Water pump

According to the Non-domestic building services compliance guide, 2013 edition, published by HM Government, the term ‘water pump’ (dry rotor or direct coupled pump) refers to

...a centrifugal pump driven by an electric motor and generally having mechanical seals. Common pump types include in-line, end suction and vertical multi-stage. The first two are usually single-stage pumps having single-entry volute. By design they can all be used as circulators for all HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) applications depending on configuration and duty.
