your cellar dry.
you live in an area with a high water table, or near a river,
or we simply just have a lot of rain in a short space of time,
you might find your cellar flooding. When this happens you obviously
need to remove the water quickly, and this is where a pump is
the best solution.
people want to fit and forget their pump, and therefore the best
option is to put an automatic pump in a sump (hole in the ground).
For pumps with a float switch on a short cable, the sump will
need to be at least 350mmx350mmx350mm. We can offer an alternative
design with an internal float switch for those with smaller sumps.
usually come with 10 metres of power cable and are designed to
function partially (or fully) submerged. These pumps are designed
to pump several metres uphill, so you will just need to run the
hose to your nearest ground-level drain. For their physical size
they are very powerful – they can produce a flow-rate of
around 100 litres (20 gallons) per minute which will empty a flooded
cellar in just a few minutes. They are not tolerant of stones,
lumps of mud, leaves or other solids so be careful to keep your
cellar floor regularly swept. Larger, more powerful pumps are
also available if required and many models are also available
most popular model is the TOP/1
We can supply flexible hose by the metre to suit the outlet size
of the pump, most commonly this is 1” diameter.
