Feature: BPMA pump search to help end-use customers (updated)

The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) is looking to boost consumer confidence and streamline purchasing.

The association is trying to highlight the initiative to increase awareness of the importance of choosing the right pump for a specific task and when to upgrade.

Old pumps not only consume too much energy, they are also prone to failure which can adversely affect maintenance budgets and in turn business performance. By replacing them with new, correctly sized, energy-efficient pumps, end-users will enjoy reliable, low-cost pump operation, according to BPMA.

To help consumers with pump selection, BPMA has developed a comprehensive online pump selection search facility, which is available for anyone to use.

This online search facility can be accessed via the existing BPMA website and is free of charge.

Only BPMA members are displayed on this search engine; all BPMA members have agreed to adhere to the BPMA Code of Conduct. The association claims high quality, fully compliant, energy efficient pumps from its members.

Update 17:30, 11/01/2018: a previous verison of this article incorrectly stated that the BPMA pump search was a new service. It has been in operation for over a decade.
