Water Pumps (42)
Durable construction makes sewage pumps ideal for areas with harsh weather conditions. Electric water pumps are suitable for a variety of other tasks such as gardening, industrial jobs, or supplying livestock with plenty of hydration.
Find a large selection of water pumps that are useful for DIY homeowners, and professional construction and remodeling crews. They come in a variety of model types, including submersible pumps for underwater operation. Depending on your needs, electric water pumps have many features to consider.
Sump pumps help you clear water from an area. You typically use these home water pumps to dry out a basement after flooding. Fast application of a sump can prevent future damage caused by mould, rot, and other factors. These utility water pumps are simple to use by placing the intake hose in the water and running the discharge hose outside. Column pumps have a float that turns the pump on when the water level rises. They can be installed in a basin or low area of a space where water collects.
Another water pump version is a jet pump. You often use these types of water pumps for running water from a well into your house. Jet pumps are suitable for wells that go no deeper than around 7.5 metres, but you can go deeper with proper installation. Jet pumps produce high flow rates. Less common, but no less useful, are drill pumps. You attach them to your handheld drill and a garden hose to run water through pipes to break clogs, or to quickly remove standing water. Their portability is a significant factor.
When selecting a home water pump, one important factor is the horsepower. The higher the HP, the greater volume of water it’s going to move at a time. This reduces the time you spend clearing a job site of flooding. It also gives you more water on demand when pumping from a well.
Most use of water pumps is continuous, with the pump running for hours at a time. The stronger and more stable the base and mounting, the better the machine operates for extended periods. Look for steel bases that are powder coated to prevent rust.
