When Considering a House Pump, Ask the Right Questions with Parker Pumps

September 27, 2022

There are significant differences between the various pumps and providers of pumps. In addition, pumps, mainly rotary lobe pumps, do not come in a standard size that fits all applications. Be sure you have all the information you need to make an educated purchase of a pump that will fulfil your needs and get the job done.

What Is the Purpose of These Pumps?

Each variety of pumps is intended to perform a distinct set of operations. Compared to others, specific individuals can do a greater variety of jobs. For instance, the centrifugal pump was explicitly developed to pump liquids with viscosities comparable to water effectively. Because of this, they are typically more affordable than other types and kinds of pumps. The progressive cavity pump was developed specifically to effectively pump thick, viscous materials that may include some particles. Elastomeric rotary lobe pumps were developed to pump manure and other materials of varying solidities and viscosities.

How Difficult Is It to Obtain Spare Parts?

You made the proper choice by purchasing the right pump for the job. Due to the importance of the application, you have prepared for it with a backup pump. The emergency pump failed because someone failed to remember to open the suction valve before the backup pump started working, which caused the pump to fail. Is there a sufficient quantity of spare parts at your manufacturer's facility, and are they available to be shipped to you quickly? In such a case, you could enquire with the pump contractors in your area to see if they can stock any. If this is not possible, you may be required to pay more money to stock your shelves with a greater quantity of products.

What Is the Long-Term Investment-To-Price Ratio of the Pump I Am Getting?

Most pumping applications worldwide involve moving transparent, clean fluids analogous to water. Pumps handling additional materials and fluids are often more expensive since these applications are specialised. It is important to remember that the family of pumps designed for the application that comes the closest to meeting your requirements might not be the most cost-effective solution in the short term, but they very well might be the most cost-effective solution throughout the equipment's lifetime. If you have to replace a cheap pump regularly due to failure because it is not a suitable fit for your operation, then the purchase was not a wise investment. 

Is There Good Technical Assistance Available From Your Pump Manufacturer?

Let's be honest: the sales representative will not be able to respond to every question asked. It would be best if you had a good, trusted contact at the manufacturer who can help guide you through challenging applications or give some advice to extend your equipment's life. When you go with Parker Pumps, you may rest easy about this particular point!

Does Your Pump Manufacturer Have Good Local Reps?

You have experienced a pump breakdown in the dewatering machinery and are working diligently to extinguish the fire. The major clarifier pump you use has stopped working, and a storm is expected to pass through the area soon. It is extremely beneficial to have a local representative that is familiar with your pumps and employs factory-trained staff who can come out and assist you in getting back up and running in an emergency.
