The All Pumps team just got a little bit cooler
There are plenty of jokes about what goes on around the office water cooler, but it’s what happens inside your water cooler that Bruce Jordaan is concerned with.
Bruce is a new recruit at All Pumps, having taken up his role as Pump Technician in November. His area of expertise is water cooler maintenance and servicing – a new service offered by All Pumps to which Bruce brings a wealth of experience.
An Armature Winder by trade, Bruce worked for 27 years with Durban City Council in the electrical department – first as an Electrician, working his way up to Foreman then Manager of the electrical workshop.
After leaving South Africa, he spent five years in Western Australia with Transfield Services, and three years ago, he moved to New Zealand to be closer to his daughter and her family, taking on contracts with North Power in Wellington and Transfield Services in Auckland.
His current role involves calling on customers and ensuring their water coolers are not only cleaned to the highest standard, but that filters are changed in accordance with manufacturer recommendations – so the quality of water is as it should be – every time.

“I’ve done such a variety of work, so basically this new job feels like it’s second nature,” says Bruce.
His wife Gaye is also part of the All Pumps family, and she may well be the friendly voice on the end ofthe phone the next time you call the office.
Outside of work Bruce says he loves fishing, scuba diving and any beach related activities. He’s also a keen motorcycle rider so there’s no shortage of things to keep him busy in his spare time.
Tip from the field: Don’t leave your water coolers in the sun! If you have a bottle cooler, excessive exposure to sunlight in an office area can cause algae growth inside the bottle, which may not be visible to the eye.
