Product description

The Tallas D-ESUB 1200 is an underwater booster pump made of synthetic and stainless steel materials, suitable for irrigating gardens and supplying domestic water. This pump is fitted with a built-in pressure switch, so that it switches on and off automatically depending on water requirement. It is ideal if you have a water source in which this pump can be set up for supplying your home and garden automatically with water. This borehole pump operates quietly and is also equipped with built-in dry-running protection. This means that the pump automatically switches off if it is no longer able to process the water: for example, if the water source has run dry. This feature protects your pump against damage due to running dry.

  • Dimensions: 15.5 x 15 x 52.6 cm
  • Provides sufficient pressure and capacity for about five sprinklers
  • Delivery connection: 1"
  • Supplied with a 15m connection cable

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.

Dry-running protection

The name says it all: this pump is protected from running dry. Most pumps cannot, if at all, operate dry for long, which usually ends in the pump immediately burning out and/or seizing. For example, this could happen if the source has run dry and the pump can no longer draw water from it. Garden and booster pumps are particularly sensitive to running dry. Some borehole pumps and somewhat more advanced garden pumps are already equipped with built-in dry-running protection. Others can be easily fitted with a dry-running protection system: for example, with a separate one or with the DAB Control-D. This definitely guarantees that the garden or booster pump will not run dry.

Automatic activation / deactivation

This pump switches on or off automatically if you open or close a water point that is connected to the pump. In many cases, this feature is a considerable advantage: for example, when irrigating a garden with a hand-held sprayer, or supplying a toilet or washing machine with rainwater. It is also useful if you want to increase the water pressure in your home. Unlike standard garden water pumps, water pressure pumps - because of the difference in pressure - 'notice' when one or more water points are opened or closed. This is how the pump knows that it needs to start or stop. Standard water pressure pumps (which are mounted to a tank) are equipped with a mechanical switch, and the more advanced ones have electronic switches. Both systems have advantages and disadvantages. The mechanical switch is reliable but can either not be set or it is difficult to do so, while the electronic version can be set but is dependent on electricity.

Frequently asked questions

What kind of water can I pump with this model?
The Tallas D-ESUB 1200 is only suitable to pump clean water; i.e. water that is free from very large solid particles. However, ensure that the water is free from sand, gravel, or street dirt, and that the water temperature is not lower than 0°C and not higher than 35°C.

Why a borehole pump and not a submersible pump, garden pump or booster pump?
Submersible pumps have an average delivery head of 7 metres, while garden and booster pumps can only draw in water from a maximum depth of 9 metres.
Borehole pumps exceed the limits of the other pumps, and are usually able to lift water to a height of 50 metres.
Ideal for garden irrigation or for supplying water in domestic situations.

In what situations can I use this pump?
This pump is suitable for the following applications:

  • Draining a space
  • Draining a well or borehole
  • Watering, spraying, and irrigating a garden or lawn
  • Hosing down a terrace, decking or garden furniture
  • Supplying water/rainwater for your washing machine, toilet, sink, or shower in a separate circuit

How do I install a borehole pump?
First, the borehole pump needs to be immersed in the water. It is important that the pump is situated at least 50 cm from the bottom so that it does not draw in any sand, gravel, or other dirt. Furthermore, a borehole pump may be submerged to a maximum depth of 20 metres.

Can I convert this model into an automatic pump?
This borehole pump is fitted with a built-in pressure switch, which ensures that the pump operates fully automatically.
This means that the pump switches on automatically if water supply is needed (e.g. opening a tap) and off when it is no longer needed.

I could not find the pump model that I had in mind, what should I do?
If you are looking for and cannot find a pump that meets your requirements, you are advised to contact us by email or telephone. We usually have a suitable recommendation for any situation.

Is the pump supplied ready to use?
Yes, this pump is supplied with every component needed for immediate use.
However, this pump is not supplied with a discharge hose, although one can easily be added to your order.
The discharge hoses can be connected to each other if a length of 10 metres is not sufficient.
