Flood control


A wide range of pumping solutions meet the requirements for high flow at low head, and flood control pumps can be engineered to meet specific requirements.

Limiting the potential damage of coastal and inland flooding requires a pump solution that is dependable. A combination of technical know-how, industry leadership and solution-oriented product development means Grundfos has the pumps and control solutions to cope with these heavy demands.

Flood control pumping is characterised by a requirement for pump solutions with high flow and low head. Powerful axial-flow KPL and mixed-flow KWM pumps for flood control are specifically designed for durable use in pumping stations, harbour management and stormwater tank solutions.

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.
