Designed to operate submerged in the fluid they are pumping, submersible pumps are ideal for wastewater management, deep well water extraction, pond aeration, and flood and groundwater drainage. Applications span from domestic water supply and sewage treatment to industrial dewatering, water feature supply, construction, and agricultural irrigation.
Submersible pumps include puddle pumps, bilge pumps, sump and well pumps, sewage pumps, grinder or cutter pumps, and borehole pumps. Some are specifically engineered for clean water, while others can handle water laden with sand, soil, or larger particles.
Submersible pumps are typically either manual or automatic. Manual pumps must be turned on and off by the user or externally fitted control gear. Automatic pumps are fitted with a float switch, which turns the pump on and off depending on the water level, offering convenience and protection against flooding without the need for continuous monitoring or external control gear.
