Submersible pumps are most often used in artesian wells. When installed properly, they can also be used in reservoirs, lakes, rivers and ponds. Since they are installed in the water and do not require priming or suction, they are able to deliver a high volume of water at the ideal operating pressure required for sprinkler systems.
They can be installed with filtration and automated safety systems to ensure they are not damaged. They can be controlled by the sprinkler systems computer or operate based on system pressure and demand. However, when installed exclusively for use on a sprinkler system, the design of the sprinkler system must match the output of the pump or premature wear and failure of the pump will occur.
You can rest assured that our technicians and engineers are able to design, install, service or repair your pump so that it operates properly and reliably.
Jet and Centrifugal
Jet and centrifugal pumps are used to either supply water or boost the pressure of an existing water source. These pumps are not installed in the water so attention to its placement is critical to limit the height it has to lift the water.
Generally, jet and centrifugal pumps are less expensive than submersible pumps. The advantages of one over the other can be explained during a visit to the site.
Booster pumps are used to boost water pressure. They can be installed to overcome pressure losses due to elevation, friction, and can sometimes be used to make a poorly designed irrigation system operational.
Generally all our pump station installations use a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) so that we are able to reduce energy costs, system wear and noise levels. Each system is custom ordered to the site requirements. Grundfos CR vertical, multi-stage, centrifugal pumps maximize performance, economy and reliability by giving you:
