What Pump Do I Need?

what pump do i need?

Did you know that there are over 1,000 different pumps available on the market?

There are fuel pumps, sump pumps, marine pumps, caravan pumps and pressure pumps, to name a few! People often ask us, ‘What pump do I need?’

To take the stress out of finding the right pump we developed a tool on our website and called it ‘How to Select a Pump’. Using our pump chooser tool, you are searching within all our available pumps.

To begin, simply enter basic information to narrow down the type of pump that will work best for you (you won’t need to scroll through all the products!). The options include the following (you will need to select at least one option):

  • Voltage:  (Fuel, 12V, 18V, 24V, 240V, 415V, Fuel)
  • Pump Pressure:  (0 - 45 PSI, 46 - 79 PSI, 80 PSI +)
  • Liquid to be Pumped:  (Clean Water, Grey Water, Salt Water, Sewage, Corrosive chemicals, Waste Treatment, Fuels, Low Acid Chemicals)
  • Maximum Flow:  (0-23 L/pm, 24-129 L/pm, 130 L/pm- 499 L/pm, 500 L/pm+)
  • Horse Power:  (0 -1HP, 1.1 - 2HP, 2.1 - 3HP, 3.1HP+)
  • Maximum Head:  (1 - 5m, 6 - 10m, 11 - 20m, 21 - 40m, 41m +)

Can I search for a pump by the Application I want it for? 

Yes you can. Go to home, click on PUMP APPLICATIONS on the top toolbar. This will give you all the application categories to choose from. If you are looking for a pump for a caravan it will be under CARAVAN. Prressure pumps for your home will come under DOMESTIC and so on. 

Can I search for a pump by the type of pump it is?

Yes you can. Go to home, click on PUMPS. A drop down will appear. In each category under pumps if there is an arrow you can click on the arrow to show further sub-categories. For example: PUMPS - PRESSURE PUMPS - MULTI-STAGE PUMPS

Can I compare pump products on the site?

Once you have narrowed your search down, you can select the ‘compare’ button on the ones you wish to look at in more detail. This is helpful because you can then look at the results side by side.

Click on ‘Product Details’ under the photograph of each product to find out more about the product. Details will include the specifications such as size, weight, maximum flow, pressure, inlet/outlet size, voltage and amp draw, as well as, the features of the product, the possible applications, related products and reviews and comments.
