There is a huge difference between having to pump water out of a location, and removing slurry. As most people know, slurry is not exactly the easiest substance to pump out of a location, and it is because of this that you have to make sure that you have the right tool for the job. Failure to do so will lead to you not being able to complete your job, and even damaging the equipment to near irreversible measures.
What is Slurry
First thing that you have to do is realize, what is slurry? Slurry is a thin sloppy mud, or any fluid mixture of a pulverized solid with a liquid. Slurry behaves in the same way as a thick fluid, which flows under gravity.
Slurry can form from a mixture of different materials, such as soil, manure, cement, etc. with water. This is what makes the substance into a soupy mess that, as a thick liquid, that means they need to be handled.
What Kind of Pump?
A slurry pump needs to have thicker vanes and be more heavy duty. These pumps need to be able to deal with the general wear and tear that can accompany a job involved in pumping slurry, and the debris located within the substance; it will also have to be powerful enough to reliably transport the substance. You will want to invest in a heavy-duty slurry pump in order to reliably complete such a job.
When it comes to our pumps, you cannot go wrong with the Double Diaphragm Pump (4”). This pump is excellent for any substance that you can throw at it, cesspools, septic, small well-point systems, this bad boy is durable and reliable.
