Operates automatically when it detects water!
Automatic submersible pumps are extremely useful dirty water pumps. They are designed to be fully subermeged in water and they have a sensitive electrode that detects water and automatically switches the pump on to pump the water away from the area via a layflat delivery hose. The pump automatically shuts off when water is no longer detected. This means that these pumps can be used unattended to empty out water.
These 50mm submersible water pumps are industry standard pieces of equipment for pumping out dirty water from flooded areas on site. They are also perfect for emptying flooded basements, pools and tanks. These auto submersible pumps have an internal timer that stops the pump from starting and stopping too frequently - to prolong the life of the pump and prevent breakdowns.
You can book an automatic submersible pump hire online or over the phone. You can opt to collect the dirty water pump from your local depot at the start of the hire or we can deliver it to you.
Please note: Our 50mm auto submersible pumps are 110v pieces of equipment. A transformer, generator or 110V site supply will be required to use it. You will need a transformer and extension lead in order to power one of these water pumps using a domestic 240v mains power supply. You can add a transformer and extension lead to your order during checkout.
Please note: This product description and detail is based on the model we have the most stock of. Alternative brands of equivalent specification may be supplied based on location and availability.

Hot tub emptied in less an hour thanks to this.
I hired this to drain our hot tub in the garden, something that takes me hours if I just let it drain naturally or try using buckets or scoops (and gives me the worry of dumping 1500 litres of chlorinated water into the garden.) Setting up the pump took me five minutes, with an additional minute to fit a hose with a bulldog clip and run it to the drain, and I had the tub empty in under an hour. Can't praise this compact workhorse enough.
