Water pumps are machines used to move water from one place to another. There are several different types, including clean, dirty, submersible, and more, as well as powerful petrol and diesel engine pumps. Water pumps have a variety of purposes, from irrigating gardens and emptying ponds to pumping out flood water and draining building sites.
Clean water pump
Clean water pumps can help with irrigating gardens, draining cellars and basements and powering water features. These are often surface water pumps which remain above water rather than submersible pumps which can go underwater.
Dirty water pump
Dirty water pumps can empty water butts, septic tanks, pools, and wells, and remove liquid waste. Toolstation also stocks combined 2-in-1 clean & dirty water pumps, which can move both kinds of water.
Submersible water pump
These special airtight pumps can be fully submerged underwater (hence the name) and are actually more efficient because of this as pushing water requires less energy. They are often used to pump excess water from flooded spaces, and work with both clean and dirty water. Some models also come with a switch that lets you choose between continuous operation and a pre-selected on and off button for added convenience.
Toolstation stock a wide range of quality water pumps at everyday low prices from brands such as SIP, Einhell and Draper.
