The design, construction and testing of a single stage centrifugal pump is presented in this project work, electric motor drives the centrifugal pump, which draws fluid (water) from a water storage wall and delivers same through a flow control valve to a tank. The experimental results obtained shows that the tested pump can develop a head, (H) of 30m, volumetric discharge, (Q) of 9m3/hr and the speed of 2900 rpm for an input power of 1.5HP (1.1k). The operation of the pump was observed to be very smooth with low vibration and noise level on the pump and motor respectively, this guarantee the reliability of the pump in service.
