The spinning action led to the labeling of this irrigation pump as centrifugal. It’s necessary to prime these pumps and each pump must have water within the casing and intake pipe before it is powered on.
A booster pump is unique because it does not move water to another location. Instead, booster pumps are designed to increase water pressure that’s already moving. Ultimately, the goal of a booster pump is to generate high water pressure.
This type of irrigation pump is attached to a motor mounted above ground by a shaft. The motor ultimately signals the shaft which causes the pump’s impeller to turn inside.
