Gorman-Rupp Suction Lift Pumps

Compelling Reasons to Choose Gorman-Rupp

Low Lifetime Costs

The total lifetime cost of a pumping station includes its purchase, installation, operation, and maintenance expenses. Evaluation all these costs when choosing equipment is crucial, as making the right selection leads to substantial long-term savings.


Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps feature semi-open impellers for handling large solids and can be enhanced with Eradicator Plus™ anti-clogging technology for extreme-duty wastewater applications.

Easy to Maintain

Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps offer simple maintenance with a full-sized cover plate for easy access to clear clogs or replace the impeller. The rotating assembly can be quickly removed using common hand tools for hassle-free servicing.

Safe Environments for Operators

Operator Safety

Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps are situated above ground within an enclosure, ensuring a safe working environment. Maintenance and services are conducted inside the pump room, eliminating confined space risks and exposure to hazardous substances. No electrical wiring or junction boxes are necessary in the wet well.

Life Expectancy

Gorman-Rupp pumps are designed with quality and longevity in mind. They have a remarkable track record, with an average life expectancy exceeding 30 years!

Spare Parts Available Upon Request

Availability of Spare Parts

Gorman-Rupp keeps a substantial stock of spare parts in Mansfield, Ohio, ensuring prompt shipping for most orders. Envirep in Camp Hill, PA, also holds a significant inventory of Gorman-Rupp spare parts.

Premium Efficient Motors

Gorman-Rupp utilizes off-the-shelf NEMA Premium Efficient ODP and TEFC motors. The motor is physically separate from the pump, maximizing motor life and ensuring that a pump seal failure does not cause motor damage. If a motor does fail, a replacement can often be found in stock locally, avoiding the long wait times common with custom or proprietary motors.

V-Belt Driven

V-belt drives offer critical advantages over direct-driven pumps: they allow quick and cost-effective adjustment of the pumping rate by changing belts and sheaves. Additionally, V-belt drives absorb shock during pump startup and stoppages, safeguarding critical components like the impeller, shaft, seal, bearings, and motor from damage.

Peak Pump Efficiency

Gorman-Rupp pumps boast a user-friendly design for hassle-free impeller-to-wear plate clearance adjustment without draining the pump or dismantling drive components. This smart feature maintains design capacity, ensures peak efficiency, and maximizes the life of wear parts.

Pumps and Motors are High and Dry

Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps are placed above ground, providing easy access for inspection and preventive maintenance. The pumps, motors, valves, and controls are housed in a controlled environment with warm, dry, and hazard-free conditions.

Large Inspection Cover

Gorman-Rupp pumps have a large removable inspection cover plate, ensuring easy and swift impeller access in case of clogs. This user-friendly design streamlines the unclogging process.
