  • How To Change the Cartridge on a Taco Circulator Pump

    November 2, 2017

    Pump Products is back with another How-To guide. In this video, our expert Nick will walk you through the basic process of switching out the cartridge in a Taco circulator pump. A circulator keeps the water moving through your water system; the cartridge is the unit that holds the motor and impeller. This is a very simple process with minimal tools/equipment required. The pump used in this video is the Taco 007-F5: https://www.pumpproducts.com/taco-007...

  • How To Check if Your Pump is Under Warranty

    August 3, 2016

    One of the most common questions we get asked at Pump Products is "do I have a warranty for my broken pump" This video guides you through the process of claiming a warranty on products, specifically if you have a broken pump. A warranty is simply a written guarantee from a manufacturer to replace or repair a product or to redeem the value of a product. Warranties are only granted under certain conditions and within a certain timeframe. Pump Products' sales technicians are happy to work with customers who want to know if a pump is under warranty. Expert help is only a phone call away at 1.800.429.0800. Also, be sure to watch our video on how to identify pump tags: https://www.youtube.com/watchv=xv84Q...

  • Why Your Sump Pump Needs a Vent Hole

    July 29, 2016

  • How To Calculate Total Dynamic Head For a Pump

    June 23, 2016

    In this video we will be discussing how to calculate TDH or Total Dynamic Head. TDH is the total amount of system pressure, measured in feet, where water can flow through a system before gravity takes over. Put simply, you need the TDH in order to correctly size out your pump. To Calculate TDH we need to know 2 variables: 1) The vertical rise measures the vertical pipe in feet 2) The friction losses: The loss of flow in a system due to friction created by factors like: pipe type, size, fittings, horizontal runs of pipe, etc. 1. To calculate the vertical rise, you need to determine how many feet your water will have to travel upwards before gravity takes over. Simple take the lowest point the water sits and subtract it from the highest point 2. To determine the friction losses: First, acquire your flow rate in GPM. Once you know that, you can add the vertical and horizontal piping lengths of your system to the equivalent length of fittings in feet. Each type of fitting has an equivalent value measured in feet; refer to your preferred manufacturer’s friction loss chart for these values. Now, take the sum of the total length of pipe (including fittings) and divide it by 100.00. (As per 100 ft. of pipe) Next, you need to determine your friction loss multiplier by using the following information: • Type of piping • Schedule of piping • Diameter of piping • Required flow rate Once you have this, use a reference "Friction Loss Chart” from your favorite manufacturer to determine the friction loss multiplier. Finally, plug all your variables into the following formula and you’ll have your answer; [Total Length of Pipe (With Fittings)/100] X Friction Loss Multiplier = Total Dynamic Head In summation: To size and buy the correct pump for whatever application, you need to know your required GPM and your required TDH. By following the steps above, you should have no problem choosing the pump that’s right for you.
