Dirty water pumps - selection guide

When choosing between dirty water pumps, there are a number of key points to consider to ensure you get the best performance and trouble-free usage.

 Let’s begin with the key questions you’ll need to answer when deciding between dirty water pumps: 

  • What are the required Head and Flow Rates?
  • How far do you want to pump the water?
  • What sort of dirty water are you actually pumping? Is it cloudy, or does it contain heavy solids?
  • Is the pump likely to run dry? (This will vary depending on your application) 

Additionally, is the application suitable for submersible slurry pumps, or would a self-priming pump be a better option?

 Once you have these questions, use the image below to choose between the different dirty water pumps available:
