Pumps not just for fire fighting 

Many people think that firefighting pumps are only for firefighting. But that is not true. It can also be used for other purposes like washing farm machinery, irrigation, and many other tasks that require pressurised water. But choose the right firefighting pump kits based on the characteristics of the performance.

Things to consider before buying a firefighting pump

You will need a fire pump with around 100PSI pressure for both firefighting and irrigation purposes. The distance of the water to be pumped and its sheer volume are other things to consider before buying a pump. A pump with a flow rate of 200 litres to 1000 litres per minute is sufficient for domestic use. Maximum Head is another specification to consider which refers to the maximum height that a firefighting kit pumps the water.

The inlet/outlet sizes of a firefighting pump ranging from 1" to 4". These pumps draw water through its inlet valve and disperse it through a discharge valve. All water pumps, be it large one or portable fire pumps have a self-priming capacity. It is the capability of the pump to retain after its very first prime. All water pumps available at Thornado have the self-priming ability.
