Guide to Choosing the Right Water Pump

When purchasing a water pump, there are various considerations you need to make. All water pumps are measured in discharge capacity (GPM), vertical suction lift and maximum head lift.

Discharge capacity

The discharge capacity is the rate of speed that water flows from the source to the discharge point, measured in litres per minute. This provides the power to move water quickly.

Vertical suction lift

The vertical suction lift is the vertical distance from the water source from the pump. This is most important for draining a basement or deep pond.

Maximum head lift

The maximum head lift is the total height from the source of the water to the destination or drainage point. This provides the power to move water over a distance.
