Electric water pumps are extremely versatile.
Whether you're drying-out a flooded basement, watering your lawn with sprinklers, or filling a pool, electric water pumps can get the job done.
The task at hand will determine which of the 3 types of electric water pumps you'll need.
Submersible Water Pumps
Submersible pumps are meant to be submerged in the water you need to move. These are built with homeowners in mind, and if you don't have a traditional discharge hose, attach an adapter and use a garden hose. Submersible pumps are used to remove standing water, empty clogged sinks or drain window wells and other problem areas.
These come in two types - utility and trash pumps. If you're just moving water, go with a utility pump. However, if the water contains debris, sand or solids, go with a trash pump instead. If you need to move a lot of water quickly, a gas-powered model might be a better bet.
