Subject: 3 new and 13 OLD pumps inside the boiler house on the Curnock Estate
Dear Mr Khan,
Thank you for your email regarding the information about the 3 new and 13 OLD pumps inside the boiler house on the Curnock Estate.
Could you please clarify the following:
1) How old are the old pumps? If the name plates of the pumps are corroded/damaged then shall we assume that the pumps are very old? According to Mr Tony Bowcut (during the previous major works) some of those old primary pumps are very old. Please confirm.
2) Please state the life expectancy of the old pumps.
3) Since there will be more pumps (16 in total) what will be the noise levels inside and outside the boiler house?
4) What measures will you take to make sure that there will be NO NOISE on the flats above?
5) Please provide the name of the people who decided which equipment has to change and which equipment has to stay in place.
6) Please provide the criteria for their decision to keep the old pumps.
7) Please explain why residents during the meeting with the contractors were given the impression that all pumps will be replaced and that the pumps will have a 5 years life expectancy.
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
