Expert Review
Submersible utility pumps have been around for a while. Every once in a while, a manufacturer surprises us with some new cool technology. This pump is the most technologically advanced of it's kind with it's iSwitch Water Sensing Technology. Most other pumps will just run continuous or run at time intervals causing unnecessary wear and tear on the pump. This pump will only turn on when it senses water that needs to be pumped out. This pump also features an oil-free design so if you need to empty out a little of koi pond after heavy rain, this one won't harm those precious fish. For all of the above reasons, this pump earns our recommendation.
