This is one of the best books in my technical library. If you work with pumps, hydronics, or anything associated with it, you will learn a lot. If you have extensive experience, it's a great refresher, and it tackles difficult subjects like Net Positive Suction Head with ease.
I thought I knew a lot about pumps but the author put me to shame. Third edituon is great. Really not only useful as a resource but interesting to read as well. Although some of the info is available through other resources and i could spend hours on google, much easier to have it all in one place. Defitely a must have if you work with pumps.
I really like the way Volk presented the information without getting into the higher level of fluid mechanics math. I use the book for the engineering technicians I teach and the information is presented with clear understanding. This is one book I have heard student's say they are not going to sell back. The second edition is great with the addition of color.
Excellent resource. I am only about a quarter of the way through the read but when I recieved the book I thumbed through the chapters. Great to have if you do anything with pumps.
