Jeff Richmond, President and Founder of PumpBiz, Inc., says that he and his staff are always interested in their customers’ vast pump applications and their needs. “We just wanted to reach out and encourage people to let us know the unique or compelling reason why they need to use a pump,” Richmond says. “Then with the submissions the PumpBiz team will select a winner each month to receive a suitable pump to match their application completely free of charge. We are asking people to tell us their story at www.FreePumps.com.”
The applications include the everyday consumer sump pump, contractor dewatering pump and industrial chemical pump, and more unique examples. That includes pumping water back up to a stream’s headwaters to maintain spawning fish, collecting waste vegetable oil for bio-diesel production, and pumping soap into tanker aircraft to fly over troops and de-contaminate them.
Compelling stories also include the simple flooded basement, pumping water in a third-world country, new chemical processes to improve productivity and operation of a baptismal fountain.
