Fresh Water Pumps vs. Gray Water Pumps

Jul 5, 2024

By webfx

Fresh water pumps are essential devices that move water from one area to another to be used for drinking or fresh water. They are commonly called submersible, jet (shallow or deep well), or centrifugal pumps.

Gray water pumps, commonly referred to as sump pumps, are also crucial for removing nondrinkable water and assisting in getting rid of excess water in pools, dams, and flooded areas. These pumps are not used on fresh or drinking water systems.

The Different Types of Water Pumps From Flint & Walling

Flint & Walling provides a variety of pumps for different purposes, including residential-use water pumps, booster pumps, and commercial water pumps. Our range includes:

  • Submersible pumps: Designed for well applications, our submersible pumps can operate submerged up to hundreds of feet underwater, making them ideal for deep wells.
  • Jet pumps: Suitable for both deep and shallow wells, our jet pumps can pump water from depths of up to 100 feet. These versatile pumps are also perfect for irrigation and gardening.
  • Centrifugal pumps: Our mechanical pumps move water using impellers. They transport fluid by converting rotational kinetic energy produced by the motor into hydrodynamic energy. Centrifugal pumps are typically small and work best in water levels up to 25 feet.
  • Booster pumps: These pumps increase pressure and flow, allowing water to move faster through plumbing pipes. They are suitable for filtration, reverse osmosis, HVAC, water treatment, and other industrial applications.
  • Irrigation and turf: Our irrigation pumping stations draw from the water source and feed it into the irrigation system’s mainline. They easily adapt to changing flow requirements and offer constant water pressures when used.
  • Livestock operation: We have evaporative cooling pumps that move water through the distribution lines and help provide cool air in livestock and poultry farms.
  • Sump and sewage: We offer sump pumps for basement draining and dewatering. We also have ejector pumps that help remove sewage from properties with lower plumbing and drain systems than the septic tank or sewer line.
  • Pond and fountain: Our pond and fountain systems operate in 1.5 meters of water or deeper. They’re great for displays and work well with our light kits.
