Irrigation pumps are one of the best ways of elevating water from various sources.
Victoria’s Irrigation Pump Experts
There are many different types of irrigation pumps available, including centrifugal, submersible, jet, and propeller kinds. In addition to being employed in large-scale agriculture and fire control, they are also used in home watering and lawn sprinkler applications. Irrigation pumps are available in electric or gas-powered types and can draw from a municipal water supply or a natural source, like a lake or pond.
Properly sizing an irrigation pump involves measuring your water source pressure (psi) against the flow (gph) and pressure (feet of head) requirements of your watering system and selecting the pump that will provide the most efficient connection.
Your Irrigation Pump Options with Integra Water
Surface Centrifugal Pumps
Above-ground centrifugal pumps are frequently utilised with shallow or surface-water sources. Additionally, they are employed in irrigation pipelines as booster pumps. Before they can function, they must be "primed," or filled with water.
Deep-Well Turbine Pumps
Deep-well turbine pumps, which are used in cased wells or other situations where the water surface is below the typical limits of a centrifugal pump, do not require priming because its intake is always submerged.
A submersible pump is a turbine pump that is tightly connected to a water-tight electric motor for irrigation applications in agriculture. This removes the requirement for a deep-well turbine pump's long drive shaft and bearing retainers.
Propeller pumps, which come in two varieties—axial and mixed flow—are needed when there is little lift and a large flow rate. An impeller used in an axial flow pump resembles the screw on a boat motor. Turbine-style semi-open or closed impellers are used in mixed-flow pumps.
Benefits of Irrigation Systems
WHAT ARE IRRIGATION PUMPS
Irrigation pumps – or sprinkler pumps – push water from lower levels to higher levels of the ground; thus, letting water flow through channels that need it the most.
Irrigation systems are used in residential, commercial, and agricultural settings. They are responsible for getting water to sprinkler heads. In essence, they help to water plants, lawns, golf courses, and farm crops, to name some of their uses. They are an essential part of efficient farming.
Often, the sprinkler water is pumped directly from water sources such as ponds, wells, streams, and rivers. Water pump irrigation systems are one of the best ways of elevating water from these sources.

Your first step when you realize your irrigation system isn’t working properly will be to check if your fuse or circuit breaker in your fuse box or breaker box has been blown.

I am so happy to have been referred to Jason at Integra by one of my family members who was a previous client. Jason effectively explained recommended treatment plan for our well water situation. Jason was so efficient yet personable enough to make installation very comfortable. Pricing was very fair and our water from the tap is clear and safe. I highly recommend the RO system that we also added, hooked up to our refrigerator. Thank you, Jason!
