Pump Information

Control Panel

Panel Manufacturer:
Panel Part Number:
Be sure panel is securely mounted:
Measured Incoming Voltage at Terminal:
Panel Amp Range:
Supply Voltage Wire Gauge Size:

Check all field and manufacturing wiring in the panel to be secure on the terminal block.

Functional Draw Down Test

This test will determine the gallons per minute (GPM) produced from the pumps in this application.
  1. Fill the basin with enough water below the inlet to run a pump for a period of one minute. If this is not possible, you can run for 15 or 30 seconds then multiply that out to meet one minute.
  2. Using a tape measure, measure from the top of the basin lip down to the top of the water level.
  3. Using the HOA switch, put in HAND to manually run the pump at the same time using a stop watch to track your time limit.
  4. After one minute, measure again from the top of the basin to the water level.
  5. Once you have the GPM calculated, use the provided performance curve included in the pump packet to determine where the GPM falls within the curve and it's correlating TDH.

Gallons Per Inch Reference Guide

Round Basin:
3.142 X radius square then divide by 231
    Example - 72" dia. basin: 3.142 x 36 x 36 = 4,072 cu in.
        4,072/231 = 17.63 gallons/inch

Square/Rectangular Basin:
(Length x Width) / 231 = gallons/inch
Round Basin Dia. Gallons/Inch
