Feb. 21, 2007

Parsippany, N.J. - The Pump Systems Matter educational initiative announced plans to collect accounts from the pump industry on how pumps are applied, run and/or maintained incorrectly on its website,

By logging on to the website, visitors can share their stories about the daily difficulties of maintaining and running various pumping systems from all different markets. These accounts will be chronicled in a document entitled "People Do the Darndest Things to Pumps!" and may help in the development of a pump systems optimization guidebook.

"People Do the Darndest Things to Pumps!" is intended to be a collection of anonymously contributed stories from reputable pump industry professionals that show common mistakes pump users make when running or maintaining systems. Often, these mistakes lead to wasted energy, production losses, excessively high maintenance costs, and safety and environmental concerns.
