Clean, potable water is the lifeblood of every community. Without clean water, populations must endure hardships such as waterborne diseases. Water treatment plants process water from the ground, lakes, streams, rivers, etc., and treat it to a potable state. Fairbanks Nijhuis offers a large stable of pump designs used throughout water treatment plants, including vertical turbine and vertical propeller pumps used to get the water from the source to the plant an d end suction and split-case pumps used to move water from one step in the treatment process to another. Discharge sizes range from very small to very large in order to meet requirements of water treatment plants both large and small.
