Pentair Myers
Myers was founded in 1870 by Francis and Philip Myers in Ashland, Ohio. The brothers began by building farm implements and then engineered and manufactured the first double-acting hand pump that delivered water on both the up and down strokes. From this modest beginning, the Myers pump line grew and evolved over the decades to include wastewater removal and industrial pumps and systems. In 1960, the Myers family sold the business to the McNeil Corporation of Akron, Ohio. In 1986, the business was acquired by Pentair Inc. of St. Paul, Minn., where Myers is part of this $7.5 billion corporation’s water products group.

The 4VC and 4VCX (explosion-proof) submersible wastewater pumps are heavy-duty 4-in. non-clog pumps capable of passing a full 3-3/16-in. spherical solid. Myers’ rounded-port, two-vane, enclosed impellers prevent solids from binding or clogging and offer high operating efficiencies to cut pumping costs. The 4VC series’ modified constant velocity volute case provides smooth operation over... more

  • The Myers V2 Series is an innovative 2-hp submersible grinder pump designed specifically for use in today's complex wastewater environment. It features an advanced cutting technology and a semi-open impeller design. more
  • The SRA lift-out rail system provides ease of installation and removal for the centrifugal grinder pumps. It uses a cast-iron discharge elbow with an integrated ball check valve. It is available with spark-proof rails for hazardous locations and a polyethylene or fiberglass basin. more
  • The 4RH and 4RHX (hazardous location) submersible wastewater pumps are a good choice when difficult-to-pump fibrous or stringy solids are to be expected. The 4RH/4RHX series provides smooth, vibration-free operation when operating at heads higher than peak efficiency. They are designed for use in municipal lift stations, treatment plants and industrial waste applications. more
