Whether you're dealing with flooding or you want to drain your pool or hot tub, you need a pump you can rely on. Our submersible water pumps are designed to be used at depth by homeowners and professionals and are perfect for draining both clean and dirty water.
If you need a reliable water pump to drain large quantities of water, you’re in the right place. Whether you need a professional-quality solution to drain a well or a pit, or you want something to keep around the house in case of flooding, our submersible pumps will get the job done.
As the name suggests, submersible pumps work by being fully submerged in a body of water. They turn themselves on automatically using a float switch, which is a small box filled with air. When the pump unit is submerged, the switch will float above it, which starts the pump mechanism. It’s incredibly simple – a tried-and-tested formula that’s decades old!
This has several advantages – for one, the simplicity of the mechanism means that submersible pumps tend to be very reliable. This is especially useful if you’re dealing with flooding, when you really don’t want your pump to let you down. Another big advantage is that you don’t have to wade into the water to start draining it. Just drop the pump in and it’ll start draining on its own and stop when the water drops to a more manageable level. Again, this is particularly useful if you’re dealing with floodwater, where wading into the dirty water can be potentially dangerous.
However, it’s not just floodwater that submersible pumps are great for – they’re perfect for draining pools and hot tubs, too. As they drain the water to a set level, they help you manage your water levels really efficiently.
Our range of submersible pumps includes two models. You can choose between a 400W model and a 750W model depending on your requirements. As you might expect, the 750W model is more powerful and can move more water so it’ll get the job done faster. It’s also designed to handle slightly deeper water. If you know you only need to drain a small amount of water – for example, a hot tub – then you’ll be fine with the 400W model. It can move up to 8000L per hour, which is more than enough to take care of most domestic drainage jobs. However, if you’re concerned about a flooded garage or a room, or if you know you have to drain a large swimming pool, we advise picking up a more powerful 750W model.
Both our submersible water pumps come with optional hoses. As you might know, you can’t just use any old garden hose with a submersible pump. They’re simply not wide enough to handle the high flow rates of submersible pumps, and can’t cope with bits of dirt and debris that can be found floating in open bodies of water. You need a durable flat hose – these hoses are designed to cope with large volumes of water and are extremely hard-wearing.
When you buy one of our pumps, you can choose between pairing it with a 10m hose, a 25m hose, or no hose depending on your requirements.
