Choosing the Correct Pump for Your Needs
Water pumps are designed for one primary purpose: to move water and other types of fluid. When shopping for a water pump, there are various specifications to consider. All water pumps are measured in discharge capacity (GPM), vertical suction lift, and maximum head lift.
GPM Discharge Capacity is the rate of speed that water flows from the source to the discharge point, measured in gallons per minute. It provides the power to move water quickly.
Vertical Suction Lift is the vertical distance from the water source to the pump. This is important for draining a basement or deep pond.
Maximum Head Lift is the total height from the source of the water to the destination or drainage point. This provides the power to move water over a distance.
Types of Water Pumps
Transfer Pumps are ideal for draining a pool, hot tub, or garden pond. In addition, they can be used to drain shallow flooded areas and for lawn sprinkling. These types of pumps are made for clear water pumping and should be free of debris; although they can handle small solids up to 1/4“.
Trash Pumps are able to pass solids from 3/4” to 2” and are used for commercial and agricultural jobs. They are typically used for irrigation, to drain small flooded areas, or are utilized on a construction site.
High Pressure Pumps are designed to provide higher pressure at lower volumes. This makes them ideal for agricultural needs due to their ability to move water over long distances.
Chemical Pumps are designed to transport various chemicals or water with hazardous materials. These pumps feature internal coatings that protect their components and allow them to transport the chemicals without any damage.
