Floating pump systems are the true workhorses of the pump family. They are well-built, made to be sturdy and low maintenance, which is one reason why they are so popular for certain applications. Absolutely reliable, these pumps have a low operational cost. Installation of this vertical turbine pump is a breeze, as the entire head and motor mount of the system is lightweight, especially when compared to other pumps that can perform similar tasks.




What sort of applications can a floating pump handle? They work exceptionally well when used in areas where conventional pumps can't be used. When located in a pond, floating pump use is ideal as these pumps are self-priming and work unattended. When you have a pump in the middle of a pond or lake, it is nice to know that you won't have to take a boat out to it in order to prime it if needed. These pumps are most commonly used for different types of drainage, for irrigation needs, gricultural needs such as animal watering and in dairy lagoons to help prepare manure for use as fertilizer.




Excavation and construction sites are sold on the functions of floating pump systems. They can be used to drain water from deep holes than have been cleared for building purposes, to drain ponds in preparation for filling them with dirt so that new structures can be raised. Wastewater and recycling pits find the floating pump price to be very reasonable, considering the fact that it is such a time-saving device. Floating pumps are also used extensively for irrigation purposes, bringing water to areas where it would not be possible to grow crops otherwise.




The floating pump system rests on a pontoon flotation system. These floats are built tough, and are able to withstand a lot of use. Made with a foam filling similar to that used in boating accessories and supplies, the floats are wrapped in a thick and strong polyester cover and securely attached to a steel frame. br>



A floating pump can be used for the same applications as the versatile dewatering pumps. Both pumps can handle many thousands of gallons of water each minute is it being run. To make the already low maintenance even easier, you can purchase self cleaning intake screens for most models of floating pumps. You can also purchase a set of wheels and a winch kit for these pumps, which makes it much easier to move the floating pump setup from place to place.




Depending upon what application you need a floating pump for, you should be quite pleased with the quality workmanship and value that comes built into these hard working pumps.
