Injection Feeder Systems

An injection system consists of a metering pump, tubing, a feed tank and the proper amount of solution Adjusting the dosage and monthly monitoring is vital for a rust stain-free sprinkler system. Our pumps have an adjustable dial that can increase or decrease the amount of solution that is injected into the irrigation system to dissolve the minerals that create rust staining.

Siphon Pump System

The alternative to a metering pump system is a siphoning system. They are less dependable and reliable and the amount of solution injected into the system is preset and cannot be adjusted. If the tank that holds the solution empties, it is possible to lose prime in your system and cause damage to the pump. We are able to service these systems but will not install them.

The metering pump has advanced noise reduction which makes it virtually silent, making it ideal for
residential applications. These units are well designed and have chemically resistant housings to provide
superior protection for outdoor application.
