Pumps work like a series of spinning plates, each adding pressure by centrifugal force which pushes the water up the pipe. An electric motor spins the plates (impellers).
How long does a pump last?
Most pumps are good for about 400,000 starts. They can run for 20 to 30 years under normal use.
Are some pumps better than others?
Absolutely. The pumps we use are all stainless steel. They are manufactured by a 150 year old, American company. They have a long record of dependability and are designed for efficiency and longevity.
