Water Pumps and Pumping Systems
Water/Wastewater Treatment Applications
by James B. Rishel

Water Pumps and Pumping Systems provides comprehensive, detailed coverage of pump application and pumped water systems as well as a sound working overview of pump design.

Water Pumps and Pumping Systems thoroughly examines:

  • NFPA Fire Standards
  • Potable and wastewater pumps
  • Installation, operation, and retrofit
  • Piping system calculations and friction analysis
  • Piping materials
  • Fire, municipal, domestic, water treatment, and industrial applications
  • Tools of design and design analysis
  • Performance issues
  • And more...
Water Pumps and Pumping Systems tackles the industry-specific issues and problems you face every day, including:
  • Misinformation about the proper operation of variable-speed pumps
  • Old rules that need to be replaced regarding pump speed and allowable velocities in piping
  • What field experience has taught the author about simple system head curves vs. complex system head areas
With almost 200 illustrations and valuable material from the Hydraulic Institute, ANSI, and ASTM, Water Pumps and Pumping Systems offers specialized knowledge and priceless experience that cannot be found in any other water industry reference.
