submersibles

Tadpole and Keith,

do you remember my job where I used the high pressure pump and you guys asked me why?
Then you posted a link for some submersibles that could do the job? Could you help me out? They will warranty the existing pump, but the customer may spring for a good submersible if I can find one.
has to pump thru a 3" line about 40' and raise 25ft high. I want to keep 4-6k gallons coming down the falls.

thanks,
Bruce

Its 230 volt and the bearing went out on it.
width of the falls.......anywhere between 10" to 2.5ft wide

Easy pro makes a series of pumps called the tb series they are a high head 230 submersible pump. I would suggest the 12000 gph. They are real good pump inline with a shinwaya pumps both are Japanese made. I believe they have a 2 yr warranty...pricy but good in a high head application.

thanks,
I actually saw those and was leaning towards the 16000 I think. First one with a 3" opening to work nicely with what we have there already.
pricey .....yes at 1200 bucks.

With a 3 inch line ur wasting money going to the 16000 pump worse case the 14000 would be tops.. 3 inch is only rated to 13000 gph...

Gregg is pretty much right on.

One possible work-around would be to install a splitter wye at the pump outlet and running a second 3" line. This will effectively give you more flow capacity than a single 4". A Goulds 2 hp high volume will give you 205 gpm at 25'. It is 230v, which fits in with your existing electric service. This pump has a 4" flanged discharge, hence the reference to the second 3" line. Pump is quite pricey, however....$2800+, but Goulds does make one tough pump.

The Easy Pro TM17500 or TB12000 may also work well in this application. Both are 3' outlet and 230v. Both are considerable cheaper than the Goulds with a 2 year warranty.

I would give EasyPro a call and discuss it with them because they can supply a lot of pumps that they do not list in their catalogue (1-800-448-3873).
