Grundfos, pumps

The most important question to ask when a pump needs to be replaced is if there an opportunity to replace with a variable-speed option that will work only as hard as its needs to — according to Grundfos — and giving the potential to save up to 80% of the energy that would be required by a fixed-speed counterpart.

Grundfos’s advice is that there are several points that should be considered.

• Is the pump correctly sized for the current duty requirement?

• Has the building undergone any change of use since the pump was fitted?

• What solution would mean least pipe-work modification?

• How important is service access?

Grundfos offers a wide range of reliable pump solutions and a wealth of experience to ‘e-place’ pumps
