Sprinkler Pumps

  • Having a well sprinkler system installed on your property is highly beneficial for both your gardens and lawns. Sprinkler systems provide homeowners with an efficient way to water their gardens and lawns without wasting water and receiving high water bills. One of the important features of a sprinkler system is a sprinkler pump that sends water throughout the entire system, especially the sprinkler heads which then throw water into the required areas of your garden and lawn.
  • There are various different types of sprinkler pumps which can be used for both residential and commercial properties.
  • Sprinkler Pump Considerations
  • When we design a sprinkler system, we will recommend the appropriate size pump which takes into consideration volume and pressure.
  • By installing a pump system and not using city water, we can design a system with less zones due to the higher efficiency of the pump as opposed to not being restricted by the amount of gallons per minute supplied by the city water supply.
  • There are many options for water sources including lakes, wells, and canals.

Types of Pumps

Centrifugal Pumps

  • Centrifugal pumps are the most common pumps used in irrigation systems that range from 1.5 hp to 30hp which pulls the water from its source.

Submersible Pumps

  • Submersible pumps are installed completely under water including the motor and push the water from its source and can be used in many applications that demand high volumes of water and no noise.

Booster Pumps

  • Booster pumps run on large pressurized irrigation systems. One or more pumps are present to maintain the pressure within the system so that the larger pumps do not start and stop frequently which can damage larger pumps.
  • We can service, repair and replace many types of sprinkler and irrigation pumps. We stock a variety of pumps and can replace a standard 1.5 hp pump in most cases at the time of our visit.
  • We also troubleshoot and replace magnetic pump start relays. We can replace the old rusted metal cabinets with modern plastic locking cabinets that will weather the elements.
  • Pumps larger than 7.5 hp, in most cases, can be rebuilt depending on the age and condition of the pump.
  • We carry all types of brass and galvanized check valves from 1.5″ to 6″ and provide annual service for pump screens.
  • During drought conditions, you should have your system checked making sure that lake and canal levels do not jeopardize your pump and your irrigation system.
