Piston and semi-rotary pumps are not yet used very much in construction operations. The membrane pump has retained its place on the construction site as it is safer and less sensitive. Rotary pumps are hardly used in construction operations. Centrifugal pumps nowadays play a significant part on the construction site. They are formed as one, two or multi-channel wheel pumps, and their importance was increased particularly by the development of the self- priming centrifugal pump. The submersible sewage handling pump is also used a great deal because of its low maintenance requirements. Most submersible pumps are formed as one and two channel wheel pumps. Various designs and makes are described in the article which also deals with deep-well pumps (under water pumps). Vacuum pumps and jetting pumps.
