Saving Water and Energy in Dry Weather Conditions

06/26/2023 | Update

As warm summer weather arrives and drought conditions become a concern in many regions, it's essential for pump owners to understand how they can conserve not only water but also energy while still maintaining optimal pump functionality. Follow along as we share ways to use your Franklin Electric pumping system wisely during drought conditions.



1. Choose the Right Pumping System for Water Efficiency: We offer a range of pumping systems designed with water efficiency in mind. When selecting a pumping system consider variable speed capabilities, as they allow for better control over water flow and reduce energy consumption. Our expert team can help you choose the most suitable pump for your needs, maximizing efficiency and minimizing waste.

2. Implement Smart Irrigation Techniques: During dry weather, every drop of water counts. Incorporating smart irrigation techniques can significantly reduce water usage while still ensuring your plants receive enough hydration. Consider installing a drip irrigation system, which delivers water directly to the roots, minimizing evaporation and runoff.

3. Utilize Rainwater Harvesting: Take advantage of natural resources by implementing rainwater harvesting systems. Our C1 Series Cistern Pump, designed with rainwater collection capabilities, enables you to store rainwater in tanks for later use in gardening, irrigation, or other non-potable applications. By utilizing rainwater, you can reduce reliance on the municipal water supply, thereby conserving water during drought periods.

4. Regular Maintenance and Inspection: Maintaining your pump is crucial for optimal performance and longevity. Regularly inspect your pump system for leaks, damaged components, or signs of inefficiency. Even small leaks can result in significant water waste over time. Additionally, ensure your pump is properly sized for your specific needs to avoid excessive energy consumption. Consult our experts for professional assistance in maintaining and optimizing your pump system.

5. Monitor and Control Pump Operation: Take advantage of modern technologies to monitor and control pump operations. Our intelligent pump control systems allow installers to remotely monitor and adjust pump settings using FE Connect. With real-time data on water pressure levels, pumping system performance and energy consumption, you can make informed decisions to optimize efficiency and reduce energy consumption.

As the summer heat intensifies and drought conditions persist, using your pumps and systems wisely becomes crucial for water conservation and energy efficiency. By following the above steps, you can minimize water waste and contribute to a sustainable future.
