May 15, 2010 – Thompson Pump & Manufacturing Co., Inc., held their 20th annual Pumpology School April 21-23, at their corporate facilities in Port Orange, Fla.
 
Thompson Pump hosted more than 40 attendees from 15 states and three countries. The three-day workshop included training sessions for sales and service-oriented professionals on pumping fundamentals, dewatering and bypass applications, selecting the correct pumping equipment, designing, installing and maintaining pumping systems, troubleshooting, pump maintenance, and more.
 
Pumpology School offers hands-on demonstrations and classroom training from industry experts. Upon completion of training and successfully passing a comprehensive examination, attendees are recognized as certified Pumpologists at an awards ceremony.
 
"Our Pumpology School allows us to share our expertise about pumps and pumping systems and we raise the knowledge quotient across a wide spectrum of applications, markets and territories,” said Bill Thompson, Thompson Pump president. “The training is geared to address the requirements of engineers, sales representatives and operating technicians.”
 
Thompson Pump sells and rents their entire line of pumps to the areas of public works, municipalities, construction, agriculture, dewatering, mining, sewer/lift stations, and water/waste water. Types of pumps engineered include wet prime trash pumps; dry prime trash pumps with compressor-assisted or vacuum-assisted priming systems; sound attenuated pumps; utility trash pumps; diaphragm pumps; hydraulic power units with submersible pump ends; electric submersibles; rotary, vacuum and piston wellpoint pumps and high pressure jet pumps. With these different types of pumps, as well as a full complement of accessory hoses and piping, Thompson says it can offer the proper pump and system for any application. In addition, Thompson provides engineering services and special applications consulting for complicated wellpoint, bypass or multiple pump systems; and offers thorough pump and dewatering education and training through its Pumpology courses.
 
The company achieved ISO 9001 quality certification for their Port Orange manufacturing facility. Thompson Pump says it is one of only a very few pump companies to have obtained ISO 9001 certification. The globally recognized certification was granted following independent testing and assessment of the company’s quality management systems and manufacturing capabilities.
