When determining which pump to us for an application, all pumps are not created equal.
You have to take a number of factors into account. Among them are flow requirements, head conditions and suction requirements. One of the most popular pump types and sizes — the 6-in. dewatering pumps — is typically capable of pumping in excess of 1,400 gpm, but the success of your project is going to be determined mainly with your pump choice. If you have a specific need, say sumping a lake, wellpointing a construction excavation or sewage bypass pumping, then selecting the right pump will make the project a successful one. Select the wrong pump and the project will face additional challenges.
