There were no caps and gowns but the Pump Express team did receive certification upon completing the two-and-a-half-day Pump School that Pentair Water conducted at our Bergen County headquarters this week. 

Training specialist Bill Corey led a two-day session that focused on the design, sizing, installation and maintenance of MeyersBerkeley and other quality Pentair pumps.

“We want our customers to understand how the pump works so that they can troubleshoot it themselves,” said Cory. “Sizing is one of the main things we teach so that way it’ll be easier to pick the right pump the first time. If you take the time to learn how to size a pump then you'll know how to toubleshoot.” 

The training was a team effort on the part of Pentair staff, culminating in a briefing on key features and new products led by Senior Sales Rep Bill Beyer. 

“We think we have a high-quality product line and we want to make sure its backed by knowledgeable sales people,” said Pentair’s Karl Felland who audited the sessions along with Senior Sales Reps from Pentair’s Midwest and Northeast offices.

Grinder pumps were in the spotlight during what was essentially an abridged version of the Water Training Institute Corey conducts in Pentair’s state-of-the-art Training Center in Delavan, WI., with special attention given to Berkeley pumps. Internationally renowned for high-quality irrigation pumps, Berkeley boosters are widely used in industrial and municipal applications across the Northeast, where many of our sales, service and repair clients are based.

“A lot of customers call me with a model number,” said Pump Express Inside Sales Rep James Rajao. “Now I can generate a formula based on the gallons-per-minute and head height to determine if that pump model is the best fit for their needs.”
