Pumps

Our pump rentals are designed to help move muddy water, grey water, sludge or sewage, or other general solids out of the way of site work and your crew. Pumps are ideal for construction, industrial and municipal jobsites. From our trailer-mounted, diesel-powered models to our electric submersible pumps for general household dewatering needs, United Rentals has the right pump to fit your requirements.

FAQs

How high can a ram pump lift water?

  • Hydraulic ram pumps are used to move water uphill without relying on electricity or gasoline. In general, you can estimate a 1:7 ratio, meaning for every foot of drop (head) that you have, you can potentially raise water around 7 foot.

How many types of hydraulic pumps are there?

  • While there are a variety of pump types, there are generally three main types of hydraulic pumps. Gear pumps are typically used for truck-mounted hydraulic systems. Piston pumps are used when high-operating pressures are needed. And finally, vane pumps can be used on utility vehicles like aerial buckets and ladders.

How far can a 1 horsepower pump push water?

  • The first question to ask is if the well is shallow or deep. A shallow well allows a pump to suck water into the well pipe; however, a deep well will not easily allow this. For a 1 HP pump, the push range can vary from 40 ft. to 80 ft. uphill.
