A Unique Approach to Testing a Fire Pump

We can’t say we’ve ever tested our fire pumps like this before… 

Recently, one of our service techs was commissioning a fire pump for a municipality. When it came time to verify the pump curve, our customer had a unique idea. They wanted Chamco to work with the fire department and have the pump supply water to a fire truck while the truck pretended to put out a fire. 

We happily agreed and our pump effectively supplied water and had no issues keeping up with the fire truck. In fact, the fire truck managed to turn the 50psi at full flow to 150psi coming out of the fire truck. 

It’s never a dull moment here at Chamco!
