Product description

The DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE is an automatic submersible puddle pump for clean or slightly dirty water, capable of draining areas to 0-1 mm. This is the only model that can be used as an automatic pump for very small spaces with slightly dirty water. Ideal for the cellar.

This pump is fitted with a sliding float switch, with which you can determine at what water level (ranging from 8.5 cm to 25.5 cm) the pump automatically switches on to drain the water.

What makes the DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE unique is that it 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. In addition, the top outlet allows the motor to cool sufficiently.

By removing the strainer, the DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE can also be used as a puddle pump. The strainer can be removed easily by using a screwdriver to disconnect it from the three recesses. The DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE is then placed directly on the surface and can serve as a puddle pump. The pump comes standard with a non-return valve and a hose socket to connect a discharge hose.


  • High-quality DAB brand pump
  • The hose that can be used for this model is 1" or a 1.25" in diameter
  • A maximum delivery head of 7.5 metres
  • Drain a space or swimming pool to 0-1 mm of water, leaving it 'mop dry'.

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 an adjustable water level from 8.5 cm to 25.5 cm
  • Switches off automatically at a water level of 3 cm
  • In manual mode (float switch set at 'manual'), this pump drains water to a level of 0-1 mm.

No pumps are available that switch on automatically before reaching a level of 8.5 cm, because no float switches are reliable enough to operate automatically at these low water levels.

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.

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.
