Hear What our Customers Have to Say

Huy is a great resource in aquaculture systems. I have never had a question or a problem he could not answer knowingly.

The entire crew at AED have been top notch. Cindy and staff go above and beyond with locating the right parts and getting what I need on time.

Amy is just awesome! Knowledgable, dependable, creative and detailed orientated. It's always a pleasure working with her.

Huy is the most honest and experienced Aquatics Engineer I've ever met. I work at a fairly large public aquarium and Huy has always taken time to answer questions and has helped us tremendously in the design and maintenance of our Life Support wing. His knowledge ranges from aquaculture, life support, to exhibit design, trouble shooting and everything in between.

Pumps, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly……

Pumps, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly……

This issue’s column is focused on centrifugal pumps.  They are the most widely used water mover in our industry and in most cases the most misunderstood.  In theory, a 2hp pump is supposed to draw 2 HP to operate properly regardless of who manufactures it.  However, not all pumps are equal. Many pump manufacturers “play” with the HP number by not adding in the efficiency of the motor to obtain wire-to-water HP.
