In the last couple of decades, variable speed pumps have made a big splash in the plumbing and water-related industries, and it’s not hard to see why. Whether for domestic or industrial use, electric or diesel pump systems, water pumping accounts for at least 10% of global energy consumption, and most pumps are operating at well below optimal efficiency.
A Grundfos pump is not one singular pump model, but a variety of products which have been designed by the world’s largest pump manufacturer, known as Grundfos. Through the company’s long success and growth, its diverse range of pumps are now seen as an industry-standard worldwide.
At Aline Pumps, we not only provide a wide range of fire pumps, but we also offer a range of power backup systems, specifically suited to providing alternate power to submersible systems. Flooded basements due to a power outage (thus disabling the pump systems) are one of the primary causes of environmental vehicle damage.
Water pump systems are used for many different types of areas, from domestic or municipal use, to uses in commercial or industrial areas. There are also several different applications for pumping water, and as such, there is a need for various application-specific pumps. Two broad categories of water pump types are ‘high-flow’ and ‘high-pressure’ pumps.
We may hear the word ‘stormwater’ often enough, but how much do we really understand about stormwater? Where does it come from and what does it consist of? Where does it eventually go?
If you have a basement or part of your house that is below ground level, have you experienced any flooding? If you have then looking into getting a sump pump might be the next best step you can make. Although that is not the only place where a sump pump can be used, as you can use them in storm drains or a dry well. And if you are on an older property you may even have one connected to your sewer.

Wastewater is a part of modern life for all of us. But we never really think about it when we use the toilet, washing machine, dishwasher unit or having a bath or shower. However, everything we send down our drains is classed as wastewater, and at some point during its journey will be put through a wastewater pump.
Although we may not think of this much, sewage pumping stations do play an extremely important role in providing efficient water and sewage services. In its raw form, sewage isn’t environmentally safe. As such, it must be treated at sewage treatment plants.
Fire pumps are often considered to be the most critical component of a water-based fire protection system because, without a fully functional pump, water-based systems can be rendered ineffective.
