Does a shoddy sprinkler system have you hot under the collar? Get a free T-shirt with your Berkeley, Blue Angel, Goulds, Sta-Rite or Zoeller irrigation pump purchase in July. Pump Express is presenting a summer promotion to draw attention to their varied pump inventory and sizing expertise.
“Irrigation pumps are central to any sprinkler system and with summer lawn maintenance on every property owner’s mind, we’d like to highlight some of the great models currently on the market,” says General Manager Ed Drejman. “For those who’ve put off upgrading a pump or replacing an obsolete model, this presents an opportunity to talk to one of our skilled application engineers.”
Berkeley’s HN Series Shallow Well Pumps, LT2 Series Convertible Jet pumps and LTHH Self-Priming Centrifugal Booster pumps are among the best-selling models on offer during the July promotion.
“In addition to superior quality, Berkeley offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive irrigation pump lines,” says Sales Manager Fred Hettinger. “This time of year our system engineers field a lot of requests from residential and light commercial clients in areas with water sources located less than 25 ft down. Berkeley Jet Pumps are a popular choice for these applications, with the Berkeley HN Series leading the pack for its quality construction and excellent performance.”
“The main thing is to know the location of the water source and how deep it is,” says Hettinger citing Berkeley LT2 Convertible Pumps as top sellers for deep well applications (25+ feet down) and Berkeley LTHH Series Self Priming Centrifugal Boosters as a popular choice in applications ranging from golf course irrigation to boosting domestic water pressure.
Hettinger is part of a team of skilled application engineers who can help customers determine water usage and system demands, factor the distance the water must run into the size of the line, integrate this with information on the electrical source and select a pump that’s perfectly suited to the system it’s feeding.
“A surefire way to improve the efficiency of your irrigation system is to fine-tune or upgrade your pump,” says Ed Drejman. “After that you can put on your free T-shirt and go have some fun.”

The black, 100% cotton Pump Express T-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis from July 1-31. Customers must request the t-shirts and indicate their desired size (L, XL or XXL) when placing orders.

Having an energy efficient starter is crucial. Nobody knows that better than the engineering experts at Pump Express. Recently they were shown a presentation by Gail O’Keefe of Schneider Electric. Gail, a drive specialist, demonstrated the energy efficiency that comes with using Schneider Electric Square D Starters, specifically a VFD, or variable frequency drive.
First, she described the basic operations of an across the line starter, the more inefficient of the two options. “You ever get in your car in the wintertime and your fan belt starts and it squeals,” she asked. “Well, it’s the one pulley slamming the belt into the other pulley. It’s squealing until it synchronizes.” Read More …
