Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: What makes gas engine driven pumps like the FMIG series a good choice for emergency situations? A: Gas engine driven pumps are ideal for emergencies because they can operate independently of electrical power, allowing them to be used in flood zones, disaster sites, and other areas where power infrastructure may be compromised.

Q2: Can these pumps handle solids in the water? A: While the FMIG pumps are designed primarily for clear water operations, they can handle small amounts of solids. However, for heavily laden water, a pump specifically designed for solid handling would be more appropriate.

Q3: How can I maximize the lifespan of my FMIG pump? A: Regular maintenance, including engine checks, oil changes, and inspections of the pumping mechanism, is key. Additionally, using only genuine replacement parts will ensure compatibility and prolong the durability of your pump.

Q4: What types of fuel can the FMIG series pumps use? A: The FMIG series pumps typically run on gasoline. It’s important to use clean, fresh fuel to ensure optimal performance and prevent engine problems. Always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific fuel recommendations and requirements.

Q5: Are FMIG pumps suitable for continuous operation? A: Yes, the FMIG pumps are designed for robust performance, including continuous operation in demanding conditions. However, to ensure longevity and optimal performance, it’s crucial to follow the recommended operational intervals and conduct regular maintenance checks.

Q6: What preventive measures should be taken to operate these pumps in cold weather? A: In cold weather, it’s important to ensure that the pump and its engine are properly winterized. This may include using antifreeze in the cooling system, ensuring that any water in the pump is drained to prevent freezing, and using winter-grade fuel. Additionally, storing the pump in a frost-free environment when not in use can prevent damage.

Q7: How do I determine the correct size pump for my needs? A: The correct size of the pump depends on the volume of water to be moved, the head (height the water needs to be lifted), and the distance it needs to travel. Consulting with pump experts at Ken’s Distributing Company can help you select the right size based on these factors, ensuring efficient and effective operation.

Q8: Can the FMIG pumps be used in saltwater applications? A: Using standard FMIG pumps in saltwater is not recommended unless they are specifically designed and constructed with materials resistant to corrosion from saltwater. For marine applications, it’s best to choose pumps with corrosion-resistant features or those specifically labeled as suitable for saltwater use.

Q9: How do I troubleshoot common issues with these pumps? A: Common issues with gas engine-driven pumps like the FMIG series include failure to start, low discharge pressure, and rapid cycling. Troubleshooting steps include checking for clogged filters or lines, ensuring the engine has fuel and that it’s igniting properly, and checking the pump and its valves for obstructions or leaks. Regular maintenance is key to preventing many common issues.
