A sump pump is designed to remove excess water from weeping tiles or seepage from a basement. There are many different types to choose from depending on the flow and head (how high do they have to push the water) required. An effluent pump is usually a higher grade of pump and is most often installed in a septic tank to push the effluent up to the tile bed. An effluent pump can be used as a sump pump.
We offer a complete line of sump tanks, check valves, high water alarms, float switches and battery back up systems.
A sewage pump is designed for the removal of wastewater from a building in cases where the drain is higher than the floor or when the installation of a drain in the floor is too costly. They are Barnes Sewage Pumpsoften used in septic tanks where they pump the effluent up to the tile bed. They are available in many sizes depending on what flow and head (how high it has to push the water) is required. A sewage pump can be used as a sump pump when greater flow is required. A wide variety of multiple pump systems, different level controls sewage basins, check valves and high water alarms are available from the Pump House.
A circulator moves hot water through a series of pipes providing hot water to heat a dwelling, or for domestic use. We will be able to assist you on selecting the right pump for the job. The pump house stocks repair parts and accessories for hot water recirculation systems.
A jet pump is designed for delivering water from a well, lake or stream into a home or cottage for domestic purposes.
There are two types of jet pumps:
• Shallow Well – The water level is less than 25’ (7.6m) below the pump, one pipe goes into the water.
• Deep Well – The water level is more than 25’ (7.6m) below the pump, two pipes go into the water.
If a deep well jet pump is required a convertible (shallow or deep well) jet pump is most often used.
A submersible well pump is designed for delivering water from a well, lake or stream into a house or cottage for domestic use. Because of the fact that they are submersible, they are a very efficient way of pumping water. They do not require priming and are available for any water depth or desired flow requirements. They are also an ideal pump for irrigation systems when drawing water from a lake or pond.
In all cases a pressure tank is required in a well system. It stores the water that the pump (jet or submersible) supplies under pressure until it is required at a faucet, shower or hose.
There are several different styles of pressure tanks available:
• Galvanized Tank – This type of tank was the first developed. There are limited ways of keeping them from water logging and because they do not have a pre-charge a large volume tank is required.
• Bladder Tank – This type of tank is the preferred style of pressure tank. Because the tank is pre-charged a larger usable volume of water can removed from a smaller tank. They never water log.
• Fiberglass Retention – They can be used in place of an old style galvanized tank. They are ideal for water treatment as there is not any metal in them. They can also be used as a cold water storage tank.
These pumps have a very wide range of applications. They are used for moving water from one point to another for uses in industrial process, for irrigation, for anywhere that water is required. The pump house can assist you in sizing your pump to meet your specific need. We stock pump kits to custom build the pump you require, which can eliminate costly down times.
We have a complete line of water treatment products:
• Water Filters – These are primarily cartridge style filters designed to remove undesirable (dirt/taste) material from the water. They will not remove bacteria from water.
• Ultra Violet Units – These units are designed to kill bacteria from the water, making it potable to consume.
• Water Softeners – These remove calcium (hardness) from the water, making your appliances last longer while at the same reducing the amount of soap required. A water softener can also be used to reduce iron and hydrogen sulphide (rotten egg smell) from your water.
