Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: What sets the FACGF pumps apart from other gas engine driven pumps? A: The FACGF pumps stand out due to their robust construction, superior engine performance, and versatility in application. They are specifically designed to handle large-scale and demanding tasks more efficiently than standard pumps.

Q2: Can the FACGF pumps operate on multiple fuel types? A: These pumps are typically designed to operate on gasoline, but for specific needs, some models can be adapted to use alternative fuels such as diesel. It’s important to confirm fuel compatibility with the specific model you are interested in.

Q3: How do I choose the right FACGF pump model for my needs? A: Choosing the right model involves assessing your water transfer needs, including the volume and type of liquid to be pumped, the distance it needs to be moved, and the environmental conditions of the operation site. Ken’s Distributing Company experts can help guide you to the most suitable model for your requirements.

Q4: What preventative maintenance should be performed on the FACGF pumps to ensure optimal performance? A: To maintain optimal performance of the FACGF pumps, it is recommended to perform regular engine checks, including oil and filter changes, spark plug inspection, and fuel system checks. Additionally, checking the pump components such as the impeller and the shaft seal for wear and ensuring the intake and discharge lines are clear of obstructions is crucial.

Q5: Are there any specific environmental or operational conditions that could adversely affect the performance of the FACGF pumps? A: Extreme temperatures, both high and low, can impact pump performance by affecting engine startup and fluid viscosity. Additionally, operating the pump in highly corrosive or abrasive environments without appropriate protective measures can accelerate wear and tear. Properly assessing the environmental conditions and choosing a pump with suitable materials and coatings is key to preventing these issues.

Q6: How do the FACGF pumps handle varying water levels or flow requirements? A: The FACGF pumps are designed to handle varying water levels efficiently due to their self-priming capabilities. For varying flow requirements, operators can adjust the throttle of the engine to control the flow rate, making these pumps versatile in applications with changing demands.

Q7: Can these pumps be used with automated control systems? A: While the standard FACGF pumps are manually operated, they can be integrated into automated control systems with the appropriate setup. This integration can involve adding sensors and electronic controls that can start or stop the pump based on specific conditions, such as water level sensors or pressure switches.

Q8: What safety features are included in the FACGF pumps to protect both the pump and the operator? A: Safety features for the FACGF pumps include thermal overload protection for the engine, low oil shutdown to protect the engine from damage, and robust housing to shield mechanical components. Additionally, some models might include spark arrestors on the exhaust to prevent fire hazards in volatile environments.

Q9: Are replacement engines available for the FACGF series, or do I need to replace the entire pump unit in case of engine failure? A: Replacement engines are available for the FACGF series, allowing for the engine to be replaced without the need to replace the entire pump unit. This makes maintenance more cost-effective and convenient, extending the lifespan of the pump assembly.
