Factors to consider when selecting an irrigation water pump

Before selecting an irrigation pump in Kenya, you have to consider the following:

  1. The pump flow rate. This is indicated in m3.
  2. Total dynamic head. This takes into consideration the frictional loss as a result of the speed of water on the pipes. When selecting pumps and pipes, you should note that:
  3. The smoother the pipe, the less the frictional loss.
  4. The larger the pipe diameter, the less the frictional loss.
  5. Total head reduces as you go up the pipeline, and lighter duty pipes can used towards the delivery points.
  6. Total suction head. Which range between 6m-8m
  7. Water source. (Dam, well, river etc)
