Taking the opportunity to review the situation where there is a requirement to replace a pump is rarely taken. Instead the pump is replaced with a ‘like for like’ pump which means the opportunity to gain efficiency, save energy and improve comfort levels is lost.
When replacing a pump there are several points that should be considered as these will have an impact on whether you are making the best selection including:
- is the pump correctly sized for the current duty requirements
- has the building undergone any change of use since the pump was fitted
- what solution would mean least pipe work modification
- how important is service access
But the most important question of all should be is there an opportunity to replace with a variable speed option that will only work as hard as it needs to? As this can save up to 80%+ of the energy required over a fixed speed counterpart.
Grundfos Pumps have been the frontrunners in developing variable speed technology and can provide you with a wide range of reliable pump solutions plus a wealth of experience. So when the time comes to change a pump, e-place it, don’t replace it with a Grundfos solution.
