Water Transfer Pump
This self-propelled pump can be used for several applications on your property. With a maximum of 50 PSI pressure and 147 GPM, the pump is fully capable of handling lawn and garden watering, flood water removal, and pond/pool filling.
This centrifugal pump is manufactured by Pentair and features an aluminum casting with 2” inlet and outlets. The pump is “self-priming,” which utilizes air and water to reach a fully-primed pumping condition. Only the chamber needs to be filled with liquid prior to operation. The attachment includes 2’’ suction and discharge hoses, which are 25’ and 50’ long, respectively. Both hoses have aluminum camlock fittings, and one extra camlock fitting is included with the discharge hose. The pump is also fitted with a caster wheel for easy maneuverability.
A foot valve/strainer combo and steel strainer are also included with the Water Transfer Pump. The foot valve has a screen around the foot to keep out larger debris, and prevents drain back to maintain constant priming.
Using ponds, creeks, or wells as water sources, the Water Transfer Pump is a good fit for flood or sprinkler irrigation. For drip irrigation, a 120-micron filter, regulator, and pressure relief valve are recommended.
The Water Transfer Pump has a maximum “head” of 115 feet. This refers to the total height from the source of the water to the destination or discharge point. (Maximum 28 feet of vertical suction lift + 87 feet maximum vertical discharge height = 115 feet total head)
