Gas Water Pump Buyer's Guide

How to Pick the Perfect Gas Water Pump

Water Pump Product Expert

If you're reading this, you need, or will need to move some water.

Gas water pumps have the strength to move lots of water.

Selecting the right water pump for your needs comes down to the application for which you'll be using it.

We split our gas-powered water pumps into three categories:

Dewatering Pumps
Dewatering PumpsDewatering pumps are your standard gas-powered water pump. Their job is to remove water and displace it somewhere else.

Dewatering pumps are commonly used to empty hot tubs, drain ponds or move other types of clean water. With gas-powered engines, these pumps can move a lot of water in a hurry.

If you need to pump water with debris or solids in it, you'll need to look to a trash pump instead.

Trash Pumps
Trash PumpTrash pumps are built to move water containing debris and solids up to 2" in diameter. Our repertoire of trash pumps includes diaphragm and chemical pumps as well.

If you need to pump agricultural or industrial chemicals, you'll want to consider a chemical pump. For pumping water with stringy weeds or lots of leaves, get a suction hose with a strainer attachment.

If you need to operate the pump indoors, get an electric-powered water pump instead.

PTO Water Pumps
PTO Water PumpAlthough the actual PTO pump does not have a gas engine, it is powered by a tractor, which is powered by gasoline. Power is generated from the drive-shaft of a tractor, which in turn pumps water.

PTO pumps are popular with farmers and large landowners, as they require a tractor to operate. Harnessing the muscle of a tractor, PTO pumps are pretty much unrivaled in terms of power.

With no engine to maintain, the solid construction of the pumps allows for years of quality use.
