Water Pumps by Application: How to Choose the Ideal One for Your Needs?

01 December 2022

What kind of water pump should I buy? It is a question that WACME Pty Ltd is asked quite frequently. There are a lot of possibilities, but the ideal water pump for you will depend on how you plan to use it. What purpose do you have for the pump? Is it used for water transfer, firefighting, possibly filling a 1,000-liter pod, or transferring chemical or hazardous water? The material type of the water pump, the drive power type, the water pressure, and other factors can all be chosen based on the application. Water pumps can be categorised based on their use, type of material, and fuel source. We’ll go over the many sorts of water pumps to assist you in making your purchase.

Water Transfer Pumps

Transfer pumps move large amounts of water. We have transfer pumps that can swiftly and effectively pump water from a dam to a truck or out of a truck. These pumps are available in petrol and diesel and can pump up to 20 cubic metres of water per hour. Always keep in mind the height or head that you wish to pump too because these pumps have a big volume but low pressure.

Fire Fighting Pumps

Firefighting pumps are adaptable because they can move large amounts of water in addition to fighting fires. Firefighter pumps come in two varieties. Single Impeller and Twin Impeller. A twin impeller has a higher pressure and a smaller volume of water flow than a single impeller. It can shoot water farther than a single impeller due to increased pressure being applied. The engine-driven does not rely on electricity, which a fire could destroy at any time. In most manufacturers, firefighter pumps are offered for both diesel and gasoline engines.

Trash Pumps

A trash pump is the best option when moving water that contains solids or rubbish. They are made to transport pebbles, leaves, and twigs that hold water safely (up to certain sizes). They are, therefore, ideal for transferring floodwater and dewatering construction sites. (Note that the pump merely passes them through; it does not crush them like a garbage disposal device.)

Submersible Pumps

These pumps are used for dewatering construction sites, irrigation, deep wells, and pools. Its pump is fully submerged in the liquid, as the name suggests. It moves liquid from point A to point B like other pumps, but this pump works by pushing fluid during the pumping process rather than pulling liquid.

Chemical Pumps 

Some chemicals and contaminated water, including sewage and seawater, can harm some pumps. Corrosion-resistant pumps, including those made of plastic or stainless steel, are resistant to chemicals. It is advised to ascertain whether materials are safe if you require a chemical-resistant pump. These are primarily employed for industrial and agricultural chemicals.
