What precautions contingencies do people have for possible power cuts that may be coming.

Anyone have battery backup air pumps etc?

Any ideas?

Hi Tony
During our recent heat wave on the hottest day ever we had a power cut as you can imagine I was in complete panic mode , the power was off for 3-4 hours in the poly tunnel the temperature was 46 degrees
Luckily enough I got my old generator enough to run all my air pumps to all the ponds
I am now looking for a new generator that’s powerful enough to run all the pumps etc on all systems
All the fish are fine and no problems at all but was a massive wake up call !!
Things could have been very very different if I hadn’t had the old generator at hand
Could only happen to me on the hottest day ever !!
This was an experience I wouldn’t want anyone to go through so be prepared, an adequate second hand generator can be picked up for around £100-£200 or even a new one for that price ?
Small price to pay for piece of mind

Glad to hear that no harm was done during your 3 to 4 hour power cut Baz.

Think a generator is probably the number one piece of kit that we all need to have in preparation for what is surely coming as far as power cuts go.

Any other tips anyone?
