Pumps are manufactured to operate in a wide range of conditions. However there are always circumstances which necessitate some tailoring to fit them into the individual installation's particular situation and for this a number of pump accessories are available. They cover a wide range of requirements including heat pump accessories, pool pump accessories and water pump accessories. More specific categories include:
Valve, Flange and Union Sets – for connecting a pump into the water system being installed.
Relay Kits – for twin pump operations, allowing the automatic switch over between the pumps.
Insulation Kits – to insulate a pump used in either heating or air conditioning installations.
Shower Pump Accessories – including flanges to purge air from shower circuits and negative head kits for installations where the pump is located above the cold water supply.
Pulsation Dampeners – aids the free flow of water in a system by reducing pulsation and maintaining a steady pressure in the system, thus reducing noise and vibration.
Other Categories – include accessories for borehole pumps, submersible pumps, vertical stage and booster pumps.
