and inspected. If there is debris or damage inside the spout or vent tube opening, the nozzle should be replaced.

Flooded Pump 2-When checking the equipment by flowing fuel, if it is apparent there has been water inside the hose or nozzle, replace all the hanging hardware.

For any equipment that wasn’t replaced, it is recommended to re-evaluate the equipment every month to inspect for any flood related damage or corrosion that may have grown over time.

If you have any further questions or would like to order replacement hanging hardware, call us at 1.800.238.1225 .  You can find many of Husky’s great products along with thousands of others ready to purchase through our online store today!

Our customer service team will work with channel partners on identifying and prioritizing existing and new orders to most efficiently serve this region. While we understand that this may inconvenience customers outside of the storm’s path, we believe without question that this is the most appropriate and necessary way to manage our service and dedication to customers.

A Friendly Reminder For Our Friends in California: Proposition 65 Warning

California and Prop65

Proposition 65, formally titled The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act was passed overwhelming by Californians in 1986 to allow them to make informed choices about their exposure to listed chemicals that may cause cancer and birth defects.

So with that said, several manufacturers have already started placing warnings on those products that contain any of the chemicals listed while others are placing the warning on every product regardless of its chemical composition (a very CYA move and why not in this day and age of constant litigation!).

This process of placing a notice at the product level started after the launch of our eCommerce site when we already had thousands of products listed.  You can see a product detail page from our web store below that shows where you may find the Prop65 Warning:

JWK Prop65 Product Level WarningSo we could get this notice listed quickly on all products, we have a mechanism in our system to provide a link to the CA Prop65 Warning website under the Resources tab towards the bottom of all product detail pages on the johnwkennedyco.com website. We will continue to add the actual warning to product detail pages when that information is made apparent by the manufacturers as to which exact products they sell that fall under Prop65.

Please feel free to visit the CA Prop65 Warning website to learn more about the law and more importantly, which chemicals are listed that could affect you and your family!
