Stephen Tip by Stephen

DAB's Feka VS pumps are built mainly with a view to sustainability and robustness. These pumps always operate under the toughest conditions and are designed for heavy-duty use. Highly suitable for the professional user.

Pros and cons
  • Very robust
  • Switches on/off automatically
  • Very high quality
  • Processes very large solids
  • Resistant to faecal matter
  • Highly reliable
  • Drifting float, which may get caught behind things.

DAB FEKA VS submersible pumps are designed specifically for pumping waste and/or sewage water with very large solids. The pumps' maximum passage of solids up to 50mm is unique within this line of submersible pumps. They are made of stainless steel and are therefore suitable for heavy-duty work. This line of submersible pumps offers several versions that differ in power and capacity/flow rate. Our product range includes four pumps, in which the DAB FEKA VS line is fully represented, ranging from the lightest FEKA VS 550 to the heavier FEKA VS 1200.

Water level

This pump is fitted with a float switch, which means that it switches on/off automatically based on the water level.

  • Switches on automatically at a water level of 39 cm
  • Switches off automatically at a water level of 20 cm
  • In manual mode (fastening/raising the float), this pump drains water to a level of 8 cm.

If you are looking for a pump that leaves less water/switches on automatically sooner, you can opt for a submersible puddle pump.

Summary

  • A-quality submersible pump by DAB.
  • Suitable for heavy-duty work: resistant to faecal matter.
  • The hose that can be used for this device is 2" in diameter
  • The pump's maximum submersion depth is 10 metres
  • Float for switching the pump on/off automatically. Can also be used manually.

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

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.
