Pumps

Centrifugal Pumps are the most common form of irrigation pump, but certainly not the simplest. As one can guess, these bad boys use centrifugal force to move water from point A to point B. To accomplish this, centrifugal pumps use an impeller that spins water into the given housing- creating pressure which drives the water through piping. Centrifugal pumps can have multiple impellers or housings to significantly increase the water pressure. While increased pressure can be necessary for large estates, each added impeller increases the variables of a centrifugal pump going bust. Repairing these beasts is not easy and requires knowledge of where water or air can and can’t go. Sun Sprinklers installs and repairs quality STA-RITE pumps.
