Have you finally finished planning the perfect well setup for your municipality? Well, now all that’s left is picking the right vertical turbine pump, which isn’t always easy. Specifying the right pump type for your municipal application can be a chore, so the professionals from FloRight Pump & Controls are here to help.
Here are some helpful tips for specifying the best vertical turbine pump for your Municipality.
Identify the Ideal Make & Model
Often, when it comes to pump specifications, some are reluctant to name the make and model of the pump they find will be best suited to the application. However, identifying and naming a model and manufacturer demystifies the specification process and enables more competitive bidding.
Identify 3 Design Points
Identifying three design points will help ensure that the pump you specify will be within the optimal parameters. For example, assessing what’s known as the “condition of service” includes the design flow, head, and level of efficiency a chosen pump will perform at in your municipal application.
Factory-Certified Performance Tests
When it comes to specifying the right vertical turbine pump, there’s no better way than to invest in factory-certified performance tests to demonstrate how a pump reacts in the field. Although such tests can be expensive, they also leave little room for error when matching the right pump to your municipal application.
Choose Components from a Single Manufacturer
Also known as “unit responsibility,” choosing components from a single manufacturer is essential. This process is intended to minimize finger-pointing in the case of a failure or damaged component and ensures that the manufacturer you choose will take responsibility if there’s ever any issue.
When specifying a pump for your well application, choosing one that bears third-party certifications can help ensure you select one of the very best quality. This will make certain your pump has been factory tested and boasts unit responsibility.
Specifying the materials your vertical turbine pump is built with is another way to certify you receive a quality pump. The more in-depth you are about the parts specifications being used to build your pump, the more precise your end-product will be.
