Transfer Pumps: The Different Uses & Features That Make the Cut

As any Aussie already knows, our vast land of blue and green and all in between is no stranger to water issues (in rural areas, that is), despite the fact that we have plenty of rivers and lakes and are surrounded by an ocean. This is when transfer pumps come into play to save the day. The simple, yet revolutionary technology of these ingenious devices renders them the perfect tool for eradicating water scarcity issues.

However, the role of these pumps does not end there. In fact, various agricultural jobs, such as irrigation, draining shallow flooded areas, distributing pesticides and fertilizers, would have been a whole lot difficult without them. What’s more, transfer pumps have also found their purpose in some commercial and residential tasks for which transferring liquids from one place to another is required.

The most important consideration prior to purchasing a transfer pump is the type of engine. The three types of engines available are: petrol, electrical and diesel powered. Usually, electrical ones are used for residential purposes, whereas petrol or diesel powered ones are for farming and construction purposes since they can perform longer and with more strength. Quality transfer pumps have the capacity of transferring thousands of liters per hour and offer head of 20 metres and more.

Next, the material that protects the engine is just as important as the engine itself. In the light of this fact, a quality pump is one that has rugged heavy-duty steel construction protecting the engine from all of its sides. Vertical suction and vertical delivery are also considered sought after features of a pump you can trust.

Speaking of trust, these pumps can be trusted with other liquids apart form water, such as some types of oils and gasoline. However, not every transfer pump is equipped to do so, it has to be specified that it has the special components for moving these liquids. So if you are buying online, make sure you go through all the specs listed and if you’re buying one from a store, ask whether the pump has pressure gauges that serve for safety monitoring and noncorrosive agents that make sure the chemicals don’t damage the pump.

So whether you are planning to get a pump for emergencies or you need it to aid you with some daily routine tasks, it’s very important to understand that buying quality means buying safety and saving money in the long run. These machines are not to be taken lightly since what they can do for you is not a job usually described as light.
