Jacuzzi pump in for repair - 21 years after we supplied it!

The Gibbons workshop got a blast from the past this week when a Jacuzzi pump came in for repair – as it was supplied by our own Fans division over 21 years ago!

On 28th January 1993, while Whitney Houston was top of the singles chart with ‘I Will Always Love You’, the pump was being carefully assembled and tested at our Tollesbury premises. Since then it’s reliably powered our customer’s Jacuzzi for more than two decades before recently developing a fault.

Upon inspection, the customer saw that the pump still had its original tag and decided that there was no-one better to repair it than the company that had supplied it. They brought it back to us and it’s now back in excellent working order thanks to our skilled engineers. Our customer certainly felt that they’d got their money’s worth from the pump, so here’s to the next 21 years!

If 21 years doesn’t seem that long, here’s a few other things that were happening in January 1993 to put it in perspective (and make many of us feel old!):

  • Norwich City topped the Premier League
  • The average house price was £68,032
  • A litre of petrol cost 50p
  • Zayn Malik of boy band One Direction was born.
