SCL Water specialises in the supply of quality submersible and surface water pumps from leading manufacturers, such as Grundfos.
We are happy to offer advice and guidance on appropriate models to suit specific requirements. For an instance response please call us on 01769 575990.
There are a large range of pump types and models available for use in water supplies, SCL Water will provide expert advice on the pump type to suit your needs.In summary, pumps are either:
- Submersible Pumps push water from a borehole, well or tanked supply for use in many applications including; irrigation, drainage, wastewater, and drinking water supply.
Surface Pumps Draw water from a shallow source or tank and are often used for pressure boosting.
The type of pump depends on the depth of the water, flow rate and pressure required. Differences in these variables will affect the model and the size. We can specify a suitable pump based on your requirements. SCL Water specialises in the supply of 3 ", 4", 6" and larger pumps powered by single or 3-phase electricity.
The Grundfos 3" SQ/SQE range is a good example of a flexible, high quality solution for domestic or light commercial use.
A large number of older properties have wells constructed many years ago. Some wells are being rediscovered as houses are extended and a small submersible pump can be used to lift the water for use in the garden or even, after treatment, as the property supply.
These pumps tend to be submersible and specifically allow for the passage of some solids. The degree of contaminant that can be pumped varies with the pump type but good examples can be found by clicking on the following link.
The Grundfos SQE constant pressure systems are based on technology which senses water pressure and flow and adjusts the pump speed to maintain a constant supply at a pre-set pressure. The constant pressure system consists of a SQE variable speed pump, CU301 control unit, pressure sensor and pressure tank. A good example of the benefit of these systems is with domestic showers. When installed for a domestic property these systems ensure shower flow and pressure is unaffected by a tap being opened somewhere else in the house.
Booster systems are surface mounted systems and are designed to increase flow and pressure to preset levels without the need for large expansion vessels. Systems are typically installed where high pressure is required such as water supply for agricultural irrigation or for boosting mains water pressure from a storage tank.
