Stephen Tip by Stephen

Put the pump with its simple float switch in the manual setting to drain a space.

Pros and cons
  • Internal float switch
  • Excellent price-quality ratio
  • Top outlet
  • Favourable price for a puddle pump

This pump drains water to a level of 2 mm and is therefore also called a puddle pump. This model is fitted with a built-in float and has a top outlet so that it can easily operate in small spaces (with a diameter of about 20 cm). The float ensures that the pump switches on/off automatically, which can also be done manually.

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 11.5 cm
  • Switches off automatically at a water level of 4.5 cm
  • In manual mode (float switch set at 'manual'), this pump drains water to a level of 2 mm.

If you are looking for a pump that switches on sooner (at 8.5 cm), you can opt for the DAB Nova Up 300 M-AE. 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

Summary

  • Supplied with a non-return valve and a hose socket
  • The pump has a 1.25" outlet, to which the hose we supply can be connected directly
  • The pump's maximum submersion depth is 7 metres
  • The maximum delivery head is 6.5 metres
  • Fitted with a float switch which allows for easy switching between manual and automatic mode

Tallas

The Tallas brand has been around for many years, and has always focused on the consumer market. They have come up with some handy solutions, in particular for garden irrigation and ditchwater or rainwater use. Tallas is part of DAB, and therefore its pumps meet the same high standards, although lighter materials are often used, which makes a slight difference in quality. Tallas is particularly good at providing simple solutions, with which they equip their pumps as standard, and are ideal for many consumers. For example, a built-in pre-filter that protects the pump because it stops dirt from entering it, but also light garden pumps that are fitted with a handle and footrest. This makes them easy to move and immediately available for small irrigation jobs.

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'.

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.

What does a float switch do and how does it benefit me?
A float switch ensures that your pump automatically turns on or off at a certain water level. This is very convenient if you wish to use the pump in rooms that are regularly submerged. After all, when using a float switch, you won't have to manually turn the pump on or off every time there is water in the room. Moreover, the pump is also equipped with a float switch, which means it can be set to both automatic and manual operation modes.

If I use the float switch, at what water level will the pump automatically turn on and off?
This submersible pump automatically powers on at a water level of 115 mm and turns off at a water level of 45 mm. In order to ensure that the room doesn't maintain a water level of 45 mm once the pump powers off, the pump is often placed in a small pit. This pit ensures that the pump is placed at a slightly deeper position in the room, ensuring continued pumping until a water level of 45 mm is reached in the pit. In this way, the rest of the room will be pumped dry and there will only be some remaining water in the pit

In what situations can I use this pump?
You can use the pump in the following situations:

  • The draining of your basement and/or crawl space
  • As a permanent setup to automatically drain your basement/crawl space once a specific water level is reached
  • The draining of your basin
  • The draining of your pool

What is the difference between the DAB Nova Up 180 MNA and the Tallas D-CWP 300?
When it comes to flat suction, the (DAB Nova Up 180 MNA) is the most effective submersible utility pump of the three. This submersible pump leaves behind a water level of 0-1 mm at most. Very easy for occasional use, in every place in the home. The Tallas D-CWP 300 is a submersible utility pump with float switch. This submersible pump can therefore also be automatically or manually turned on at a specific water level. Convenient for use in a basement/crawl space that is often submerged in water. This pump leaves behind a water level of 2-3 mm at most.

Can this pump be placed in small spaces?
This pump requires a space of at least a diameter of 23 centimetres. As a result, this submersible pump can be placed in almost any space.

Is the pump delivered ready for use?
Yes, this pump is supplied with all components required for direct use. The only thing you need to do is attach the drain hose to move the pumped water to a desired location. The drain hose in our assortment is suitable for this pump.
