Where the need for a pump is not necessarily permanent, a utility pump is often the best solution. A utility pump could be used instead of a specialist bathroom plumbing pump, or any other type of plumbing pump.
There are many uses for utility pumps. Many manufacturers, such as Little Giant and Liberty Pumps, offer a wide choice of pumps to tackle water and moisture problems.
Water removal - these pumps can be used to pump out blocked plumbing fittings, drain hot tubs or pools and effectively deal with flood water.
Remove condensation - excess condensation can be caused by heating or ventilation systems, a pump could be used to prevent this moisture gathering.
Boosting water pressure - when a power washer or hose pipe struggles to perform because of lack of pressure, a utility can be used to up the intensity of the water flow.
A few things to consider when deciding on the pump for your job:
Is there debris in the water? Some smaller pumps are likely to become clogged with too much debris.
Is the pump going to be left unattended? A pump with a sensor switch which automatically cuts in and when necessary could be left unattended.
Where will the water be pumped to? Choose a pump which either pumps water from the top or off to the side - some pumps offer the choice of doing either.
With the flexibility offered by a utility pump, it is a handy addition to your domestic and professional tool store, ready for those unexpected water problems.
