A waste water pump is often used in construction. For example, heavy rainfall may create large puddles that interfere with work activities.  Besides construction, home owners may also be affected by large waste water floods in cellars. You will likely be forced to purchase a waste water pump to resolve such a situation as quickly as possible.

Waste water pumps are available in different types and sizes, with each pump having its own advantages. Waterpump.co.uk's range currently includes sixwaste water pumps , suitable for almost any situation.

Looking for a waste water pump? We will gladly help you find the right one! Please take a look at the  pump configurator  on our homepage. After you fill in your wishes and requirements, a suitable pump will be presented to you, allowing you to make the correct purchase.

Permeability of suspended solids

The most important aspect of a waste water pump is its permeability of suspended solids. Suspended solids come in different sizes and not every pump can handle all sizes. Larger suspended solids can cause serious damage to your pump. For example, when the pump inlet becomes blocked by a suspended solid, causing the pump to run dry and eventually overheat. With all its consequences.

Therefore, always make sure that the waste water pump you purchase can handle the largest suspended solids in the waste water you intend to drain. Our waste water pumps can process suspended solids of up to 10 to 50 mm in diameter. This is clearly indicated for each waste water pump.

When processing faecal matter (e.g. in a manure or toilet facility), we recommend using the DAB FEKA 600 M-A Submersible Pump. This waste water pump is specially designed to deal with such contaminated water.

Pump capacity

Or: the maximum amount of water a pump can process per hour. Height differences affect the pump capacity. The higher the water needs to be transported, the less water exits the hose per hour. Every waste water pump includes a graph indicating how many litres of water can be processed per hour at each height.

Each waste water pump has a certain pump capacity, referring to the maximum amount of water the pump can process per hour. Need to pump a lot of water within a short time? Then choose a high capacity waste water pump. For example, the Maxima Submersible Pump 24,000 litres per hour.

Head rate

Or: The maximum height at which water can be pumped. This is equal to the pressure at which the pump processes the water. For example: 40 metres equals 4 bar.

Waste water pumps all have a maximum pressure they can reach. This pressure determines the maximum height at which the water can be pumped. Using a simple calculation (10 metres = 1 bar), one can determine the amount of pressure in the pump. The waste water pumps on Waterpump.co.uk have a head rate between 6 and 14 metres. When purchasing a pump, always make sure the pump can provide sufficient pressure to operate at your intended heights.
