What do you need to know before buying a new pump? Whether you are checking out water pumps or want to save a few dollars on a motor, knowing where to find the best products will save you a lot of hassle. The best motors for your project will depend on many factors like the application, your budget, and how much power you need. Electric pumps and motors play an essential role in any home or business. Learn what you should look for when purchasing a refurbished pump or motor. 

What Water Pump Suits Your Needs?

Before you purchase a refurbished pump, you need to understand the basics. There are two main types of water pumps: centrifugal and axial flow. Both work by using pressure to push water through a pipe. However, there are differences between them. 

Axial flow pumps use impellers to force water through the pump. This type of pump is more efficient than centrifugal pumps because it uses less energy. On the other hand, centrifugal pumps are cheaper and easier to install. They’re also quieter than axial flow pumps. If you aren’t sure which works best for your needs, contact LN Electric and our staff will be happy to answer your important questions.

How to Find the Right Refurbished Motor

Buying a refurbished motor isn’t as easy as it sounds. It’s not just about finding one that fits your needs; it’s also about making sure you’re getting a good deal.

And if you need help with installation, ask one of our staff for more information.
