Drainage Pump

Drainage pump is often installed to move waste-water from a range of domestic and industrial sites, including private housing, farmland, and construction sites. They deal in underground dewatering, usually when gravity can’t be applied to move the water (in this respect a drainage pump is similar to a sewage pump). The principle of a pumped drainage system is to enable foul water, surface water and sewage to be efficiently and economically removed in areas of low gravity, or where it may otherwise be difficult to achieve a connection to the main drain.

Drainage pumps are centrifugal pumps, with special design enabling solids and other particles to pass without clogging the pump. When the pump is turned on, the motor starts to rotate the impeller, creating the pressure that pushes water into the impeller and goes into the discharge pipe. The sewage pump is powered through a 10-25 ft. You will also need to determine the best pump size, depending on your water home needs. Pumps are rated in GPM (gallons per minute). A typical 3- to 4-bedroom home requires 8-12 GPM. When determining your home water needs, add one GPM for every water fixture in your home. A good rule of thumb is that pumps should be able to pump out about half the pond volume every hour. So a pump that moves 500 gallons per hour would be appropriate for a 1,000 gallon pond. To determine the size pump you’ll need, make a few measurements and calculations. Light flow = 50 gph x waterfall width (in.)
