Important Things To Know Before Buying A Drainage Pump

So, you are planning to get yourself a drainage pump. You went to the market and looked at the ONGA water pump, Tsurumi, Lowara and others, got confused and came back home empty-handed due to a lack of knowledge about drainage pumps. This blog specifically addresses this confusion by providing some accurate answers about dilemmas related to drainage pumps. If you are considering buying one in near future, here is all you need to note:

  • Flow Rate: The first thing that you need to understand about a drainage pump is its flow rate. Flow rate is what defines the effectiveness of a water pump. Technically, the flow rate is the time a water pump needs to produce specific amounts of water and it is normally measured in litres per minute. If you plan to use the drainage pump for a farm or industry it must have the power to move chemical waste or any kind of foul water with speed from one point to another.
  • Material: You need to choose the material of the pump depending on the frequency of its usage. Pumps with plastic cores are more economical in nature while that with an iron case core are heavy on the pocket.
  • Clogging: It has been noted that some drainage pumps clog more often than others which moots the point of having them. Look for a pump that has an inlet point without any net along with an impeller that can deal with solids up to a size range of half to one inch in size.
  • Timer: Make sure the pump you select has a timer installed in it. It will come in extremely handy when water starts rising and it will inform you instantly. Such things are essential when you are dealing with high amounts of waste.
  • Switch: Get a pump that has a mechanical switch. The ones with pressure switches may send false alarms and cause other problems. Also, make sure you need to purchase a pump that has a solid float. It will keep it from waterlogging. Waterlogged pumps sometimes fail to shut down which then burns down the pump.

These are a few points that need close consideration. If your basement has a frequent flooding problem then a drainage pump would be best to have around. But remember that drainage pumps are vulnerable to damage and much more. Therefore, it is wise to always have a backup pump. You can install a backup pump directly next to the main pump. These pumps are designed to begin pumping and keep away flooding if the main pump fails or is not able to deal with high volumes of water getting into your place. If you are an industry owner, you can have several pumps together. You can always have packages that have three pumps set to be installed together.
