What to look out for when purchasing a house and garden pump
Still not sure which water pump is right for you? No wonder with the large selection! We will explain what to look out for with the different types of surface pumps and what points you should pay attention to in addition to a good price-performance ratio when deciding on a purchase.
What is the pump used for?
Of course, which water pump is best for you always depends on where you want to use it. First of all, you should always know how much water you want to pump. If you want to water a very large garden with the pump, you will need a lot of water, thus a higher flow rate. Depending on the model, our garden pumps can pump up to 5,000 litres per hour – this should also be sufficient for very large gardens. You should also pay attention to the conveying and suction height! All our surface pumps have a maximum suction height of 8 metres, so the reservoir you want to pump water from should not be deeper than this.
To keep track of your water pump at all times, some models are fitted with a status indicator. An LCD or LED display provides continuous information about the status of the pump and displays any error messages. Thanks to the dirt indicator, you can immediately detect dirt on the filter, while the suction indicator provides information about the current suction height, the suction pressure and any suction issues. Certain models have a flow sensor, which constantly monitors the water flow in the pump and protects against damage. A pre-filter with a non-return valve is also integrated in some pumps. The pre-filter protects against contamination and the valve prevents the water from flowing back into the original vessel when the pump is switched off.
Easy to use
Some features make it much easier for you to use the water pump. A water drain screw, for example, helps you to empty the water from the pump if you want to make it winter-proof and frost-proof. When the pump is started up, it must be filled with water – this is really simple thanks to a large filling opening. The water level indicator, a transparent sight glass on the pump head, shows the water level so you don't forget to fill the pump. A carrying handle is a practical addition if you want to easily transport the device for flexible use. Our petrol-powered water pumps are equipped with rubber feet to dampen vibrations. Other surface pumps have a base with a bore hole so that you can fix the pump firmly in place.
Important safety features
To ensure that you can enjoy your surface pump for as long as possible, you should pay attention to certain safety features that protect your device. Thermal overload protection, for example, prevents damage to the motor. The dry-run protection protects the pump from damage that may occur if the device can no longer suck in water and runs dry. In automatic house and garden pumps, domestic waterworks and garden pumps, scald protection prevents heating of the water that would remain in the pump body if the pressure side were blocked. For petrol-powered water pumps, a low-oil cut-out is beneficial because this ensures the automatic shutdown of the device if the oil level is too low. The motor could be damaged if it runs with too little oil.
