Recommendation for supply/service of household backup generator

Kevin from Martinborough

Can anyone recommend a local business that can supply, and more importantly regularly service, a backup generator for home?
We’re not looking for anything big; probably 3000W+ inverter for the water pump etc when the power goes out.
There’s plenty of generators available for mail order over the internet but I’m keen to get something that can be regularly serviced locally (so that it’s going to work when we really need it).

#White #Island #Speaks and we #Weep

Maree from Carterton District

This is a quote form my book- The Mind Mechanic- that came into my head after hearing of the eruption..
I felt could not be more fitting as we all process this devastation from the eruption of White Island.
"Whatia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe me he maunga teitei"

See the treasures you value most dearly,and if you must bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain".

Aroha to all those who weep today.

Martinborough water supply update

The Team from Wellington Water

Following the fault on Monday with the low manganese bore that is supplying the Martinborough Township, the pump was successfully replaced yesterday.

However this morning the pump experienced an electrical fault, which means there is no water pumping from the bore and reservoir levels are going down. We have our team on site working on a replacement as fast as possible.

The total outdoor water ban is still in place, and the community is encouraged to continue with their water conservation efforts. If the township uses more water than we can supply from the low-manganese bore, we will have to use the other bores as well. That could mean the town’s drinking water becoming discoloured.
