Pumps are used throughout the whole municipal water cycle.
Municipal water pumps are used to transport and distribute fresh water for human, industrial, and agricultural use. Often located near a water treatment facility or a potable water storage facility, they usually pump directly into the distribution piping system. Booster pumps may be added to increase pressure in the system where high-pressure zones are required to keep the water moving, or to handle peak flows.
Municipal wastewater pumps are used to collect sewage, drainage, effluent, and seepage water in residential, agricultural, light commercial, and industrial areas. Several different types of pumps may be used as a municipal wastewater pump, depending on the application.Centrifugal pumps are often used for:
Choosing the best municipal water or wastewater pump helps optimize performance, reduce cost, and save energy and water.
When selecting a municipal water pump, it’s important to understand flow discharge pressure, material of construction, and the available power source. In order to evaluate flow output, the pressure or head that the pump is working against should be considered, as well as a number of factors:
For municipal wastewater pumps, the number of pumps and capacity should provide head capacity characteristics that closely correspond to wastewater quantity fluctuations. In other words, it’s important to consider all conditions of head and capacity under which the pumps will be required to operate.
