Your pumps keep things moving. When they no longer help to move or circulate your home’s water, you need to call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Myrtle Beach to revive your pumps. Here’s what you need to know about the different styles and purposes of pumps, which are all the types of pumps we can help you replace or repair:

*Pumps have a wide variety of functions, which means they come in many shapes and sizes, handling gas or liquid, working from high-pressure to low-pressure, and from high-volume to low-volume.

*Pumps are commonly rated by horsepower, flow rate, outlet pressure in feet (or meters) of head, inlet suction in suction feet (or meters) of head. The head can be simplified as the number of feet or meters the pump can raise or lower a column of water at atmospheric pressure.

*Water pumps are mostly used for irrigation as part of a lawn sprinkler system, consisting of various plumbing parts, piping and control equipment.

*A pool pump is the primary piece of electric equipment used in re-circulating the water from the pool through a filtering system. Water is forced through a filter and then returned, treated, to the pool. Residential pool pumps typically run up to 24 hours a day in the summer.

*Sump pumps can help collect excess water and move it away from your home’s foundation as the water table rises and falls throughout the year. A variety of pumps and sizes are available, including electrical, water-powered and battery-powered backup models for use in areas prone to power outages.
