New to Caravanning - Your Essentials Checklist
Boats, caravans, and motorhomes use 12 volt pumps in several applications. Fresh water (Potable/drinking water) supply pressure and delivery is maintained by pumps. Sewage or effluent water may be removed with the help of a pump. But what type of pump should be used in a particular application?
All pumps work on the principle of creating a vacuum into which liquid is drawn. Liquid moves into the pump because of the air pressure on the surface of the large body of liquid into which the pump is placed or connected with by an intake pipe or hose. There are two basic ways in which that vacuum is created, and these differences are reflected in centrifugal pumps and diaphragm pumps.
Centrifugal pumps are very simple. A rotating impeller inside the pump forces water away from the centre of the passage, thus creating the vacuum. This design makes them cheap to manufacture, easy to maintain, and submersible. However, they are usually not self-priming, and can't handle many solids in the liquid matrix. They also cannot maintain an even pressure. There is a seal which prevents water from leaking into the motor. If these pumps run dry for very long the seal can be damaged.
Marcle Leisure can supply various pump accessories such as additional filters, tubing, foot switches, non-return valves, expansion tanks (accumulators), and inline pressure switches.
Many 12 volt pump options are available from Marcle Leisure for caravan, motorhome, and small boat applications. By paying attention to the various types and brands of pumps and their capabilities the owner of a recreational vehicle can meet any need associated with the movement of liquids.
