Think Vertical,
Think Johnston

For some it was missed, for others it’s hello. Re-introducing Johnston Pump. Products built with quality not only as a core design feature, but a way of brand life.

Safety first.
Sacrifice elsewhere.

Ensuring everyone’s health with clean drinking water is a serious concern. Fortunately, the JTS pump models are fully NSF 61/372 certified through UL from top to bottom on all wetted parts. There’s no need to take chances on non-certified materials.

* This feature is exclusive to the JTS model.

Something for everyone.

In the 100+ years of Johnston Pump history, we were bound to have added a few models to the product portfolio. From open or closed channel, mixed-flow, and propeller designs with a range of sizes from 6” – 80” [150mm – 2,000mm], flows up to 270,000 USgpm [17,000 l/s], and heads up to 380’ [116 m] per stage, there’s likely a pump to fit your needs.

* JTS model range is limited from 6” – 36” [150mm – 900mm] with flows up to 25,000 USgpm [1,580 l/s].

The solutions you need...your way.
