Pump Sales & RepairAt Pat’s Pump & Blower, one of our specialties is pump sales & repair. We recognize that choosing the right pump for your operations is a very important decision, and that going with the wrong pump can mean catastrophe at one point or another. For these reasons, it is important for you to consider several factors before you turn to us for pump sales & repair. These include:

  • The types of pumps available—From centrifugal pumps to rotary lobe pumps and diaphragm pumps, there are a variety of pumps on the market, and each type serves a specific purpose. For example, centrifugal pumps are ideal for moving large volumes of fluid in a rapid manner, while rotary lobe pumps are a good fit for tasks that require low-flow rate control.
  • The four points of pump data—In order to choose the best pump for any given job, you need to consider four main factors. These include the total pressure at which the pump is required to operate, what your desired flow rate is, the characteristics of the fluid, and what the suction lift is. After you have solidified these four points, you will be prepared to pick the proper pump.
  • Whether you need more than one pump—Many applications exist where having more than one pump is appropriate, and some where having more than one pump is optimal. In most cases, we recommend those turning to us for pump sales & repair to purchase several pumps if they have a particularly large or heavy-duty task to complete.
