How long do vertical turbine pumps last?

If properly installed, a good vertical turbine pump can be expected to give you years of excellent service. With basic maintenance, you can easily get 10-15 years out of a pump, or possibly even more.

However, as with all things, it will wear down over time.

What is the flow rate of a vertical turbine pump?

Enclosed-impeller mixed-flow turbines typically have three or more stages and can handle flows up to 30,000 gallons per minute (GPM).

Open mixed-flow impellers are larger and capable of handling flows exceeding 100,000 GPM but are usually limited to a single stage (occasionally, two-stage designs are used).

What are the characteristics of a vertical turbine pump?

Vertical turbine pumps are made up of a motor, discharge head, and at least one rotating impeller that is attached to a shaft that directs water into a diffuser casing called a bowl.

These pumps work when water enters the pump through a bell-shaped part called the suction bell.
