Information about the Pump Guy Seminar of 2013, which was held on January 15-17, 2013 in Decatur, Alabama, related to the functioning of the pumps is presented. Topics include operating a pump to its best efficiency, impact on the pump on not driving in accord with the gears and dual-volute pump casings that equalizes the radial hydraulic forces around the pump impeller, expanding the operating window of the pump and relaxing the load on the pump's radial bearings.
