…what a great job Jim and Travis did when they were onsite to repair our pump on February 6th.  Their knowledge and experience really showed, and the repair was done quickly and professionally.  They had the right tools and equipment for the job, which really helped and prevented a longer downtime, as the pump was able to be repaired onsite and put back in service the same day…

This is our go to place for all things pump.

I would like to take a moment to recognize you and your staff for going above and beyond to help us with a pump motor issue. The pump motor related to the Fountain/Splash Pad stopped working, which meant no fountain effects for the kids to play in over the hot weekend. I want to mention that Kerr Pump did not supply this unit, but was assisting an out of state vendor.

The staff not only located the motor but had it shipped and installed the next day. Thanks for not only meeting, but exceeding our expectations.  I look forward to working with Kerr Pump on future projects.
