Fire Pump Systems
Electric or Diesel Fire Pumps
What type of fire pump do I need?

There can be several determing factors...

The water and power supply at your site are the main factors.  Will your pump be drawing from a public water supply, a storage tank or a reservoir?  These variables all affect the pump choice.  Is the electrical supply reliable and inexpensive at your site?  If so, then an electric driven fire pump may be a more economical choice.  If power is an issue then maybe a diesel engine may suit your needs.  Other variables come into play such as the fire protection system's water demand.  Give us a call and let us help you choose the best fire pump system for your site.
