Are you looking to keep your grass green and your garden growing all summer long without wasting resources? At W.P. Law Inc. we have the solution to your problem. Sprinkler pumps are the solution. They are designed such that they save you money while at the same time conserving resources. Sprinkler pumps provide a steady flow of water while providing enough pressure to push water out of the sprinkler head.

Several factors will affect the water pump used. They include;

How high are you pumping the water?

Before purchasing a pump, we advise our clients to measure the amount of lift required from the surface of the water source to the pump. It is much easier for the pump to push water out than it is for it to pull water up. Therefore, the higher you have to pump the water, the more powerful pump you need.

How far are you pumping the water?

The distance the water has to travel before it reaches the sprinkler heads will also affect your pump choice. The longer the distance between the pump and the sprinklers the more the friction, and the more powerful the pump should be to maintain optimum flow and pressure.

How wide is the area the sprinklers have to cover?

To figure out which pump you should purchase you should consider the area the sprinklers have to cover. First, you have to calculate the gallons per minute (GPM) for each sprinkler and then add them up. The sprinklers' GMP and PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) will affect the sprinkler pump required.

The terminology used regarding pumps can be confusing to most people. If you need help figuring out which pump you need, consider contacting W.P. Law Inc. for expert advice.
