Limiting the Damage of Flooding
Limiting the potential damage of coastal and inland flooding requires pumping solutions that are dependable. Grundfos offers powerful stormwater pump and control solutions that deliver the high flow and low head required by pumping stations for harbor management and in stormwater retention tanks.
We have decades of experience building stormwater control systems and can supply all pumps with monitoring and controls tailored to the application. Our powerful high flow, low head axial-flow KPL, and mixed-flow KWM pumps for flood control are specifically designed for this purpose. In addition, Grundfos can also deliver complete flood pumping stations with all mechanical and electrical equipment and a control and monitoring solution via PLC.
As an alternative, innovative pump gates that utilize powerful axial-flow KPG pumps and can be installed on an existing channel or riverbed - eliminating the need for a reservoir and pumping station.

Starting with the water network, Grundfos supplies cost effective, reliable and energy optimised pumping solutions for raw water intake; pumping, dosing and disinfection solutions for each stage of the water treatment cycle; and pumps and controls for the entire water distribution system, including main and local pumping stations.
For the wastewater network, Grundfos supplies dependable, energy efficient solutions for wastewater transport and flood control, ensuring that downtime is reduced, and risk minimisation is built into the system.
And at the wastewater treatment plant, Grundfos facilitates reliable operation and low total cost of ownership through a broad range of products and solutions for mechanical, biological and chemical treatment.
Submersible Wastewater Pumps & Controls for Modern Demands
Grundfos’ range of grinders, submersible wastewater pumps (from 1 to 650 hp) and control panels are designed to stand up to the toughest applications, reduce energy consumption and allow for simple maintenance. See why our solutions are different.
2-Pole VS. 4-Pole Motors for Submersible Solids Handling Pumps
New technologies have altered how we view mechanical and hydraulic challenges. Historically, in the United States, there has been a broad tendency to specify 4-pole nominal 1750 rpm motors for use on submersible solids handling pumps, however, this approach is changing. Many engineers now prefer 2-pole motors for lower flow/higher head applications. Learn about the factors you should consider when selecting a motor type for your application.
We’re Experts on Pump Controls
A drive can help lower energy consumption at wastewater pumping stations, but a drive on its own is not enough. For an optimized system, you also need an intelligent and complete wastewater control and monitoring solution.
The Grundfos CU 362 (Dedicated Controls), was developed specifically for network pumping stations and allows for system measurement and calculation, and integration with other monitoring, control, and energy optimizing equipment.
