Gorman-Rupp Suction Lift Pumps

Compelling Reasons to Choose Gorman-Rupp

When choosing pumping equipment, the focus should be on achieving the best long-term system performance, not just the lowest initial cost. Here are some compelling reasons to select Gorman-Rupp wastewater pumping stations.

Low Lifetime Costs

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


Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps feature semi-open impellers for handling large solids. The pumps 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 is quickly removed using common hand tools.

Availability of Spare Parts

Spare parts availability is a compelling reason to choose Gorman-Rupp. Gorman-Rupp keeps a substantial stock of spare parts in Mansfield, Ohio, ensuring prompt shipping for most orders. Envirep located in Camp Hill, PA, also has a significant inventory of Gorman-Rupp spare parts. This is one of many reasons operators choose Gorman-Rupp.

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. Replacement motors are found locally, avoiding the long delivery times.

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. They also absorb shock during pump startup and clogging, safeguarding critical components like the impeller, shaft, seal, bearings, and motors from damage.

Pumps and Motors are High and Dry

Gorman-Rupp suction lift pumps are conveniently located above ground to provide easy access for inspection and preventive maintenance. The pumps, motors, valves, and controls are housed in a warm, dry, and hazard-free environment, perfect for operators.
