  • Transfer Pump Buyers Guide

    October 3, 2013

    Transfer pumps are used to move fluids from one location to another. These lightweight, portable units are suitable for a wide range of applications including pool cover drainage, livestock watering and wet-vac projects. They are also an effective means of boosting water pressure and draining hot water tanks. Choosing the Right Transfer Pump Transfer pumps can be applied to a variety of liquids. Thin liquids such as water can be moved with basic pumps while thick liquids such as oil require specialized pumps. Two important things to consider when choosing a transfer pump are: a) the type of job you will use the transfer pump for b) the size of the pump will you need A transfer pump obtained to drain a waterbed may not be suitable for draining a hot water tank or flooded basement. Check a pump's specifications and match them against the power, liquid volume and temperature demands of the task you to apply it to. A transfer pump is activated by priming the outlet and inlet pump, connecting the water suction attachment, and connecting the pump to a power source, making sure the pump is located in a dry area. Most transfer pumps are non-submersible and should not be used in running showers, saunas, or other wet locations. For optimum efficiency, a transfer pump should be placed as close to liquid and power sources as possible. So, along with ambient moisture, cord length is an important consideration when choosing a transfer pump. Transfer pump's are available in a range of styles and power options, with variations in basic features including priming options, maximum temperature settings and fitting settings.  Pump Products carries a selection of transfer pumpsto suit every application. TIPS Use reinforced plastic tubing or metal pipe for the suction side of the pump to prevent collapse of the suction piping. Do not coil or kink connection hoses. Discharge piping should never be larger than suction piping. Be sure all connections are air tight. Unplug the pump before all the water is completely gone. Do not run the pump dry. Impeller and mechanical seal damage will result. Clean and flush your pump after each use. Chemical residue can corrode the inside of your pump.

  • Irrigation Pump Buyers Guide

    February 12, 2013

    Irrigation pumps are manufactured in a wide range of designs including centrifugal, submersible, jet and propeller models. They are used in domestic lawn sprinkling and water boosting applications as well as in large-scale agriculture and fire prevention. Irrigation pumps can draw on a municipal water supply or natural source such as a lake or pond and are available in electric or gas-fueled models.   View our Irrigation Pump Video Video courtesy of learnengineering.org Choosing the Right Irrigation Pump Properly sizing an irrigation pump involves measuring your water source pressure (psi) against the flow (gph) and pressure (feet of head) requirements of your watering system and selecting the pump that will most efficiently connect the former to the latter. There are a number of on-line tutorials available to those interested in designing a basic irrigation system that is compatible with local water resources. Professional irrigation services are an option for applications with complex requirements. When it comes to selecting the pump at the center of the equation, pump curves are a good place to start. Pump curves are issued by pump manufacturers to illustrate a pump’s performance over a range of pressures and flows in feet of head and psi. The shape of a pump curve varies according a pump’s design. Pump efficiency is maximal at a particular combination of discharge and head and then drops below the maximum as the discharge rate increases. The objective is to select the pump with highest efficiency at the flow rate and pressure conditions required by your system. As a general rule, pumps with electric motors are driven at either 1750 or 3500 rpm (½ to 2 hp). Models driven at 1750 rpm are capable of lower head but higher discharge than those driven at 3500 rpm. IRRIGATION PUMP TYPES Centrifugal Pumps are commonly used for domestic irrigation because they can draw on water sources ranging from a municipal water supply to a creek and can deliver constant flow rates under a wide range of conditions. They move water through suction force generated by a rapidly spinning impeller and must be filled with water to remove air, or primed, in order to operate. The above video provides a detailed explanation of how a centifugal irrigation pump operates.   Submersible Pumps operate underwater, often pushing water up from inside a well, and are commonly used in pressure boosting applications. What they lack in versatility they make up for in efficiency. Submersible pumps do not need to be primed and run quietly.     Jet Pumps are terrestrial pumps with submersible components that make them ideal for applications with fluctuating water levels. A jet pump operates by directing water down an intake to cause water lift. Jet pumps do not need to be primed.     Propeller Pumps use a propeller to move large amounts of water at low heads. Propeller pumps are among the smallest irrigation pumps.     FEATURES Self Priming pumps don't require manual priming, which often involves pouring buckets of water down into the pump and pipe which can be a slow and messy process. A Flow Switch can be used with a booster pump to activate the pump and bring pressure up to an acceptable level when low water flow is detected in the pipes. A Timer makes it possible to save money by automatically watering a lawn during off-peak hours. They can also be set to operate when you're at work or away on vacation. A Pressure Switch helps to maintain a pump’s peak efficiency by turning it on when pressure in pipes is too low and turning it off when pressure is too high. Corrosion Resistance helps to ensure that pumps continue to function properly long after they are installed. This is an important feature in submersible pumps.

  • Sewage Pump Buyers Guide

    February 12, 2013

    When a plumbing system is set lower than a municipal sewer line, sewage pumps are used to pump wastewater from a collection basin up to the main sewer. In septic tank systems sewage pumps often move fluid waste to a leach field. Sewage pumps are designed to pump fluids containing soft solids of up to 2” in diameter. They are submersible and often controlled by float switches that activate the pump when the liquid level in the basin rises. Sewage pumps are rated in horsepower and most models are capable of moving several thousand gallons of fluid per hour.   View our Sewage Pump Video Video used courtesy of Liberty Pumps How To Size a Sewage Pump The two main factors to bear in mind when sizing a sewage pump are the volume of sewage to be pumped, generally measured in gallons per minute (gpm), and the height and distance it must be moved (head). Gpm is determined by a pump's horsepower (hp) and will vary according to the vertical distance between the sewage basin and discharge point. In a residential application, a ½ hp pump with a high head will have a lower gpm than one with a low head. Gpm at 20 ft. of head = 200 (gpm) means that the sewage pump can move up to 200 gallons of water per minute if the vertical distance between the sewage basin and the septic tank is 20 feet. (Gallons per hour, or gph, is an alternative measure that can be calculated by multiplying the gpm by 60.) A sewage pump with low horsepower and gpm may cost less but if it must run constantly to meet pumping demands it may not last as long as a more powerful pump that will not have to run as often. When selecting a sewage pump you should estimate the demands you will be putting on it as closely as possible. A pump that is properly sized will result in the longest possible life. SPECIAL FEATURES Thermal Overload Protection is a feature that helps to extend the life of a sewage pump by automatically shutting off when the pump’s internal temperature reaches a critical level. Packaged Sewage Pump Systems include a sewage pump, basin and piping along with all of the other components necessary for home sewage disposal bundled into one package.

  • Water Booster Pump Buyers Guide

    February 12, 2013

      Booster pumps are used to maintain ideal water pressure in tall or high-set buildings and in areas with low or fluctuating water pressure. They are installed at the point where a municipal water line enters a building and are commonly set to run at 30-50 psi. As pressure drops in the tank, the pump draws water from the water supply line, raising pressure in the tank and boosting the water pressure in the building. A typical booster pump system consists of a pump, motor, pressure tank and controller.   View our water booster pump video Video used courtesy of Grundfos How To Size a Booster Pump When sizing a booster pump, it is important to measure current water pressure against the amount of pressure a given booster pump can provide. A homeowner looking to boost water pressure from 25 psi to 40 psi will require a booster pump capable of producing 15 psi. Since most pumps are r ated in feet of head, the following formula can be used to convert psi to feet of head: PSI x 2.31 = feet head Feet head x 0.433 = PSI Once the performance requirements of a booster pump have been established, the best pump for the application can be determined. Find out about required maintenance and warranty options. Consider where the pump will be placed as areas of limited access will present maintenance and repair challenges. Consider the configuration and features that are best for your application. Single Stage Booster Pumps are attached to a main water supply pipe from which they draw water into a building water system. Multiple Stage Booster Pumps use centrifugal force to pull the water up into the system. They are often used in connection with underground water supplies in light irrigation applications. Manual Operating Systems require turning on a switch to increase water pressure. Automated Operating Systems monitor the water pressure and turn on when there is a need for more water. For detailed specs, manuals and reviews on the booster pumps we stock and ship nationally, log on to our booster pump page or call us for details: 1-800-429-0800.
