  • From Cornelius garage to Forest Grove storefront – Clearwater Pump Services Q&A with Oregonlive - *David Parson, owner of Clearwater Pump Services, will open a store that sells irrigation equipment on March 4 in the building where his crew currently operates. From Cornelius garage to Forest Grove storefront: Q&A with Clearwater Pump Services owner David Parson. When David Parson went on a call to repair a woman’s pumps, he was surprised to hear the woman ask if he were related to Wilbur, his grandfather. Parson, who started fixing pumps in high school, had worked in his family’s business before starting his own in 2012. The woman explained that Parson’s grandfather had helped her fix a pump 15 years ago. Parson looked just like him. “She didn’t know him,” he said. “But that’s the kind of impact that you make.” Since November, Parson and his five-person crew have operated his irrigation repair and installation business, Clearwater Pump Services, out of the 6,000 square-foot industrial building on Douglas Street in Forest Grove. On March 4, the 35-year-old will open a store that sells irrigation equipment. “These guys are part-electrician, part-plumbers,” Parson said. “They are the jack of all trades and the masters of none.” The Forest Grove Leader caught up with Parson on Wednesday to see how Read more about From Cornelius garage to Forest Grove storefront – Clearwater Pump Services Q&A with Oregonlive[…]

  • Clearwater Pump Helps Local Growers Comply with Good Agricultural Practices “G.A.P.” Requirements. - As more and more concerns arise for the liability of produce growers and the safety of fresh market consumers, growers are searching for effective and simple ways to comply with GAP requirements. One of the more challenging and growing concerns is chlorine disinfection on crops. GAP is requiring that chlorine is run upon the produce prior to harvest to disinfect and reduce the risk of spreading bacteria such as ecoli. Recently, we installed a chemical injection pump that will help a local grower comply with GAP and give them the reassurance that they have a simple cost effective way to comply with GAP. It is powered by creating a pressure differential between the intake and discharge and has an adjustable feed rate to help maintain a chlorine residual in the field.
  • Why is my well pump is running all the time? - A common phone call we receive from customers is a complaint that their well pump will not shut off or their electric bill has suddenly gone through the roof. When a well pump is running all the time and will not shut off the most common reason is that the well pump is not able to build enough pressure in the system to tell the pressure switch to turn the well pump off. When this happens there are typically two common causes. The most common cause is a hole in the drop pipe down the well. The submersible pump delivers water from the bottom of the well to the pressure tank through the “drop pipe” that runs from the pump to the top of the well. In most older installations galvanized pipe was used for the drop pipe. As the galvanized pipe sits in the well it can develop what starts as a small pin hole leak and will continue to grow larger. As the well pump delivers water a portion is continually running back into the well preventing the well pump to build sufficient pressure to reach its cut off pressure. When this happens the pump will need to Read more about Why is my well pump is running all the time?[…]
