These pumps are used in over home for pumping cold water and hot water in our central heating system. Other places where the use of a pump is very common are schools. Hospitals, and commercial outlets.

Factors to Consider Before Buying Water Pump 
Whenever you go to the market for buying any product, you have some factors in mind to find the best suitable product for you. Same is the case with a pump as there are so many kinds out there in the market. So, to find a pump that works best for, you must consider some factors which are as follows: 

Maximum Head and Pressure 
The maximum heads mean the ability of a pump to pump water to the longest distance in terms of height. For example, if you buy a pump with 60 meters head then it will be able to pump water at a high distance but the flow rate will be zero. So, keep the height in your mind at which you want it to pump water and then choose a water pump. 

Size of The Inlet 
Another thing to consider is the inlet valve of the pump. Normally, the inlet valve sizes are between 1 to 6 meters depends on the case. Size greater than 6 meters is also available on the market depending on the requirement of the buyer. The inlet valve sucks the water and discharges it through the outlet valve. It means that higher size of inlet valve will be able to pump more water at a faster speed. 

Flow Rate 
Flow rate is used to determine the efficiency of a water pump. It is the calculation of the amount of water in liters per minute. For example, if you want to use your pump on farms or job sites then it should have the ability to pump 2500liters of water in one minute. But if you want to use it in your home then flow rate of 100 to 200 liters per minute will do the job. 

Brand of The Pump 
Well, it should be the first thing to consider. Moreover, the motor or engine will also tell you about the quality of a pump. For finding the best pump brand you can conduct your research on the internet and read the reviews of the users to know about the quality of a brand. You should also know the type of water to pump to find the best one. Because the type of water is also a factor to consider. A pump that pumps water in the house is different from a firefighting pump. 

Conclusion 
Like any other product, you also need to consider some factors to find a pump that best suits your needs. Important factors are flow rate, type of water and the quality of the pump.
