A sprinkler and irrigation pump are a pump used for providing water to a section of land. This may be for aesthetic reasons, such as making sure a patch of grass stays healthy, or may be used on a farm, where it is used to deliver water to crops.
A sprinkler or irrigation pump can be powered by a couple of different sources. Most are powered by electricity. Some may be powered by other fuel sources. Electricity offers the convenience of a constant energy source as long as the service is available. For more remote areas, other fuel sources like gasoline, diesel or propane may be the only option.
There are many different ways these pumps can be used to get water from one location to another. Choosing the proper pump will often depend on the situation and the preference of the manager of the irrigation system. Cost is a major factor for many people. Even more important, however, is choosing a pump of the right size to do the job.
Groundwater withdrawal has typically involved submersible or vertical turbine pumps that bring water to the surface. For surface water intake, centrifugal pumps in different configurations, split case pumps and end suction pumps have been traditional solutions.
How Irrigation work
Irrigation starts with sourcing water for your yard or crop from groundwater or surface water from a channel, lake, or storage pond. Next is water treatment, if necessary, and perhaps the addition of fertilizer or chemicals. Finally, water is delivered to your yard or crop using different techniques—such as flooding, sprinkler irrigation or drip/micro-spray applications.
Sprinkler and irrigation pumps are typically used for making sure a patch of grass stays healthy, or may be used on a farm, where a family's livelihood depends on irrigation.
Types of Fluids
Sprinkler and irrigation pumps are designed to handle water and thinner liquids.
