Spares and Repairs for a Rotorflush Omnia Filterpump

Dear Chris and Jim,

Just a quick note to say ‘thank you’ for the quick turn-around repair of our pump. We installed it early yesterday morning – with great ease, now better understanding the pump thanks to you – and it has worked as designed very well so far. I know for you it is probably a relatively small order, but to us, it was a really big deal. We appreciate not only your prompt assistance, but also the empathy in which you dealt with this matter.

With kindest regards.

A Domestic Open Loop Heat Pump Installation

Filtering and pumping river water to a heat pump system.


I contacted the team at Rotorflush Filters Ltd as I was looking for a submersible pump that would work well alongside my open loop heat pump systems.  Simple, reliable filtration was a prerequisite to it working and the self-cleaning filterpump suited the application perfectly.

The sales and technical team were happy to discuss my requirements and recommended the Omnia O35012-16MA fitted with a 50 micron mesh. All communication was efficient and I was updated at each step of my order, the team worked hard to expedite delivery and made a custom tweak to the cable to assist with the application.

As a consequence, the installation was easy and I am very pleased with how it is working, thank you to all at Rotorflush Filters.

Rotorflush RF200R trial, March 2016, Redcliffe Sewage Treatment Plant, Queensland

Trility Water treatment servicesOur Australian Distributors, Glacier Filtration, have sent a testimonial with photos from TRILITY Pty Ltd.

Alice Connell of Trility says: “A Rotorflush RF200R self-cleaning inlet screen was installed on the intake of the feed pump to test the performance of the screen in a raw sewage application.
Over the two month trial period the screen operated successfully with no blockages or interruptions in flow. The screen was checked and washed down daily during the first month, reducing to every second day in the second month.”

“TRILITY have been very impressed with the performance of the unit as a cost effective alternative to inline screening or filtering processes.”

Laleham Farm, Shepperton

WhereRtheyMe doing pratchett impression in sweetcorn 2010We still have, working as well now as when they were supplied, (albeit with new rubbery bits), our two original RF200’s purchased as a result of seeing the Farmers Weekly review in 1997 (which I’ve still got!).

I’m probably going to regret saying this, but since they were installed, the frequent seal changing exercise on the recirculating pumps serving the vegetable washers has abated to every few years, in fact I can’t remember the last time they were changed.

I also bought, I think, an O35012-16 a few years ago for our cesspit at the other farm, which requires only an annual exterior spruce up, saves us over a grand a year in emptying charges, and is a splendid bit of kit.

I would now like a price please, I think the right size would be an auto O25010-16, delivered to the above address. It’s to dewater a small septic tank serving two caravans housing seasonal staff, i.e. showers, loos and a washing machine. We have used “throwaway” cheap & cheerful submersibles in recent years, but they barely last a season.

And, incidentally, great website, quick and informative.

Ferrierlogo“We are very happy to recommend Rotorflush’s filter pumps. Two installations which our company undertook come particularly to mind. The first, a fountain water feature in Galashiels town centre, repeatedly stopped flowing due to falling leaves choking the filter. The cost of sending someone to clean this once or twice a week was expensive. We fitted a Rotorflush filter pump unit over a year ago and the problem immediately disappeared. The unit requires negligible maintenance and the client was delighted with the remedy.

The second case concerns an installation in a glass factory where a re-circulating water spray system is used to cool the molten glass during production. The filter and spray nozzles were daily becoming blocked with particles of glass and scale. The process environment is extremely hot and hostile, nonetheless we decided to fit a Rotorflush filter to the existing pump and as a result, production now proceeds without interruption. “.

This company is a major supplier and installer of irrigation equipment ” We have used the filter pump range on a number of our installations where water source quality was likely to be a problem eg: rivers, ponds, rainwater harvesting. The pumps have performed the task and provided a simple solution to what may have been an expensive and complicated alternative. We have found Rotorflush an excellent Company to deal with, both on the sales and technical side. “.

“A major water company needed to provide a means for spray cleaning its first stage sewage separation screens. Potable water could not be used in such an applications because of the danger of cross supply contamination and excessive cost, so we had to arrange for a suitably filtered continuous supply from the treatment works’ “final effluent” output. While this is suitable for discharging into the water course, it nevertheless contains enough solid particles to require a normal filtration system to be cleaned at frequent intervals. We therefore specified a Rotorflush Filter-pump which continuously cleans its own filter without the need for manual intervention. Initially, the customer specified water pressure turned out to be more than necessary for the job, but Rotorflush responded very efficiently by quickly modifying and returning the unit, which has since functioned perfectly with minimal attention.”

“As horticultural consultants, Dove Associates advise and specify irrigation equipment for horticultural growers throughout the UK. We specify Rotorflush filter-pumps for applications where water is drawn from rivers or other heavily contaminated sources. The beauty of Rotorflush’s filter-pump is that the contaminant is continuously removed from the irrigation supply at source, and you have no backwash downtime or contaminant to deal with.”

John Adlam, Managing Director Dove Associates

“At Ringway Infrastructure Services, we run a fleet of “Three in One” highway gully cleansing vehicles for our work with Kent County Council. In order to minimise our fresh water usage costs, a rainwater harvesting system was installed at our new, Super Depot in Ashford. This channels rainwater from all roof and ground level surfaces into three tanks, and a Rotorflush Filter-pump is employed to remove leaves and general surface debris, ensuring the water is suitable for use on the gulley cleansing vehicles.

The filtered water is also used to top-up the tanks of other utility vehicles which use the tipper bay at the super depot. In two years of operation, the collection tanks have never been empty and the self-cleaning filter-pump has required virtually zero maintenance, further contributing to the considerable cost-savings being made by the rainwater harvesting operation. “.

Ray Barnes, Site Agent. Ringway Infrastructure Services


“The Rotorflush Filter-pumps are a simple and cost effective way to provide protection of the pump from weed and debris. They eliminated the need for complicated and expensive upstream self-cleaning filters and have proved reliable and maintenance free even though we have one installed in a particularly dirty part of a lake.

The Rotorflush Filter-pump is an ideal solution for extracting a filtered sample for our analyser. There can often be weed and other detritus in the final effluent channel that would block a wastewater pump. The 50 micron self-cleaning inlet screen provided on the submersible pump not only protects the pump from blockage but provides a filtered sample with no requirement for cleaning of conventional filters”

Geoff Wood, Managing Director, Water Designs Ltd

This is a company in UK that designs and installs irrigation systems.

A company that manufactures analysers in the UK has been using Rotorflush's Filter-pumps to continuously feed his analyser cells on sewage works.

“We installed a Rotorflush Filter-pump (Model RF400R) over four years ago and it’s never had a problem, or a service since. Delivery was bang-on the delivery date given. We can’t fault it. Rotorflush have always given us the data we need whenever we asked – their service is first rate. “

Brian Offord, Owner Hemtune Agricultural Services

“We used to have a surface mounted centrifugal pump with a coarse strainer in the tank. It was a nightmare, the strainer would block up and we were continually stripping the pump down to clean the impellers that were blocked with cow hair. The maintenance on the old system was bad enough when I was there to do it, but when I was away from the farm the relief staff couldn’t cope resulting in an even worse problem when I returned. The Rotorflush pump has been brilliant, it just keeps going; I haven’t had to touch it, the irrigator nozzle in the field stays free from blockage as well.”

Steve, Leicestershire Dairy Farmer

The pumps are being used on farms for the irrigation of wastewater from livestock units heavily contaminated with manure, straw and silage. This is a particularly demanding application. The water is pumped from collection tanks to irrigators in the field. Progressive cavity pumps have often been used for this, they will pump the solids usually without problem but irrigators and sometimes even the pipeline to the field become blocked. The self-cleaning inlet filter protects the pump pipeline and irrigator from the suspended solids.
