How Do I Know What Size Pump I Need?

Before selecting your pump, you should be mindful of several sizing aspects. The first thing to consider is what kind of pump you need for your application. Pumps aren’t one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, they are designed to fit different situations, including general water transfer, agriculture, residential dewatering, or stormwater removal.

Once you know what you need a pump for, it’s essential to understand how to size your pump correctly. There are crucial characteristics to look at in terms of a pump’s performance, such as Max Head, Total Dynamic Head, Max Flow Rate, and Solids Handling. These areas will show you how much and how far the pump can transfer, along with the size of debris or waste it can handle.

  • Max Head: The vertical distance that a pump can push liquid against gravity. 
  • Total Dynamic Head: The back pressure from the system at a given flow. It is the sum of the static head, friction head, and operating head.
  • Max Flow Rate: The largest volume of water a pump can push out. This element is often measured in gallons per minute (GPM).
  • Solids Handling: The size of materials a pump can pass through, which are typically referred to as spherical solids.
