Product description

The DAB Nova Up 180 M-NA is the ultimate submersible puddle pump for clean or slightly dirty water, capable of draining areas to 0-1 mm. It's the only one of its kind capable of draining spaces that dry (see video below). The top outlet allows the motor to cool sufficiently. The pump is not fitted with a float and therefore can be set up conveniently in very small areas of 16cm in diameter or more.

What makes the DAB Nova Up 180 M-NA unique is that this pump has an air outlet. Once all the air has been released, the pump will start operating at full power. The pump can also be used from 5 mm of water and up, which makes it suitable for practically any situation that involves flooding.

By removing the strainer, the DAB Nova Up 180 M-NA can also be used as a puddle pump. The strainer can be removed easily, using a screwdriver to disconnect it from the three recesses. The DAB Nova Up 180 M-NA is then placed directly on the surface and can serve as a puddle pump.

Water level

This pump is not fitted with a float switch, which means that it does not switch on/off automatically based on the water level.
If you are looking for a pump that switches on/off automatically, you can opt for a submersible puddle pump with a float switch, such as the DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE.


  • High-quality DAB brand pump
  • The hose that can be used for this model is 1" or 1.25" in diameter
  • A maximum delivery head of 5 metres
  • Drain a space or swimming pool to 0-1 mm of water, leaving it 'mop dry'.

Mop-dry surfaces (puddle pump)

This pump is capable of draining flat surfaces, but not every submersible pump is a puddle pump. If you are dealing with flooding and want to drain a space 'dry', you will need a puddle pump. Some models can even drain water to a level of 0 to 1 mm. This type of pump is often used for cellars, crawl spaces, or basements, and may be a perfect solution if groundwater rises and floods your house or garden. There are two ways to use a puddle pump. If it is fitted with a float, the pump will be able to drain to a level of about 4 cm. However, only in manual mode is the puddle pump able to 'drain dry', which means you need to switch the pump off yourself when it no longer processes water. This is important because the pump cools itself with the water it pumps. Therefore, to avoid the pump becoming damaged, it must be set to manual mode to drain surfaces 'dry'.


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.
