The principle of operation and the device
Pump "brook" - one of the most popular pumps vibration type. The central part of the design of this unit - the membrane. When the pump is attracted and repelled by electromagnetic coil built into the pump.
Oscillatory movement of the membrane creates a pressure difference in the pump housing, allowing water to move at a sufficiently greater height.
"Brook" - is submersible pumpThat is to work it must be lowered on a rope into the water. The apparatus is relatively small, only weighs 4 kg. Performance standard model typically estimated as 450 l / hr.
Technically, the pump is designed for pumping clean water, so the product warranty does not cover damage caused by work in difficult conditions.
Pump "trickle" has a compact size, light weight and productivity, which can provide one or two water intake point of the water at the same time
Across durable metallic pump housing installed special rubber ring. It protects the well casing from shock during a dive or apparatus recesses.
For suspension pump may be used nylon cord or twine is strong enough, because the unit weight is small. Of course, you should securely fasten the cable on a string, so it does not fall into the well.
Modern pump model "trickle" equipped with a special sensor. It determines the device temperature, and disconnects the unit when it reaches the critical values. Most of these situations occur, if for some reason the pump was out of the water column.
Protection against so-called "dry run" to prevent equipment damage and prolong service life.
Trickle - inexpensive pump belonging to Groups undemanding vibration pumps capable of pumping muddy water
Like most members of the vibration of pumps Rucheyok available in two versions: with lower and upper water wall
The pump is designed to operate in an unstable supply of power, protected from damage associated with surges
Solid advantage of pumps produced in the CIS, is the availability of parts for repair
Inexpensive wear-resistant equipment
Variety of vibrating units
Compact pumps CIS production
Kit for vibratory pump
Technical parameters of the pump, "brook":
- pumped water temperature - not more than 35 ° C;
- power - 150-270 watts, so its operation is not too much will increase the overall energy costs;
- depth - 40-60 m;
- average efficiency - about 7 l / min.
It should be remembered that the deeper the pump is suspended, the lower the performance. If the pump is immersed for just one meter or less, it can pump water at a speed of 1500 l / h.
The performance of the unit is quite modest. Tenants will have to include water abstraction points in turn: first the dishes, then take a shower, then turn the washing machine. For all needs at once performance "Brooks" may not be enough.
To work with sea water "brook is not intended.
Connection and operation rules
Before, how to install the pump "Brook" in well or boreholeShould perform a number of preparatory activities. To begin to determine exactly at what depth it will be suspended from the pump. It should be reserved by a cord or a rope of suitable length and to provide a cable fixing position during operation of the pump.
Each pump "brook" is completed with the data sheet. Before you install the device manufacturer's recommendations should be considered carefully and apply
The cord should be strong enough to withstand the pressure in five times the weight of the suspended equipment. In the case of "Brooks" we are talking about approximately twenty kilograms.
Do not neglect this point, because the pump can be a real catastrophe had fallen into the well. Yes, and from the well to get ripped off technique - not the most fun.
It is not recommended to suspend the vibration technique using a steel cable, such as bad design combined with vibration exposure arising during operation.
In order to partially repay the vibration, the pump is attached to the cord on the suspension of a strong and elastic rubber piece which also need to be reserved in advance.
you should use a strong nylon cord for hanging the pump "Brook", can withstand five times the load. If the bundled cord is not long enough, you need to purchase a new cable capacity is unacceptable
Another required element - the hose through which water will flow upward. Its length should match the depth of immersion of the pump and the diameter of the hose must be suitable to the pump nozzle.
However, there are adapters that allow secured to the hose nozzle of larger or smaller diameter. The end of the hose to the pipe or on the adapter should be fixed clamp, if other methods of attachment are not provided.
If you use a hose for some reason undesirable or inconvenient, it is possible to use a flexible water pipe made of plastic. It must also be securely mounted on the pipe using a clamp. If all the materials prepared and incorporated nuances can begin to install the pump.
To do this, you need to perform a series of simple steps:
- Unpack the pump "brook", to spread the power cable.
- Attach to the eye of a housing nylon cord with a rubber adapter.
- Attach to the outlet nozzle of the pump of the water supply hose or pipe.
- On the water intake opening for wear special protective filter.
- Carefully and slowly lower the pump in a well or borehole.
- Fix the nylon cord.
- Connect the pump to the power supply.
- Press the power button and check the operation of the device.
When buying a pump "Brook" should immediately clarify the length of electric cable that came with the product. Standard model can be equipped with a cable length of 10, 15, 25 or 40 m, it is reflected in the cost of the device.
If the wires are not long enough, the problem can be solved in one of two ways.
Pump Cable length "trickle" can be 10, 15, 25 or 40 meters. It is best to immediately buy a device with a cable of sufficient length
The first is to completely replace the pump cable with another cable of suitable length. To perform this operation, the pump will have to disassemble and then reassemble again. Sometimes it is easier to increase the cable - to connect to an existing wire long enough piece.
Place the cable connections should be carefully insulated and protected by a special heat-shrinkable sleeve. Complete replacement of the cable is more reliable, as part of the wire immersed in water, remains intact.
But cable extension - less time-consuming procedure. Once the pump is lowered into the water, inspect the resulting system and make sure that the load falls on a nylon cord, rather than cable or hose.
If you decide to build an electric pump cable "brook", you should use a special heat-shrink sleeve to protect the connection point
And cable and hose should hang freely, while remaining not taut. However, it should not be allowed and excessive cable slack, because in the process of lowering-lifting pump it could become entangled, and this will create additional problems.
Correct use of the pump makes it possible to increase its durability and smooth operation. The manufacturer indicates the time of continuous operation of the pump is not more than 12 hours.
This diagram graphically presents the order of installation of the pump such as "trickle" depending on the model, which may be the lower or upper wall water
The appliance should be turned off to cool down. Manufacturers also recommend to arrange short breaks every two hours of the instrument. Such a gentle mode of operation have a positive impact on the resource of the instrument.
When hanging the appliance, be aware that it should be placed approximately 0.5-1 meters from the sandy bottom, or it may simply tighten in the sand or silt layer.
The main advantages and disadvantages
The popularity of the submersible pump "brook" is simple: at a relatively low price of this device has a sufficiently high quality. But this is not its only advantage. "Brook" is extremely simple to operate. It it should be in any way specially configure, just press the power button and it will start working.
This diagram presents the components of the pump components "trickle". In the event of a breakdown device is difficult to disassemble and repair the (+)
Simple pump construction provides exceptional its maintainability. When pump failure not difficult to disassemble, repair or replace the damaged components, then assemble again. All the necessary components for repair are generally available on the open market.
Next "plus" of the pump - a wide range of problems that can be solved with its help. "Brooks" shake not only pure water but also some of the contaminated liquid, although it will shorten its life.
The disadvantages of the pump "brook" include the nature of his work. Continuous vibration exposure may adversely affect the state of a filter well. Vibration destroy sand layer, which increases the rate of penetration zapesochivaniya and may completely withdraw the construction of the system.
Deep borehole, withdrawing water from fractured limestone, vibration is not terrible, but the "trickle" is not intended to digestion with water such great depths. Thus, this type of pump is not suitable for continuous operation in the sand on the wells. However, diversion of water from the well Such equipment can be a real boon.
In the case of using a vibrating pump for draining basement or pumping water from an open source it is desirable to protect the air intake portion. At least that's such a self-made filter from a plastic bottle
"Brook" for all occasions
Relatively shallow wells with low production rate of a well or with similar characteristics to provide the best pump "trickle" or other budget model. More powerful and expensive hardware just is not necessary here. It will devastate a well too quickly, the risk of "running dry" is very high in this situation.
The product data sheet says that the pump is only designed for the digestion of pure water. However, over the decades of the model, owners of private homes and summer cottages found this device the most diverse applications. For example, this model is widely used in pumping wells.
In this table the main characteristics of the pump "trickle", through which the unit is able to cope with the solution of the set of business tasks
Upon completion of drilling of such facilities remains highly contaminated water particles of silt, sand, etc. To obtain potable clean water, this mixture is to be performed.
Practice has shown that the "trickle" copes with this task. Pump device Rucheyok feature consists in the fact that it has no moving parts. So it does not clog too quickly when working in contaminated water.
Periodically, the pump is removed, disassembled, washed, perform the necessary repairs, and then harvested and allowed to enter the business. Of course, the wear rate increases considerably in this treatment. It is not surprising that in the process of pumping the well pump can be completely out of order.
To clean a single well, depending on the situation, you may need two, or even three or four such units. But the money is coming out much cheaper than buying special equipment with high resistance to wear.
Inexperienced site owners sometimes feel that the well can be pumped with the help of the pump, which will supply water to the water supply at home. This is absolutely the wrong decision.
Owners of boreholes and wells occasionally have cleanse our facilities. In these cases, a pump of this kind is indispensable. It effectively cope with pumping contaminated water from a well or borehole.
If the pump is at your fingertips, all the work will be carried out much faster. If the well silted or zapesochena, vibration caused by the "Brooks", turned into an enemy of the other.
It looks like a pump, "brook" unassembled. Robust steel housing protects the device from external influence and frequent breakdowns
Quality and price submersible pumps usually designed for continuous operation it with clean water. Rocking abundantly sand contaminated water was better with the "rivulets" fiscal or other techniques. If after pumping wells some "Brooks" was able to "survive", he was sure to find further use.
Vibrating effects allows you to quickly and effectively destroy the slimy cap, clean the holes well screen and pump the mud on the surface. As a result, well production will increase significantly.
To clean silted wells is recommended to use the model of the upper wall of water.

The most common maintenance operations consist in replacing worn seals and deformed fastener
pump disassembly is combined with the cleaning of filters and applying a lubricant on the friction elements against each other

Reassembly vibratsionnika Brook
Gathering dust in the barn, "brook" will be a real boon if the main pump in the well or sump for some reason breaks. He would be an acceptable temporary replacement, allow a few hours to restore the water supply in the house. At the time of repair of the main pump will not have to purchase or lease new equipment.
Waterlogging drainage water cellar, inspection pit in a garage or other similar depressions - an unpleasant situation. And in order to empty the unnecessary liquid by means of a bucket, it will need a lot of time and effort.
Since the drainage of water generally contain not too much pollution for their evacuation ideal pump "brook".
Cheap compact vibratsionniki to be cleaned using water intake structures. They slurried silt at the bottom of the wells and wells, which are then pumped drainage pumps
Of course, he works slowly, but steadily. Expect from drainage water perfectly clean, of course, is not necessary. To improve the operation of the pump is recommended to use a special extra filter that will protect the structure from contamination.
The filter is made in cap shape and is intended for the upper part of the pump. To put it on, we recommend that you warm up this element. Then install the filter will be done much faster and easier.
When building a swimming pool or other water capacious reservoir, pump "trickle" can be used for pumping water from such tanks. In this case, it makes sense to use the model "Brook-1M". Unlike other models it is provided with lower water wall, which allows to remove the water from the tank completely.
Use of "trickle" pumps and the installation of heating systems - namely, for pressing, when the required water filling system. Water can be taken from a well or bring in a separate vat.
At the intake port of the pump hose and put it in the water is lowered. The second hose is inserted onto feed pump tube, attached to an open drain cock heating system.
With track gauge pressure in the system. After crimping eliminate the identified faults. In general we can say that the type of "trickle" pumps can be used for virtually any application in fluid pumping or pumping it to the destination. The main requirement - the water should not be too dirty.
The main advantage pump "brook" and similar models is in the budget price. They do not mind "throw" on the implementation of the "dirty work". At failure of the device is simply changed to the new
Modifications and similar models
Three models of the pump can be found on the market: "Brook" (Production of "Livgidromash", Russia) "The trickle-1" and "Brook-1M" (Production of "Tekhnopribor", Belarus).
By design, they are very similar, but there are some differences. Thus, the model "trickle-1" is provided with upper water intake system, which allows to obtain the maximum safe drinking water.
And here at the "brook-1M" hole for the water intake is located at the bottom. Using this model, it is more convenient to carry out pumping water from tanks that need to be emptied completely. Since the models "trickle" and "trickle-1" produced water intake from above, the construction itself serves as a reliable protection against overheating.
The water flowing into the pump body, simultaneously cools the engine. During testing, it was confirmed that this type of device can withstand mode "dry run" for seven hours. In this case, the motor windings do not burn.
Not all pumps are even more expensive and productive, can boast this level of stability. At long-time operation of the pump without water for many other models of electric motor just burned.
Pump "Omnigena-Dorota" - a worthy analogue of "Brooks", designed and manufactured in Poland. It is of high quality and good performance
can not remember among similar pump "rivulets" pumping equipment "Kid". It is very close to the "Brooks" and the technical characteristics, quality and performance, and maintainability.
This technique produces Bavlensky Plant "Motor" and AEK "Dynamo" (Moscow). Some of the indicators have "kids" a little better, but the price is slightly higher than that of the "Brooks"
Among the lesser-known counterparts worth mentioning UNIPUMP BAVLENETS - Russian brand, which is produced in China. The study of the technical characteristics of the unit indicates that it is not much different from the more famous "Brooks".
Price characteristics of these pumps is also almost the same. Value at one and the same pump can be varied depending on cable length.
An interesting alternative could be Omnigena-Dorota - submersible pump vibration produced in Poland. How it works and the device is not much different from the pump "brook". Unless aluminum shell is slightly shorter, and weight of the pump slightly smaller.
Power model is 300 W, and it can be immersed for 50 m. Reviews as Polish pump quite satisfactory.
Conclusions and useful videos on the topic
Here you can see a practical example of the pump of the brand:
In the video clip is shown a schematic diagram of the pump, its technical parameters and features are designated using the "rivulets":
Pump "brook" - a tireless worker and a loyal assistant for all owners of villas and private plots.
Of course, its performance is not too large, and it is not intended to address the global challenges of cleaning. But where the need to pump water or to clean the well, "trickle" may be the best option.
