Im working on a reaserch project for school. I decided to research Pumps and engines. How we move water now uses a lot of fuel costing a lot of money. We dont go on a lot of fires but spend a ton of time training guys how to drive. I have a pretty good idea on how the pumps in our department work. With the exception of one they are all 1500 gpm centrifical single stage pumps (ones a 2000 gpm). I was wondering if anyone has heard of any ideas or experaments to pump water more efficiently or using different methods.
thanks for your time,
