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.

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.


TIP is a German manufacturer, specialising in water pumps for consumers. They have a very interesting range of mainly Inox or stainless steel pumps, fully tailored to the consumer market. Their products range from high-capacity submersible pumps at highly competitive prices to good stainless steel borehole pumps for situations in which water needs to be pumped up from a level deeper than eight metres. Furthermore, TIP is very good at accommodating the consumer. For example, some pumps come with a kit designed to start up immediately, while others are fitted with handy features, such as a top outlet or a baseplate.

Posted at 30-10-2023 Great solution for emptying a well

I spoke to the Company and got the advice that this was the best solution for pumping out water from a well. Was delivered 36 hours later. Worked extremely effectively with the 20 metres hose. Great pump from a Company that did exactly what it promised-thanks

Pump goes like a bomb. Extremely fast! Also speedy delivery. Everything's excellent.

Posted at 03-10-2020 Maxima 18000 submersible pump

Waterpump, is highly recommended. The ordered Maxima 18000 dirty water pump was delivered real quick. The pump works properly and is used in a drain pit. It switches on several times an hour, keeping the groundwater at a certain level.
