We started Towle Whitney in 1994 and concentrated on becoming a premier builder of water pressure
booster pump systems. In the late ‘90s, we shifted the pump’s control systems from constant speed to the
new variable speed (VFD) systems. It was clear that VFD boosters offered improved performance, lower
horsepower, long term savings on maintenance, and immediate savings on electricity. We were in the right
place when the technology shifted.
Twenty-five years later, we supply everything from small 1/2 HP simplex systems for homes to triplexes for
high-rises. The Variable Speed Drives we use on our booster pump systems mean you save money on energy, upfront costs, and installation. Since the VFDs we use are rated for UL 508, we can eliminate the unnecessary and expensive panels. Since we network the pumps and VFDs to communicate, we can eliminate the unnecessary and expensive PLC controllers. Some companies are still using this old technology so be aware when doing your research. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Our systems are designed with the industry's latest and best technologies. From the booster pumps to the Variable Frequency Drives, our components are hand selected during the design process to provide you with the best components for your application. We work closely with the manufacturers of each of our products to ensure you have the best support possible and any question can be answered.
We strive for great customer service and as a small company we feel it is important to be customer focused. This means you get a live person on the phone for system design, troubleshooting, or any questions you may have about our products. We monitor our emails during nights and weekends to make sure you can get the help you need during our hours.
We provide the best 3-year warranty in the business. You can buy with confidence!
We invest heavily in inventory to make sure we can deliver your booster pump system within a reasonable time frame. Our standard lead time from the day you place the order to the day the system ships is 10 business days. However, 8 out of 10 systems ship within a week. We also have the ability to expedite orders in as little as 1 business day, and the ability to ship systems and components overnight.
Our Gen5 was launched in November 2019, and combines backflow prevention with booster pumps.
We pride ourselves on collaborating with mechanical contractors, engineers, and facility owners. We size up each job, based on its own circumstances (pipe size, incoming pressure, building height, RPZ's, strainers, filters, etc. Every product is tested before leaving our facility.
Thank you for your business, Dennis Whitelaw, President
