Do you want to buy a water pump? Maybe you have never thought about the idea before? Maybe, you know that you need a water pump, but you aren't sure which type of pump would best suit your needs. There are lots of reasons that you could be looking at Davey water pumps, and identifying how you would use a pump is the best way to work out which pump would be the best choice for your home. Here are two criteria that can help narrow down your choice of pump and pick the most suitable model.
Will the pump be used for a single purpose?
Sometimes, you will want a pump for a specific purpose that never changes. You might want to regularly pump water from a lake or borehole into your home. If you want a pump for a fixed purpose, you will know the distance you want the water to travel and the pressure at which you want the water to arrive. This information will narrow the selection of suitable Davey water pumps and help you make the best choice. However, there will be other times that you might want to use the pump for a range of purposes. If that is your situation, a more general-purpose pump would be a better option. Maybe, you occasionally want to irrigate crops or wash machinery, and you will move the pump around depending on your requirements?
An emergency pump?
Often, people don't have an immediate use for a pump, but they want to have one available in case an emergency strikes. If you live in an area prone to bushfires, a pump can quickly become a vital piece of equipment to protect your property. If your home is on low-lying ground, it may be subjected to flooding on a semi-regular basis. If a part of your property becomes flooded, a pump is essential to extract the water and allow the drying out to begin. If you want an emergency pump, it may be best to look at Davey water pumps that are petrol-driven. If your home is flooded or fire is approaching your home, it is not unlikely that the mains electricity supply will no longer be available. If you are trying to protect your home and your pump relies on electricity, you would be in serious trouble. For fire-fighting especially, high-pressure petrol-driven Davey water pumps are good choices. They can project a high volume of water and prevent the flames from spreading too close to your property.
