An irrigation pump is a pump used for providing water to a section of land. This may be for some reasons, such as making sure a patch of grass stays healthy, or may be used on a farm, where a family's livelihood depends on irrigation. There are several major types of irrigation pumps, depending on the irrigation system, and the overall purpose.
There are many different ways a pump can be used to get water from one location to another. These include displacement pumps, submersible pumps, turbine pumps and centrifugal pumps. The centrifugal irrigation pump is the most common. Choosing the proper pump will often depend on the situation and the preference of the manager of the irrigation system.
