Limiting the potential damage of coastal and inland flooding requires a pump solution that is dependable. In terms of a reliable flood control, there’s a lot at stake – initially, the protection of people, their homes, production facilities, crops, and livestock. And in the longer term, proper flood control solutions can prevent contamination of drinking water supply systems, damage to infrastructure and the potential risk of famine.
Solutions you can rely on
Through a combination of technical know-how, industry leadership and solution-oriented product development Grundfos has the pumps and control solutions to cope with these heavy demands.
Our expertise has been built up, through a policy of working with locally-based consulting/design engineers that possess the knowledge, have the history, and know the rules of the game in their markets. And over the years, our experts have designed reliable flood control solutions in each individual case to the benefit of societies all over the world.
Pumps that do the job
Flood control pumping is characterised by a requirement for pump solutions with high flow and low head. The powerful Grundfos range of axial and mixed-flow pumps for flood control are specifically designed for durable use in pumping stations, harbour management and storm water tank solutions.
Storm water tanks
Storm water tanks are an effective way of reducing peak flow and equalising flow rates from storm water runoffs in the sewer system. Our pump and control solutions ensure reliable and automatic operation of storm water tanks, regardless of the size. And once the hydraulic load is reduced and capacity is available, you can get wastewater moving again with perfect efficiency.
Ensuring that flood events can be controlled often requires careful planning. Using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations at the design phase, we can tailor pump solutions that can cope with the heavy demands of moving vast flows of surface or storm water – and guarantee that it works.
With successful flood control projects in some of the world’s most vulnerable cities in Korea, Dubai, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, India, Belgium, Denmark, USA, and many more, we know what the problem is and how it can be solved – and are equally competent at serving customers in both 50 Hz and 60 Hz markets globally.
Expertise in every phase
Grundfos can supply the specialist expertise to help meet your performance objectives, from the initial identification of needs, design, recommendations on duty set up and strategy, installation, operation, and maintenance of the pumping solution. And Grundfos commissioning agreements ensure correct installation and service agreements cover all eventualities, from routine maintenance to spare parts, for optimal operation.

Explore the KPL pump
Explore the latest KPL Axial Flow Pump from Grundfos using this exciting new App. See how the Turbulence Optimiser™ works, see the performance potential, take a look inside the pump and much much more. If you are involved in Flood Control projects then this App is for you.
What’s so special about it?
The App employs a technology called Augmented Reality (AR). This means that the App actually places a digital object, in this case the KPL Pump, in the real world for you to interact with: by pointing the camera lens of a tablet or a smartphone at a marker (in this case a poster), the pump appears and comes to life.
