This is an essential desktop sourcebook for anyone who works with pumps and pumping systems on a daily basis. This much-needed reference provides comprehensive, detailed coverage of pump application and pumped water systems as well as a sound working overview of pump design. Written by a hands-on expert with almost fifty years in the field, Water Pumps and Pumping Systems thoroughly examines: NFPA Fire Standards; potable and wastewater pumps; installation, operation, and retrofit; piping system calculations and friction analysis; piping materials; fire, municipal, domestic, water treatment, and industrial applications; tools of design and design analysis; performance issues; and more.This one-of-a-kind, clearly written sourcebook tackles the industry-specific issues and problems you face every day, including: misinformation about the proper operation of variable-speed pumps; old rules that need to be replaced regarding pump speed and allowable velocities in piping; ad, what field experience has taught the author about simple system head curves vs. complex system head areas.
