At Buildworld, we stock a host of pumps, hoses and accessories such as connectors, starters and taps that complete any water carrying pipe system.
Water pumps are used on construction sites for carrying water for various purposes. Pumps can be powered by electricity, gas or are manual. Designed for use with power drills and hose pipe, these find a range of applications within the home as well from watering gardens, emptying sinks, draining pools and aquariums.
Water Pumps are of 2 types:centrifugal and positive displacement. A centrifugal pump works using a rotating impeller to move water into the pump and discharge flow using the pressure generated. Centrifugal pumps can pump most liquids, even those with low viscosity.
Rotary Pumps or Positive displacement pumps on the other hand function using mechanical contraction and expansion of a flexible diaphragm. These are mainly used to pump liquids that have high-viscosity.
Water Pumps are made out of weather-resistant materials and can be used with suitable hose or pipe using connectors.
Hoses or pipes are made of flexible material and designed to carry fluids from one point to another. Hoses come in many versions depending on their application. Some factors that decide the kind of hose are size, length, pressure and liquid carried.
