Background and Identification
Water utility pumps are used to pump water (or another liquid) out of an area. Water utility pumps are commonly used for dewatering of excavations, flooded basements, utility vaults, swimming pools, lakes, manholes, or wherever there is unwanted water. Water pumps make removing water much easier than trying to scoop it up with your hands or a bucket.
Water utility pumps are either submersible or non-submersible. If they are submersible, it means the pumps are used by immersing them in the liquid you are trying to remove. Non-submersible utility pumps, sometimes called transfer pumps, are designed to transport liquid from an exterior standpoint.
Portable water utility pumps are often electrically powered and designed for the average business or homeowner. The devices in this category refer to utility pumps used for water removal, which differ from water pumps that pump water out of the ground for human consumption.
Utility water pumps are generally designed to be both small and portable, allowing the user to easily transport them wherever they are needed. They commonly have an electrical cable, a base that houses the pump and tank itself, and a nozzle. Water pumps come in a variety of colors. They are made by numerous manufacturers, including Everbilt, Wayne, Ryobi, Milwaukee, etc.
