Inspector Pumphead’s Buyers Guides: Goulds WS_D4 Series Sewage Pumps


The Goulds WS_D4 sewage pumps are sewage pumps designed to be used in conjunction with a guide rail system (A10-30/ A10-30B) or a base elbow disconnect system with 125# ANSI system flanges for horizontal discharge. Each of these pumps can handle up to 3” maximum waste solids. These pumps are ideal for general sewage systems, flood and pollution control, farms, hospitals, trailer courts and motels. General dewatering and effluent applications can also use this pump. These Goulds series pumps are used at a variety of application levels, including residential, commercial or industrial levels. This series is similar its cousin the Goulds WS_D3 series, except that the WS_D4 series can handle larger diameter waste solids.

Each pump volute is made of heavy duty cast iron, while the shaft and fasteners are 300 series stainless steel. While these pumps are capable of running dry intermittently they perform best while continuously submerged. The motor includes built-in thermal overloads with automatic reset and a built-in capacitor. Dual silicon carbide vs. silicon carbide seal faces, BUNA-N elastomers and an O-Ring ensure protection against leaks and contaminants. All in all, this is a well constructed and versatile sewage pump.

Inspector Pumphead’s Buyers Guide: Goulds Series RGS2012 Grinder Pumps



Goulds RGS2012 series submersible grinder pumps are specifically designed for high head sewage applications where installing a gravity system is not practical. They are ideal for grinding in pressure sewage applications. The cutting system is a unique anti-roping design with a two blade rotary cutter threaded to the shaft. The stationary cutter ring is reversible allowing you to extend the service life. Both the rotater and ring are made with 440 C hardened stainless steel to handle the toughest waste solids.

The pump casing itself is rugged cast iron and can be adapted to fit with the proper guide rail system. The motor shaft is 300 series stainless steel. The pump and motor are designed for continuous operation when fully submerged. The main difference among the models listed here is the type of power cord included with each; some have bare leads for use in connection with a control panel or junction box while other have three prong grounding plugs. All models are single phase.

Inspector Pumphead Comes Alive

Inspector Pumphead steps to the mic

1969: Man walks on the moon. 1971: man walks on the moon… uh, again. Then for a long time, nothing happened. Until now. Get ready for a seminal moment in American history, one that you will remember for the rest of your life. 

I’ve been through a lot of crazy adventures in my life as Inspector Pumphead. Therefore, there have been so many seminal moments… 

In 1968, I argued before the U.S. Supreme Court that not allowing my company to transport pumps across state lines was an illegal restraint of trade – and I won, thus changing the face of pump distribution forever. I am the man who introduced the booster pump to Japan, the chemical resistant pump to Bolivia and the concept of indoor plumbing to Antarctica. I remain an editor-at-large for the International Pump Review of Books where I have championed such critically acclaimed works as The Piping CorrectionsThe Sound and the Fury (of Your Plumbing System) and A Portrait of the Plumber as a Young Man.

Along with some of my friends from other countries, I helped found the International Plumbing Games™, which is now one of the most popular athletic events in the world and draws in over a billion television viewers every four years.

It’s been quite a wild ride and I treasure every memory. Still, before now, I have always preferred to maintain the veil of mystery. I usually let my trained disciples, the Application Engineers, speak to you. Until NOW!

That’s right, I, Inspector Pumphead speaks!

This is a moment that will be long remembered in American history. Why break my silence now? With Pump Products expanding at an exponential rate, I decided now was the perfect time to interact more fully with our customers. We have the momentum of a runaway freight train and we don’t plan on stopping.

To get it started, this brief video introduces our top six brands or the “Super 6” as I call them.

Goulds Water Technology, provider of the IRRI-GATOR pump as well as a wide variety of other pump types. Also known for the 2″ submersible well pumps.

Zoeller, the makers of the Mighty Mate and the Aquamate.

Liberty, probably best known for the Omnivore series grinder pumps.

Berkeley, known for delivering years of trouble free, efficient operation in the most challenging water transfer projects and residential water applications.

Myers, offers top quality sewage pumps designed for various applications.

Sta-Rite, manufactures some of the best selling centrifugal pumps.

These great brands are well known throughout the pump industry for reliability, precision engineering and performance. Responsive customer service is also important to all of our manufacturing partners, as well as to Pump Products. I’ll be doing more videos soon. That’s the Pumphead way. Strap yourself in and get ready for the ride.

Inspector Pumphead’s Classroom: Graywater vs. Sewage Water

Inspector Pumphead is lecturing on wastewater

Welcome to Inspector Pumphead’s Classroom! In this series, I will discuss various aspects of pumps, pumping technology and the pump industry. I’m here to school you on pumps. So pull up a chair, open up your notebook and grab a pen – it’s time for class!

Wastewater

Graywater or effluent is “used” water that does not touch any urine or fecal matter. Most of the water fixtures in your home will produce graywater. Sinks, washing machines, laundry discharge, shower water – all of that is considered graywater. Different pump types are capable of handling graywater and the solids therein; in a general sense, effluent pumps, sump pumps and dewatering pumps are capable of handling graywater. While we always recommend that you purchase a pump matched specifically to your application, there is some crossover. A good example is the Zoeller 53-0001 Mighty Mate which is listed as an effluent pump but can also be used for general dewatering applications.

A good rule of thumb to remember is that effluent pumps are capable of handling up to ¾” solids.  This is good because things such as soap scum, oil, grease, laundry detergent residue and other particulates often accumulate in the wide variety of water fixtures that produce graywater.

Sewage, by contrast is typically only produced in toilets, at least at the residential level. Sewage is defined as any used water which is touched by human waste like urine and fecal matter. Unlike graywater, which is recycled through usable systems, sewage water is exported for treatment. This exported sewage can go to either a septic tank or a city sewer line. 

As would be expected, you need a sewage pump to pump sewage out of your home or building if you do not have a gravity line. Sewage pumps are built to handle and transport 2” diameter waste solids. Grinder pumps are a subcategory of sewage pumps equipped with a cutting system that chops waste solids into a fine slurry for higher head export. Unlike the crossover effect with effluent pumps,sewage and grinder pumps should really only be used for sewage water.

So if you didn’t know before, you now know the difference between graywater and sewage water and what type of pump you need for each. Knowing is half the battle – that’s the promise of Inspector Pumphead’s classroom baby!

Inspector Pumphead Previews the British Open!

Inspector Pumphead’s got a powerful drive!

It’s time for golf’s British Open! Held at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England, this major tournament is steeped in history and tradition. In addition to being the oldest of the Majors, it is also the only one of the major championships to be held outside of the United States. The British Open is also often called the Open Championship. So, who will win? 

This Open is typically known for producing windy conditions. High rise dunes at the Birkdale course will also be challenging. The conditions suggest that aggressive golfers who can take advantage of the high winds and slow greens can actually benefit. Historically, older golfers have had much success and outperformed expectations at the Open.

For now, however, the odds makers are favoring two youngsters, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy. They are two of the most dominant golfers of the past few years, however both are coming off of U.S. Open disappointments when they (and others) made headlines for missing the cut. It will be interesting to see how they respond to the adversity.  In golf, the mental setbacks are often more challenging than the physical ones.

Burgeoning superstar Jordan Spieth has also emerged from his recent struggles and is the third favorite to take the Open. Spieth is one of the most popular younger players on the tour and comes armed with a boatload of endorsements to boot. It will be interesting to contrast his performance with those of Johnson and McIlroy.

As mentioned above, older players generally find some success at this particular tournament, so it won’t just be the young guns making noise. Sergio Garcia is still riding the emotional wave from his breakthrough Masters win. Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Adam Scott are… still around. And after missing out on the past few Majors, fan favorite Phil Mickelson is back to compete. All in all, it should be a wild and fun tournament.

Inspector Pumphead’s Quick Tips: Pullout Design for Goulds Irrigator Pumps

Inspector Pumphead has a tip for you!

Here’s another edition of everyone’s favorite sem-recurring content feature: Inspector Pumphead’s Quick Tips!

In this space, I, Inspector Pumphead from Pump Products, will be sending out friendly reminders and dispensing basic tips for ordering, maintaining and servicing pumps. The Inspector is in and here to help!

Tip: Pumps with a back pullout design are easier to clean, service and repair.

You may have noticed that some of our centrifugal pumps, such as the Goulds IRRI-GATOR, are listed as having a “back pullout” or “pullout design.” This simply means that the rotating assembly of the pump can be pulled out of the volute or pump casing without disturbing the piping. As noted above, this makes cleaning those areas of the pump (including parts such as bearings, shaft seals, etc.) much easier. Quick disassembly can also be beneficial if you need to perform any maintenance. This can save you a lot of time, money and headaches.

Inspector Pumphead’s Quick Tips: Save on Insurance with A Backup Sump Pump

Inspector Pumphead has some advice

Welcome back to everyone’s favorite semi-recurring content feature: Inspector Pumphead’s Quick Tips!

In this space, Inspector Pumphead from Pump Products will be sending out friendly reminders and dispensing basic tips for pump handling and maintenance.  The Inspector is in and here to help!

Tip: A backup sump pump could earn you a discount on your insurance.

If you are a homeowner, you probably know that standard homeowners’ insurance does not cover a flooded basement, nor does flood insurance. Naturally, this can cause quite the headache for those of us who live in flood-prone areas, especially during certain seasons. Unfortunately, many people assume they are covered until the flooding actually happens and then they have to deal with a reticent insurance company.

If you own a sump pump, however, there is a specific rider that could help: the “Back Up of Sewer, Drain and Sump Pump Coverage” rider or HO-208. This specific rider could potentially cover damage up to $10,000 if a sump pump does not activate due to power failure. Some insurance companies even offer discounts if you have a battery backup sump pump!

Of course, the ability to obtain a discount will be dependent on your insurance company and its policies.  Even if you can’t get a discount, a battery backup sump pump might well be worth the cost. Consider the stuff you have in your basement – furniture, electronics, old family heirlooms – and the relative value of all that stuff. We have heard stories of people having $30,000 worth of stuff in their basement and having it damaged due to flooding. A backup sump pump is a bargain in comparison.
