Vilgertshofen, a municipality in Upper Bavaria with a population of 2600. The community’s drinking water comes from a source in Lechmühlen in the municipality of Fuchstal. It is pumped into the half way up tank near Mundraching and the elevated tank near Issing using energy generated in an environmentally friendly way from water used in hydropower systems. When the drinking water supply was modernised at the end of the 1970s, the people in charge of the project relied on a KD210-KN by URACA. Until the start of this year, the pump had been reliably supplying drinking water to the region for four decades. The pump was sent to our head quarter in Bad Urach for a complete overhaul due to increased leakage. As an interim measure, the KD624 standby pump, which was purchased in 1992, resumed service in place of the KD210-KN.
