PumpProducts.com President’s Day Sale!


Monday, February 19 is that most patriotic of days (after July 4 and Memorial Day): Presidents’ Day! That’s right, it’s the day where we lump George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and I think some other president together in order to have a convenient Monday holiday. For those of you who have the a paid day off, congratulations. The rest of us are jealous, but even if you have to work, I have the next best thing: pump sales!

That’s right, we’re giving you a discount on all online orders. Specifically, a 5% discount off of any order of $100 or more. Been waiting to buy that new sump pump? How about some repair parts or accessories? Well Monday is the time to get them. Just use the coupon code presidentsday at checkout to apply the discount.

This is a one-day sale, so be prepared once Monday comes. As Abraham Lincoln once said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” What I think that means* is that preparation and awareness of your situation is of the utmost importance; even if you don’t need a backup pump or repair kit right this second, you still want to be prepared for when that day comes. Get those products now, because these President’s Day savings only come once a year.

*(The quote also means that no one messed with Abe back in the day, because it sounds like he was often carrying around and sharpening a big axe).

Happy Valentine’s Day from Pump Products! I sincerely hope you remembered to buy chocolates, flowers or a singing telegram for that special someone in your life!

As for me, I’m alone on this day, as I have been every Valentine’s Day since the former Mrs. Pumphead walked out, taking my son and my dog. I’ll have to settle for joylessly scrolling through Instagram, resenting the over-the-top displays of happiness from smug couples. If that sounds like you, don’t fret! You know what’s better than having a significant other on Valentine’s Day? Having a pump!

In the video above, our pump specialist Lee spends a romantic day of fun and frivolity with a Taco 007 circulator pump! Watch Lee and Taco share deep conversation, enjoy a day at the park and take a nice long walk. What else does one need in life? A pump will never forget your birthday, a pump will never get in a fight with your family and a pump won’t take you for granted.  Most importantly, pumps make sure you get water, which leading scientists now say you need to live. So forget your romance woes and buy a pump.

Pump Products Now Distributing New Grundfos Centrifugal Pumps

Grundfos CM

Pump Products is proud to announce distributorship of several new multistage centrifugal pump lines from Grundfos Pumps: the CM series, the CME Plus series and the CR series. Grundfos is one of our most trusted manufacturing partners and Pump Products has had a long and successful relationship with the company. Grundfos pumps are famous in the industry for technical sophistication, reliability and consistent high performance.

The CM series pumps were created with compactness, flexibility and performance reliability in mind and are typically used in washing, cleaning, temperature control, water treatment and irrigation applications. Each pump is of a horizontal, multistage close-coupled design and runs quietly. One of the special features is the Grundfos proprietary mechanical shaft seal technology which eliminated the common problem wherein the seal faces stick together. In addition, these pumps are low maintenance, service friendly and have a wide performance range within the series.

The CME Plus series is, as the name suggests, an upgrade of the standard Grundfos CME pump. The CME Plus comes pre-wired and is used to provide constant water pressure in domestic applications. No more worrying about your water pressure fluctuating! The easy interface also allows the user to personalize the water pressure simply by pressing a button, while the stop function saves water if water usage drops past a certain point.

CR series pumps are also multistage pumps that include a pump, motor and integrated Vertical Frequency Drive (VFD). These pumps are perfect for industrial processing systems, washing and cleaning, pumping acids, filtration systems, pressure boosting, water treatment, HVAC and irrigation. Compact with specially engineered functionalities, complete CR units (pump, motor, VFD) are tested together in the factory before shipping.

“Grundfos engineering really pushes the envelope, it’s amazing to see the new stuff they add to pumps,” according Pump Products specialist Christian. “I think our customers are going to be really excited for these pumps.”

Specifically, Pump Products now has the right to distribute Goulds 3657 series centrifugal pumps. These high quality pumps are typically used for pure water transfer, chemical transfer, pharmaceutical procedures and beverage processing.

Gould advertises the “superior materials of construction” which includes precision invest-ment cast 316 stainless steel with NPT threaded suction and discharge with four position discharge orientation. The open impeller design reduces the risk of clogging. The mechanical seal has carbon vs silicon carbide seal faces encased in Viton elastomers with stainless steel parts (optional seals can also be obtained for high temp or abrasive applications).  The Goulds 3657 pumps are also built with a back pull-out design for simple cleaning and disassembly without disturbing the piping.

The premium effiency motor is a NEMA standard 56J frame with a ball bearing design that allows for continuous operation. Both single and three phase models are available. Overall, the pumping ability of this series is hard to match.

Pump Products Films™ Debuts New “Meet the Team” Video Project

Introducing the Pump Products team!

In the age of rapid and expansive ecommerce, it can sometimes be hard to know who to trust. The product pictures you see online is merely a pixelated simulacrum of the real thing; the words you read describing the product just a collection of 0s and 1s. For all you know, everything you view or purchase online could be a surreptitious attempt to download poisonous malware to your computer.

In the old days, you’d walk or bike to the old corner store, say hello to Buck behind the counter and pickup your product. You could touch it, smell it, feel the texture, the weight and shape of the thing. Now you just click a button, sit and weight and hope the void answers you back.

It’s not just ecommerce. All over the globe, in every possible industry or enterprise, the machine keeps building while mankind stares blankly at our screens, bathed in a warming glow that leaves us insensate, mute and apathetic. We will not colonize the stars; our drones will.

What I’m saying is that it’s still important to have a human touch even in this crazy technologically fueled era. Human interaction is good for the soul and brain and it allows for things like context, nuance and extenuating circumstances. This is especially the case when you’re handing over your hard earned money in exchange for a product. You want to know that the person you’re buying from knows and what he or she is talking about.

Pumps are perhaps the most pertinent example of an absolutely necessary product that many people do not understand. Trying to buy online can be confusing as well, because many pumps look the same and have similar operating parameters. That’s why our staff of knowledgeable and dedicated application engineers are so important. These brave and handsome men talk to customers and get to know the inner workings of a system to ensure that everyone gets the right pump.

In order to get to know the people you’re talking to, Pump Products Films™ is creating short videos introducing you to our application engineers. Created by the legendary auteur director “Mike,” theses videos will offer you a raw, bracing, no-holds barred look at the life of a Pump Products application engineer. At the end you will emerge changed and better for the experience. All in a minute or less!

Here are the first two videos in the series:


Nick is one of our longest-serving and most experienced team members. He has an extensive background in pumps and plumbing, as well as an encyclopedic knowledge of parts, models and pump series. Nick always makes sure to take detailed notes on any case and always follows up with customers promptly. He is considered one of the “go-to” guys in the office.

Lee is well-known for his witty sense of humor and excellent phone manner. He puts customers at ease and lets them know he can be trusted to get them the pump they need. If you’re looking for a laugh and nice conversation with your pump order, call up our man Lee.

Both Nick and Lee or any of our talented application engineers are ready and eager to help customers get the pumps they need. Watch out for more of these special “meet the team” videos and get ready to experience a world you never could have possibly imagined.

Happy New Year’s From PumpProducts.com! Our Year in Review

Pumphead reflects on the last year

Happy (almost) New Year’s Eve from Pump Products! It’s that time when we reflect on the events, achievements and memories of the past year and toast to the new year and new opportunities. What are you doing for the New Year? I sincerely hope it is something fun with loved ones. Just don’t imbibe too much champagne!

As for myself, I’ll be nursing a nice glass of whiskey, looking at old family photos and calling my ex-wife until she lets me see little Pumphead Junior again.

Of course you could argue that all the hoopla is really meaningless. It’s just an arbitrary change of the calendar. You fools, you absolute fools! Another year closer to death. But off course, as with anything in life, the meaning comes from what you decide to invest in the occasion.

Here are some great Pump Products memories and achievements of the 2017 year:

–Held a totally rad cookout that drew dozens of hardcore pump fans

–Partnered with excellent new manufacturers to distribute their quality products, including See Water Inc., Davey, Alderon and A.Y. McDonald

–Maintained excellent relationships with our existing manufacturing partners, and even adding some new lines, such as the Grundfos SQ series submersible well pumps

–Vastly increased our in-house stock of some of our best-selling pump manufacturers and series. More pumps in stock means customers will receive their order quicker

–Conducted several in-depth training sessions with manufacturers to help our team members get a better understanding of specific products and how those products can help customers

–Rated as an “Elite” merchant by customers through Resellers Ratings with a 9.03 score

Those are just a few of the things I’m proud of from the past year. The other big part of New Year’s is making resolutions regarding things you’d like to accomplish in the coming year. With that said, here are just a few of the resolutions of everyone at Pump Products:

–Increase our response time to any and all customer inquiries

–Continue to train and learn more about pumps

–Reduce the amount of returns and warranty applications we receive

–Obtain distribution rights for more pump lines and keep more pumps in stock in our warehouse

Those are just some of the things we resolve. We’re very proud of our services and we will always strive to get better. What about you? Do you have any accomplishments from the last year that you’re particularly proud of or resolutions you want to make? Let us know in the comments!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Savings from PumpProducts.com!

Merry Christmas from PumpProducts.com! And a Happy Hanukkah to God’s chosen as well. We also want to wish you a quality Kwanzaa, a tip-top Tet and a solemn, dignified Ramadan (not until May, but still). Basically, we want you to enjoy the holiday season, whether you’re gathering together with loved ones, observing ancient religious customs or simply enjoying some quiet reflective time alone.

Pumpmas is coming

All those afore mentioned things are great, but what we really want to talk about is DEALS baby! This is by far the biggest shopping stretch of the year and if you’re anything like me, you’ve postponed your Christmas shopping to the eleventh hour and you’re scrambling to find something good. Some popular gift choices include:

-Electronic gizmo that neither of your parents can comprehend or use

-Book that is distantly related to your significant other’s chosen field or hobby

-The gift card, the last refuge of a scoundrel and a sure sign you’ve given up (a personal favorite)

-A scarf, I guess

Buy why bother with such trinkets that will be quickly discarded or never even used? Why not buy the people you love something practical, something that will last? Why not get them a PUMP? This year, give your family the gift of pumps.

To wit, some recommendations. Is your dad always worrying about the reliability of his basement sump pump?  Well Liberty has you covered and makes excellent sump pumps. Liberty pumps come with a two-year warranty as opposed to the standard one-year policy. Liberty stands by its products.

If high head is your wastewater worry, might I humbly suggest one of the Zoeller varietals? Zoeller does good work in this area and the Zoeller 160 series and Zoeller 180 series are particular standouts.

Of course it’s still circulator season and if hot water is what you need, look no further than the industry bestselling Taco-007 cartridge circulator. It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

So now that I’ve given some recommendations, here is what you’ve been waiting for: the precious coupon codes. Use christmas5 to receive $5 off of any order and use christmas10 to receive $10 off of any order of $100 or more. Codes are active until 01/02/2018. I’m in a generous spirit this year.

Enjoy your pumps and enjoy the holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving from Pump Products!

Inspector Pumphead is ready to carve the turkey – and your face!

Happy Thanksgiving from Pump Products! Thanksgiving, also known as “Turkey Day” and “The Day of Tolerating Your Relatives”, is my personal favorite holiday of the year.

Why you ask? Simply because it is not overly commercialized, it is not sanctimonious or boring, and it does not require you to shell out money for overpriced wares for people you don’t even like. You just show up, maybe bring a casserole, and some whiskey, eat and hang out with your family. It’s a very simple and straightforward celebration.

Thanksgiving is not inherently political either. Sure people joke about getting in fights with your relatives over politics, but overall there is no political meaning to the holiday itself. Of course, many people use the holiday to reflect on the brutal treatment of Native American tribes over the last few hundred years, but hey, at least the original Thanksgiving was peaceful and symbolized the potential for friendship, however much that potential ended up being wasted.

Since Thanksgiving doesn’t saturate everyday life with annoying songs, jingles, decorations and ads,it is basically just a long weekend. That’s why I’m going to spend mine relaxing, eating, and throwing the ‘ol “pigskin” around with my son (if the ex-Mrs. Pumphead lets me see him!). I’ll probably also make some time doing a little plumbing and water system work, because that’s just what I do!

So enjoy! And watch our staff video below:


What do you like most about Thanksgiving? What’s your favorite food or family tradition? Let us know in the comments.

Pump Products Now Carrying Grundfos SQ Series Submersible Well Pumps

Pump Products is proud to announce that the company is now distributing a new product line from Grundfos Pumps, the Grundfos SQ series submersible well pumps.

Grundfos SQ submersible well pump

The introduction of the SQ series marks the expansion of a longstanding and fruitful partnership. Pump Products currently carries many other products and lines from Grundfos.

The SQ series is an innovative, premium pump series specifically designed to simplify the installation process and improve the overall reliability of your well pump system. Each SQ pump includes several special features precision engineered by the Grundfos team to increase performance.

These 3″ submersible pumps can operate both continuously and intermittently for domestic water supply, light commercial water supply, irrigation and tank applications in 3″ or larger diameter wells,

SQ pumps come close coupled to an innovative motor design that uses permanent magnet technology and a Grundfos motor to electronically control the motor speed. This allows for several features such as constant pressure, control, soft-start and integrated dry-run protection. The smart motor communicated via a status box through the power leads so it is not required to run additional wires down the well.

The motor design also protects against overvoltage, undervoltage and voltage fluctuation, ensuring a longer performance life. The motor is also uses a low amperage making it possible to connect more appliances to the same fuse group. The pump design features floating impellers that are not fashioned to the shaft for increased wear resistance and protection against upthrust. Overload protection and temperature protection are also included.

All in all, Grundfos SQ series well pumps are an advanced high quality option for the discerning consumer. The quality performance, engineering and long life are sure to make this a popular well pump.

“I don’t think a lot of U.S. distributors carry this line, so we’re really excited to have the opportunity,” application engineer Nick said. “Grundfos makes a quality product so I’m sure our customers will be happy.”
