Tip by Stephen
To use this pump manually you can fix the float switch (upwards-facing) to the pump with a tie wrap, tape or string. In case of manual use, make sure the pump is only turned on when the pump actually pumps water.

Product description

The DAB FEKA VS submersible pumps are especially designed for draining waste water and/or sewage water containing larger suspended solids. The maximum permeability of the pumps is 50 mm, which is highly unique for submersible pumps. The pump is made of stainless steel and is therefore suitable for heavy work. This series of submersible pump includes several models, which all different in terms of power and capacity. We have included 4 of these pumps in our range, representing the entire DAB FEKA VS series. From the light FEKA VS 550 to the heavier FEKA VS 1200.

This pump has a float switch, which means it automatically switches on and off based on the water level.

  • Switches on automatically when the water reaches 39 cm
  • Switches off automatically when the water reaches 20 cm
  • On manual mode (when the float switch is fixed/held), this pump will pump the water to 8 cm

Are you looking for a pump that leaves less water / switches on automatically sooner? In that case, you should choose a submersible utility pump.

Stainless steel / Inox

In some situations, stainless steel, which is also called Inox steel, can be very handy, and is prescribed in particular with regard to drinking water. Drinking water must remain pure and may not contain corrosive elements, which is the reason that stainless steel is used. Furthermore, a stainless steel pump is also resistant to lime, which tends to stick to surfaces, but is not able to do so with smooth, stainless steel surfaces. Cast iron is usually the counterpart of stainless steel, but these pumps are prone to corroding and are therefore used mainly for irrigation. A final advantage of stainless steel is that it is lighter than cast iron and is therefore easier to move.


DAB is one of the best-selling brands of water pumps for consumers as well as for professionals. These pumps adhere to a very high standard of quality, with each pump being tested manually by a staff member before it is put on the market. This is the only way DAB can guarantee that you obtain the absolute best. They have a solution regarding almost any situation, whether it involves an industrial application or simply spraying a garden. DAB's professional quality is also reflected in its consumer line. The DAB pumps we replace for people are usually over ten years old.

Float for automatic activation / deactivation

This submersible pump is fitted with a float, which ensures that the pump is switched on and off automatically. Each pump has its own variables relating to the level at which the pump switches on or off. Robust wastewater pumps usually have a high level of activation and deactivation. They will start operating relatively late and stop relatively soon, unlike puddle pumps, which switch on sooner and switch off later. Check the pump's specifications for these variables. There are three types of floats: a floating one, which is attached to a cable; a float arm; and an integrated float. The first type needs more space because it may float in any direction, while the float arm needs less space, as it only moves up and down, and generally has higher operational reliability. Finally, there is the internal float, which is integrated in the pump and therefore needs the least space. We see these internal floats mainly in puddle pumps, because they need to operate in small spaces.
