  • Pumps stop water supply holes

    Each year billions of litres of pure drinking water pour out from leaking pipelines long before they reach the consumers. Grundfos technology can reduce the waste of water. The solution works with pressure control. The higher pressure in the pipes, the more leakage from the leaking pipes. To obtain less pressure Grundfos puts more pumps in parallel to keep the pressure in the water pipes. The ...
