It’s exciting times for the pump control team with the unveiling of a new controller featuring our award-winning technology. Pulsar’s Ultimate Pump Controller integrates Retroflo’s patented pre-blockage detection technology with a range of control features such as level and flow control, pump efficiency and telemetry.

Retroflo are delighted to announce that the company has been named an approved electrical contractor for Northumbrian Water. The approval marks a major landmark in Retroflo’s progression and follows 18 months of preparation and planning to meet NWL’s strict approval criteria.

Following the successful commissioning of the pumps by Retroflo at Pinkston Watersport Centre in Glasgow, the new artificial whitewater courses (AWWC) were tested for the first time last week by local boaters Thom Brown and Mark Mulrain. Both courses run at 7c at maximum flow (3 pumps) with a 1.5m head. The long course is 100m x 10m wide and the short course is 30m x 10m wide. Both courses were tested with two pumps and the results were very positive.

Retroflo Press Release

South Hetton based electrical contractor Retroflo this week announced the 300th order for its free domestic electric vehicle charge point installation service. The service, available to homeowners throughout the north east, offers customers the free supply and installation of a government approved domestic EV charger as part of the UK’s ULEV (Ultra-low Emission Vehicle) strategy.

The strategy, launched in September last year, makes available £37m funding to install free charge points in homes with off-road parking across the UK. Retroflo were approved to install EV charge points in November, and since launching the service the company has created six new staff positions to cope with demand as the response has outstripped original expectations.
