Water Pumps & Sump Pumps
Pumps see usage for a variety of purposes. Among these are irrigation, water supply, gasoline supply, air conditioning systems, refrigeration (usually called a compressor), chemical movement, sewage movement, flood control, marine services, etc. Because of the wide variety of applications, pumps have a variety of shapes and sizes. Whatever the case, we can help with almost any pump you need.
Pumps are commonly rated by horsepower, flow rate, outlet pressure in feet (or meters) of head, inlet suction in suction feet (or meters) of head. The head can be simplified as the number of feet or meters the pump can raise or lower a column of water at atmospheric pressure.
Installing, maintaining and servicing pumps can mean the difference between a smooth running system and a mess. Some representative examples of pumps include:
Residential water pumps generally see usage as part of a lawn sprinkler system, consisting of various plumbing parts, piping and control equipment. Piping connects to the water source via plumbing fittings. From there, a control system opens and closes valves to provide water on a schedule. The control provided varies depending on the equipment used; some systems feature full automation and even compensate for rain, runoff and evaporation. However, others require much more user attention for the same effectiveness.
An electric water pump is the primary piece of equipment in re-circulating the water from the pool through a filtering system. It pushes water through a filter in order to remove contaminants before returning it to the pool. Residential pool pumps usually run for 4 to 24 hours a day depending on the season. Generally, they work longer during seasons where pools actually get common usage.
Sump pumps are use to help prevent basement flooding. They provide protection especially in finished basements that contain recreation rooms, offices and bedrooms. The pump collects excess water and moves it away from your home’s foundation as the water table changes throughout the year. A variety of pumps and sizes are available for purchase. In addition, some include electrical, water, and battery powered back up models for use in areas prone to power outages.
