Once you have read carefully the information on this page, you will know exactly which pump is best for your purpose.

  • Submersible pump
  • Garden pump
  • Booster pump
  • Borehole pump
  • Circulation Pump
  • Sewer/Macerator pump
  • Lifting station

The submersible pump

A submersible pump is used in the event of flooding, but also for draining cellars, reservoirs, and septic tanks. This water pump can process clean as well as dirty water.

The garden pump

A garden pump is used to spray/irrigate a garden or lawn. This pump works with tap water, but can also process groundwater, pond water, and even ditchwater.

The booster pump

A booster pump is used mainly for increasing water pressure: for example, in a rainwater harvesting system. This pump is activated and deactivated automatically, which makes it really user friendly.

The borehole pump

A borehole pump is used to spray a garden or lawn, but can also be used as a rainwater harvesting system. This pump is extra small and therefore easy to set up, even in a small water source area.

The circulation pump

A circulation pump is sometimes also called a central heating pump. It ensures that a heating system can be supplied with hot water. An energy-efficient pump can save you a lot of money in energy costs.

The sewer/macerator pump

The sewer pump (toilet-waste grinder) is also known as a macerator pump. This pump is placed behind the toilet, and its operation is not dependent on the existing water pipes and drain. It ensures that the wastewater is lifted and drained to a higher level in a problem-free manner.

The lifting station

Last but not least - the lifting station. This pump is used for processing dirty water or wastewater from lower-level spaces such as basements. A lifting station is used in spaces that are situated lower than the sewage system.
