AYU: Knowledge at Your Fingertips

  • How do I size a jet pump?
  • What’s the difference between PSI and inches of water column?
  • When did ball valves come into existence?
  • Where does the pressure reducing valve lie on the northern and southern water service lateral installations?

You know all those questions you had when you first entered the industry, and even decades into the job? Well, we’re here to finally answer them.

The industries that A.Y. McDonald serves – water works, pumps, plumbing, and high pressure gas – consist of centuries worth of history and knowledge. It’s information that is very rarely written down, located in one place, and not available for just anyone to access…until now.

As a result of the many Innovation Summits held in recent years, the concept of A.Y. McDonald University (AYU) was born. By organizing our vast knowledge and experience, this FREE e-learning platform is an educational opportunity not often found in our industry. And now, after over a year and a half in the making, the AYU team is finally ready to release AYU to the public.

Housed at www.aymcdonaldu.com, these courses are ready to be viewed, clicked through, and read by you. Use your desktop, iPad, or smartphone – it all works the same. Whether you’re in the field or at the office, AYU is knowledge available 24/7 right at your fingertips.

So what are you waiting for? With countless hours spent organizing the thoughts of A.Y. McDonald industry experts, we finally have something to show for it and we proudly call this project ‘A.Y. McDonald University’.

Enjoy!
