Mostly used for below the surface plumbing or draining work, the hydrostatic pump is billed as a highly reliable apparatus. There are a few other features of the hydrostatic test pump that get specialist plumbing technicians gushing with pride. These are highlighted in the rest of this short article.
The testing device is dependable, lasts long, has the capacity to handle high volumes, is unique and can run on dry, among a host of other features.
Hydrostatic test pumps are designed and built for the repair of water mains and sewerage mains. It has been specifically constructed for long-term performance rates. The hydrostatic test pump can handle up to ten percent of chlorine solutions. As well you should know by now, chlorine solutions are necessary to ensure that your water and sewerage mains remain clean and sanitized and free of all forms of pollutants and bacteria.
The test pump is indeed utilized to pump chlorinated water into a water main for the purposes of purifying the water. Diaphragms and seals are required to ensure that the pump can manage chlorine exposures that go up to 10%.
A unique manifold system has been implemented. It cuts down the number of fittings usually required in other testing pumps. The result of this system is less leaking and fewer breakdowns. And, thanks to the pump’s capacity for high work rates and the tendency to overextend its use, repair and maintenance work will still be required. But the work is a cinch, thanks to the design intention of the unique manifold system.
Another contributing factor to the pump’s hardiness is the bypass release valve. It takes pressure off of the pump during engine start-ups and protects against typical valve seat sticking. Also, the fact that the pump can run on dry contributes to the reduction in potential damage.
