The best surface pumps for watering your garden

Jilex Jumbo 70/50 P

Rating: 4.9

Jilex Jumbo 70/50 P

To some, this pump may seem expensive. Yes, they ask about 6-7 thousand rubles for it. But what you get is a durable device made from reliable materials. You can be sure that the pump will last for many years, no matter how often you use it.

This model has a suction depth of 9 m. As for the head, a maximum of a 50-meter hose can be connected to it. It seems that this will be enough for most gardeners. But don't forget to check your wiring! The fact is that the device consumes 1100 watts. Such a large figure is explained by the fact that the pump produces a good throughput – it reaches 4.2 cubic meters / h.

The device is capable of operating anywhere in Russia. This is evidenced by the permissible water temperature – it starts from 1 ° C. As for the maximum temperature, the water is allowed to warm up to 35 ° C. Of course, the water must be clean, all sorts of impurities can still damage the pump.

This model uses a centrifugal mechanism – the easiest to manufacture. There is also a built-in ejector, which is good news. The pump must only be used in a horizontal orientation. It connects to the outlet using a traditional cord. Its length is only 1.5 m. Perhaps this is the only serious drawback of the pump – I would like a longer cable. However, no one bothers you to buy an extension cord, which can be found in the nearest store that sells lighting lamps and other electrical goods. However, you can find fault with the case. It is made of plastic. If the pump is accidentally dropped onto a hard surface, chips may appear on the casing. This, of course, will not affect performance in any way.

What else can you tell about 'Jilex Jumbo 70/50 P'? Perhaps, about the smooth start of the engine. This is important because an instantaneous load could knock out the 'plugs'. The device also received overheating protection. It turns out that you can not be afraid to water the garden for a long time.

In a word, this is one of the best representatives of our rating. It perfectly copes with the task of lifting water from a well or shallow well. It is not for nothing that the owners of this pump write only positive reviews.

Advantages

  • Excellent suction depth;
  • The maximum head reaches 50 m;
  • Good throughput;
  • High reliability;
  • Work with water of any temperature is permissible;
  • There is an ejector;
  • Implemented smooth engine start;
  • There is overheating protection.

disadvantages

  • Plastic case;
  • Short power cord;
  • High noise level.

GARDENA 3000/4 ClassicPump Set

Rating: 4.8

GARDENA 3000/4 ClassicPump Set

Another pump for horizontal installation. This model is slightly easier to move – it has a comfortable and reliable handle. As for the cost, it is slightly higher – about 8 thousand rubles are asked for this pump. Therefore, you will spend a little more at a time. However, in the future, you will still be able to save money. The fact is that the device is capable of boasting a low power consumption – it does not exceed 600 watts.

Low energy consumption affected the pump's capabilities not in the best way. The suction depth here is only 7 m. However, this is enough for many owners of suburban areas. As well as the maximum head, reaching 36 m, it does not cause any complaints. The throughput of this device is 3.1 cubic meters / h.

As expected, this model should be used for pumping exclusively clean water. There is no filtration system here, so any impurities can easily damage the pump. The rest of the troubles he is not afraid of. There is even a protection against overheating, which will turn off the device in case of too long its operation.

The weight of this pump does not exceed 6.5 kg. This means that even an elderly person can transfer it from one place to another, albeit with some difficulty. It's nice that the product has a two-year warranty period – this is a good indication of how confident the manufacturer is in his product. There is no doubt that the pump will not fail even after many years. This is evidenced by numerous reviews, in which there is not a word about breakdowns. But on the other hand, they say that the device is not suitable for taking water from a well. When water rises from a depth of 7 meters, the process becomes extremely slow. In short, this model is intended mainly for those who will raise water from a much shallower depth – for example, from a well located next to the house.

Some accessories are supplied in the pump box. The garden hose takes up the most space – it is 20 m long and 13 mm (1/2 inch) in diameter. A water intake hose is also supplied with the device. Its length, of course, is much less – it is equal to 3.5 m. This hose has a simple filter and a check valve. The pump box also contains the connecting elements of the Original GARDENA Basic System.

Advantages

  • Rich equipment;
  • Long warranty period;
  • There is overheating protection;
  • Decent bandwidth;
  • There is a handle for more convenient carrying;
  • Low power consumption.

disadvantages

  • Decent noise level;
  • Short 1.5 meter power cord;
  • Poorly copes with water intake from great depths;
  • The cost may seem prohibitive.

Hammer NAC 1000A

Rating: 4.7

Hammer NAC 1000A

Another surface pump in our rating, sold for 7-8 thousand rubles. It weighs a little more – about 8 kg. This is due to the many metal components. And how beautiful the body shines here! If the pump is in the open air, it will reflect the sun's rays, causing only joyful feelings in you.

The Hammer NAC 1000A has received positive reviews not only for its looks. Many users have appreciated the pen here. It allows you to easily move the pump from storage to use. There are no special complaints about the characteristics of this model. The manufacturer claims an 8-meter suction depth. Users checked – these words are fully true. As for the maximum head, it is 45 m, which can also be considered an excellent result. The throughput capacity reaches 4.6 m3 / h. The disadvantage of such capacities is high power consumption – it is 1000 W. Therefore, regular use of the device will definitely affect the bills for electricity consumption. It is also necessary to clarify whether the wiring available in the country can withstand.

As you might have guessed, it uses a centrifugal pump mechanism. The installation of the device must be horizontal, otherwise malfunctions may occur. The water must be clean. However, the presence of stones will not affect the pump's performance in any way – the fact is that this model has a filter that cuts out particles with a diameter of 3 mm or more. If we continue talking about safety, then it should be noted the protection against overheating.

Demand for the Hammer NAC 1000A, as they say, exceeds supply. This is confirmed by reviews that regularly appear on price aggregators and in specialized online stores. Many reviews are five stars – people are most impressed with quiet operation. Indeed, models with a centrifugal pump are usually very noisy, while the Hammer NAC 1000A cannot be found fault with in this regard. Also, people note high-quality assembly and minimal heating.

Advantages

  • The device is quite quiet;
  • There is some filtering of particles;
  • There is overheating protection;
  • Good throughput;
  • Excellent maximum head;
  • Decent suction depth;
  • There is a carrying handle;
  • High reliability.

disadvantages

  • The price cannot be called low;
  • The package bundle is not at all rich;
  • Decent power consumption;
  • The power cord is only 1.2 m long.

Metabo P 2000 G

Rating: 4.6

Metabo P 2000 G

This pump is slightly smaller than the competitors discussed above. In this case, the weight of the device is 7.6 kg. Therefore, almost the entire device is made of metal components capable of boasting maximum reliability. There is also a plastic handle that helps in transporting the pump from the room to the street, and then back. It is a pity that it is made somehow unsightly – the handle definitely spoils the whole design. However, many people buy a garden pump not for the sake of decorating their site.

Typically, such devices are used to draw water from a well or well. The Metabo P 2000 G copes with this task without any major problems. Its capacity should be enough even to lift water from an 8-meter depth. The productivity of the device is 2000 l / h (about 33 l / min), which should definitely be enough for watering even a very large vegetable garden or garden. However, it is not recommended to connect a very long hose to such a pump. The fact is that the maximum possible head attainable when using this device is only 30 m. Not everyone will be satisfied with such parameters. But on the other hand, a motor is installed inside the pump, which does not affect too much electricity bills. More specifically, the engine power is 450 watts.

What else can this surface pump boast about? For example, rubberized feet. They make the device as stable as possible on any surface. Also, the product can withstand water at almost any temperature. And this is not surprising, because the water in the well can be extremely cold. The maximum permissible temperature is + 35 ° C. It seems that you are unlikely to find warmer water in the country. You will not connect the pump to a water heater!

This model belongs to the IPX4 protection class. This means that it is unlikely that something will happen to her if it rains a little. And this is not surprising, because the body of the product was created from cast iron!

What can you complain about? Perhaps the pump does not have serious drawbacks, it copes with the stated tasks without much difficulty. Not everyone will be satisfied with only the equipment. Alas, you will not find any hoses in the pump box. And the hose for the water intake is not needed simple, but equipped with a check valve. Another disadvantage is the idle speed protection. But this is a disaster for all garden watering pumps that have a similar or lower price tag. As for the protection against heat, the manufacturer does not specify if it is here. However, even with constant operation, the pump does not heat up, so we do not recommend bothering yourself with this question. This model may require replacement for another reason. After a year of regular use, the bearings begin to make noise. There is no doubt that after some more time they will fail. Also, the end may come to the gland or winding. However, this is a pump for irrigation, and not for continuous delivery of drinking water to the house.

Advantages

  • Relatively small size;
  • Made from cast iron and other reliable materials;
  • It sucks up water well from great depths;
  • Decent performance
  • Low power consumption.

disadvantages

  • High noise level;
  • Bearings may need to be replaced after three years;
  • Poor equipment;
  • Short power cord (1.5 m).

KARCHER BP 2 Garden

Rating: 4.5

KARCHER BP 2 Garden

A huge number of garden equipment is produced under the KARCHER brand. There are also pumps for watering the garden in the assortment of this company. We will definitely tell you about the model called BP 2 Garden in our rating, as it is beautiful both externally and in terms of cost. On the official website of the manufacturer, this pump is sold for 7 thousand rubles, but in some other stores it can be purchased much cheaper, especially during sales.

Appliances under the KARCHER brand usually have a yellow body. This pump is no exception to the rule. All metal parts are packed in a round plastic case. The handle available here is also plastic, so carry the device carefully – it is possible that if used carelessly, 8.1 kg of weight will make themselves felt.

This pump is superficial. Its suction power is very solid. It is quite enough to lift water from an 8-meter depth. As for the pressure, it can reach a maximum of 35 m. The throughput capacity is 3 cubic meters / h. In a word, in terms of characteristics, the device cannot but rejoice. It also consumes a relatively small amount of electricity! 700W is comparable to the power of a standard microwave.

A 1-inch inlet can be found on the pump housing. Installation of the device – only horizontal. However, you will not be able to mix it up, the design does not allow to put it differently. It should also be noted that the pump is capable of pumping any water – the maximum supported temperature is 35 ° C. If only this water is clean, all kinds of impurities will quickly disable the device.

It remains to add that the product is completed with the usual network cable, the length of which is 1.5 m. Unfortunately, a rare manufacturer agrees to be generous with a longer cord.

It is not for nothing that this pump practically closes the rating of surface models. The point is that it is the least reliable one. On the network, you can easily find reviews that describe the failure of the device. And the need to buy branded adapters also pleases not everyone.

Advantages

  • Nice appearance;
  • Large suction depth;
  • Decent maximum head;
  • Decent performance
  • Low power consumption;
  • Easy transportation.

disadvantages

  • Low reliability;
  • The pump is quite noisy;
  • We need branded adapters;
  • Power cord not very long.

VORTEX PN-370

Rating: 4.4

VORTEX PN-370

One of the most popular surface pumps. Many summer residents make their choice in his favor. The secret of success lies in the very low cost. This is a rare representative of our rating, selling for only 2 thousand rubles. At the same time, in terms of its characteristics, the device is no worse than the analogs discussed above, and in some ways even better. For example, the manufacturer claims a suction depth of 9 m. Is this true? Yes, positive reviews confirm that water can indeed be lifted from such a depth. As for the pressure, the maximum it is 30 m. All this allows you to take water from a very deep well.

This model has a capacity of 2.76 cubic meters / h. This is definitely enough even for very intensive watering of the garden. It's nice that the pump is light enough. Agree, 5.4 kg is an acceptable weight that allows you to regularly carry the device from place to place. At the same time, a high-quality cast-iron case is used here, which will not allow the insides to be damaged either in a year, or in two, or in more years. However, there is still one serious drawback associated with the case. It is covered in bad paint. And the point is not even that after a certain amount of time it may peel off slightly. The paint will cause problems on first run. But when it is done, you don't have to worry anymore – in the future, the device will start from half a kick.

Such a small pump could not accommodate a particularly powerful electric motor. Indeed, this model has a power consumption of 370 W. Therefore, this is one of the most energy efficient models in our selection. Here is another explanation of why the VORTEX PN-370 is in demand among many summer residents. Old wooden houses have the simplest aluminum wiring, and they might not be able to withstand a lot of stress. VORTEX PN-370 in terms of power consumption can be compared to a computer or a large modern TV. In a word, such a pump will withstand any electrical network.

This model is traditionally sharpened for pumping clean water. It must be so if you do not want to face a breakdown of the device. As for its temperature, the maximum is maintained at 35 ° C. There are no restrictions on the minimum temperature, of course, it is not without reason that the device received a cast-iron case and many metal components.

It remains to be noted that this is a rare case when a manufacturer claims a vertical pump installation. And also there is no handle, which can make someone a little sad. However, water intake from a well or well implies that the pump is in one place, so many people still will not notice this drawback.

Advantages

  • Small size and weight;
  • Decent bandwidth;
  • Good maximum head;
  • Very large suction depth;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Very low cost;
  • Overheating protection implemented.

disadvantages

  • Poor quality paint;
  • Decent noise level;
  • The handle is missing.

The best barrel pumps for watering your garden

Karcher BP 1 Barrel 1.645-460

Rating: 4.9

Karcher BP 1 Barrel 1.645-460

Another pump, the body of which is plastic and painted yellow. However, this is already a barrel model, in connection with which it has a number of features. In Russian stores, they sell it for 5-6 thousand rubles, which seems to be a quite adequate price tag. For this money, you will receive a pump capable of taking water from a 7-meter depth. He does it as efficiently as possible – the power consumption is only 400 watts. It is not for nothing that this model is regularly bought by people with old country houses, which use the simplest wiring that is not able to withstand any serious load.

Continuing the conversation about the characteristics of the pump, one cannot fail to note its performance. It can reach 3800 l / h (3.8 cubic meters / h). This means that you can easily use the product for watering a garden, no matter how large it is. The problem is the pressure. The maximum pump is designed to pump 11 m of water (we are talking about its vertical rise). This means that a deep hole will require the purchase of some other model. Well, Karcher BP 1 Barrel 1.645-460 is mainly intended for use in a well, the depth of which does not reach 11 m. And do not forget to make sure that the water in your well is frequent! Otherwise, do not be surprised that the device will fail soon after the end of the warranty period. Of course there is a filter here. However, it cannot cope with particles smaller than 1 mm in diameter.

As you already understood, this model assumes vertical installation. It is not difficult to bring it to the dacha, because the weight of the pump barely reaches 3 kg. It's nice that the manufacturer has implemented at least float control over the water level – many of the pumps considered in this rating do not have this either. Also, the device received protection against dry running, which is also quite unexpected. If only he could boast of a long warranty period … But no, you will have the traditional one year.

Should you buy this model? Perhaps yes. As we said, it can be used in a well. However, the manufacturer himself hints that this is a barrel pump. Therefore, it is better to take water for them from the barrel, the maximum volume of which can be 227 liters. It's nice that the product has received a long power cord – this can be considered a kind of bonus. Well, as for the plastic, from which the case is made … It is quite reliable, it is unlikely that something will happen to it after several years of operation.

Do not assume that this product has no flaws at all. Buyers in their reviews note the flimsy fastening of the lower filter – if the pump is carelessly installed on a hard surface, it can crack or even break. Well, after prolonged use, the shut-off valve at the outlet may fall off – this is being repaired, but at the expense of the appearance of the entire structure. And do not forget to tilt the casing when submerging – this will release an air lock from the pump, which would lead to a decrease in performance!

Advantages

  • Comes with a 10 m network cable;
  • Small size and weight;
  • Low noise level;
  • Good immersion depth;
  • Decent performance
  • Very low power consumption;
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is a control over the water level.

disadvantages

  • The maximum head is only 11 m;
  • The plastic case will not suit everyone.

Quattro Elementi Drenaggio 400 Fles

Rating: 4.8

Quattro Elementi Drenaggio 400 Fles

Another pump for pumping clean water in our rating. It also belongs to the barrel type. However, somewhere it belongs to the drainage type of pumps. Be that as it may, but the most impressive is the price of the device. In Russian online stores, they ask about 3 thousand rubles for it. Let's find out what the manufacturer saved on.

Immediately, we note that it will not work to submerge the pump to a great depth. The manufacturer claims a maximum depth of two meters. Therefore, this specimen is definitely not suitable for use in a well. As for the maximum head, it can reach 12 m. This is quite a good value, although surface pumps are still capable of more. The productivity is 2.4 cubic meters / h. It is clear that achieving such parameters does not require any high power consumption. Indeed, the power consumption of this pump is only 370 W. A good choice for home owners in which the wiring has not changed since the middle of the last century.

This product filters particles with a diameter of at least 3 mm. There are also some restrictions on water temperature. It should be at least 5 ° C and not more than 30 ° C. However, this is typical for drum pumps, especially for such inexpensive ones. Note that the restriction applies specifically to water. The ambient temperature can vary from 1 ° C to 40 ° C.

As expected, the product is intended for vertical installation. The pump weighs 4.7 kg. This cannot be called the minimum parameter, but there are specimens that are heavier.

Despite the low cost, this device received a float control over the water level. However, it would be strange to see a barrel pump without any automatic control. There are also several remedies here. One of them saves from overheating, the other from dry running.

Judging by the reviews, Quattro Elementi Drenaggio 400 Fles is ideal for watering from a tank. A hose lying in a horizontal position pumps the product without any problems, even if it is 25 meters long. Also, buyers are pleased with the easy use – even an elderly person can deal with such a pump. Among the shortcomings, it can be noted that the device is not designed for the popular 220-liter plastic barrels – the pump simply does not reach the bottom. However, no one bothers to drown it in such a tank along with the pipe. Otherwise, this model has no special drawbacks. At least all the other shortcomings are so insignificant that they should not even be remembered.

Advantages

  • Decent performance
  • Very low power consumption;
  • Minimum dimensions and weight;
  • There is overheating protection;
  • Protection against dry running is implemented;
  • There is an automatic control over the water level;
  • Very low cost.

disadvantages

  • Shallow immersion depth;
  • Doesn't reach the bottom of a 210-liter barrel.

The best submersible pumps for watering the garden

Pedrollo TOP 2

Rating: 4.9

Pedrollo TOP 2

The simplest submersible pump with a plastic housing and extremely lightweight control. The weight of this device does not exceed 5 kg. Sellers ask about 7 thousand rubles for the pump. A lot of money. What is the reason for the decent cost?

First of all, attention is drawn to the unusually high performance. The manufacturer declared 13.2 cubic meters per hour. If the previous options considered are mainly used only for irrigation, then here the power is quite enough even to use the unit in a sewer station! Although the manufacturer, of course, notes that his product is still designed to work only with clean water. Here, even the simplest filter is used, it does not let through only 10 mm and larger particles. As for the temperature of the liquid, it should not exceed 40 ° C. However, you can also pump water for a short time, the temperature of which reaches 90 ° C. But such an impact on the device should last no more than three minutes, otherwise it may fail!

This model is allowed to be submerged to a depth of no more than 5 m. As for the pressure, the maximum pump is capable of raising water to a height of 9 meters. The power consumption of the device is 370 W. It's nice, the pump can even be plugged into an outlet with relatively simple wiring.

The product uses a centrifugal pump. A 1 1/4 '' threaded outlet can be found on the housing. Installation of the device is exclusively vertical. Its dimensions are 15.2×25.7 cm. This means that the pump will fit anywhere, there will definitely not be any problems with its transportation.

I am glad that the product has received automatic control over the water level, implemented using the simplest float system. There is also a smooth start of the engine. Of course, with such a low power it is not so important, but still … Protection against dry running is also implemented here. And from overheating, of course, where is it without such protection …

The easiest way to describe this pump is the word 'beast'. This is what one of the buyers called him in his review. This is one of the most efficient pumps in our ranking. At least among those models that are intended for the average consumer. One can find fault here only with reliability. More precisely, to the assembly of some instances. The fact is that for some people the pump has been working for many years, while for others after a couple of years it still fails (we are talking about intensive use).

Advantages

  • Very high performance;
  • Not a bad diving depth;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Able to withstand even very high temperatures;
  • Even sludge will not damage the pump;
  • Small size and weight;
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is a control over the water level;
  • Implemented a smooth start of the engine.

disadvantages

  • Some examples are relatively short-lived;
  • The pressure is not ideal.

ZUBR NPG-M1-400

Rating: 4.8

ZUBR NPG-M1-400

Another submersible drainage pump in our ranking. It already has a lower capacity – the manufacturer claims 7.5 cubic meters per hour. But this copy is also much cheaper – in Russian online stores they ask for no more than 2 thousand rubles.

As you can see, this unit received a simple plastic handle. However, it is unlikely that it will ever break down, because the pump weighs only 3 kg. It also has a relatively small size, which makes it even easier to carry and transport.

The power consumption of this device is only 400 watts. This allows you to connect the device to an outlet from which very old aluminum wiring leads. The pump can be submerged to a maximum depth of 7 meters. As you know, drainage models usually have a small head. ZUBR NPG-M1-400 is no exception to the rule, here this parameter is only 5 m. Therefore, this unit cannot be used in any very deep well, where water must be raised to a decent height.

This product differs from other models in that it is sharpened for pumping absolutely any water – even clean, even dirty. The built-in filter does not let through only those particles that are at least 35 mm in diameter. And this, one might say, is a decent-sized pebble. We can safely say that such a pump is an excellent choice for pumping wastewater, sludge and other things.

There is an outlet on the body of this device. As you might have guessed, its diameter is 1 1/4 inches. The pump dimensions are 19x29x16 cm. The connection to the mains is made using a 7-meter cord. Such concern of the manufacturer is good news. It's possible that you don't even need an extension cord!

Submersible pumps usually have automatic water level control. Here it is also available, it is implemented using a float system – simply and reliably. Well, one cannot fail to note the protection against dry running, which perfectly copes with its duty.

Perhaps this is the best deal for the money! Buyers describe extremely positive experiences in their reviews. It so happened that such an inexpensive pump simply has no noticeable disadvantages. It doesn't even make noise, unlike surface models!

Advantages

  • Low noise level;
  • Complete with a long cord;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Possibility of pumping dirty water;
  • Small size and weight;
  • Very low cost;
  • Decent performance
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is control over the water level.

disadvantages

  • The pressure cannot be called particularly great.

The best drainage pumps for watering your garden

Gileks Drainer 550/14 5151

Rating: 4.9

Gileks Drainer 550/14 5151

A very expensive pump. Russian sellers ask about 13 thousand rubles for this product. This allows us to understand that the device was not created for ordinary summer residents. Perhaps this pump is for people who grow fruits and vegetables for sale. In this case, the use of such pumps will definitely pay off.

A large garden needs watering with large amounts of water. This copy is ready to provide them. Its throughput is as much as 33 cubic meters per hour. At the same time, the pump provides a head at a level of 14 m. As for the immersion depth, it can reach 8 m, which in most cases is quite enough.

Basically, the device is designed to work with clean water. However, small stones will not interfere with it – the manufacturer claims to filter particles with a diameter of 40 mm or more. Also, the pump is not picky about the water temperature – both cold and warm water are suitable for it. The buyer should also be pleased with the length of the power cord, which is 10 m.

The device is protected against dry running. He also received automatic control over the water level, implemented by a float system. Whether there is overheating protection here – the manufacturer is not specified. But the reviews do not say that the device has any problems of this kind.

It is clear that such a high performance cannot be achieved without high energy consumption. The buyer needs to be prepared for the pump to consume up to 2000 watts. However, when growing vegetables and fruits for sale, the cost of electricity cannot be particularly low.

Advantages

  • Huge bandwidth;
  • Decent pressure;
  • Good immersion depth;
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is an automatic control over the water level;
  • Long power cord;
  • Doesn't make noise.

disadvantages

  • High power consumption;
  • The cost is not low;
  • There is no chopping mechanism;
  • Some instances fail quickly.

PATRIOT F 900

Rating: 4.8

PATRIOT F 900

This submersible drainage pump is sold for only 3 thousand rubles. Not bad for a product from an American manufacturer! But even more pleased with its performance. The throughput of this pump can reach an impressive 13.98 m3 / h. Therefore, do not be surprised that the power consumption of the device is 900 W. It is impossible to pump such volumes of water without significant energy consumption.

Such pumps are usually submerged in wells and boreholes. In this regard, the product must have a good immersion depth. Here this parameter is quite decent 7 m. It is also impossible not to note the possibility of water rise to a 10-meter height. Perhaps, it is impossible to find fault with all these characteristics.

Some customers use this model to pump sump water. The pump copes with this task without any problems. Therefore, the quality of water for him is absolutely not important. The manufacturer himself specifies that only those particles with a diameter of at least 35 mm are filtered by his creation.

Such pumps require automatic water level control. Here it is present, but it is implemented using a float system. Dry-running protection is also introduced here. As for the protection against overheating, the manufacturer does not specify its presence.

This pump assumes vertical installation. The weight of the device is 6 kg, which makes it not particularly difficult to carry. The convenient handle, which is on the plastic case, also helps in this. The dimensions of the device are 16x36x22 cm. In a word, the American company has obtained a compact, relatively lightweight and inexpensive device that will be useful in many country houses.

Advantages

  • Able to work with dirty water;
  • Good immersion depth;
  • Excellent throughput;
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is an automatic control over the water level;
  • Low cost.

disadvantages

  • Extremely high power consumption;
  • The pressure cannot be called very high;
  • Low reliability;
  • Plastic case.

Whirlwind DN-900

Rating: 4.7

Whirlwind DN-900

If you think about it, Russian-made drainage pumps are in no way inferior to their foreign counterparts. For example, the 'Vortex DN-900' sold for 3 thousand rubles offers decent performance, good immersion depth and automatic water level control. The latter is traditionally made according to the float system.

The device has a pair of protective equipment. The first will turn off the device in the absence of water, and the second monitors the heating of the pump. Place this device in water in an upright position. As for the quality of water, first of all, this product was created for pumping silt and all kinds of dirt. The diameter of the filtered particles, which starts here from 35 mm, also speaks of this purpose.

The manufacturer claims that his creation is capable of raising water to an 8-meter height. This is true, but with such a task it copes with noticeable difficulty. Therefore, it is recommended to buy the 'Whirlwind DN-900' to still raise the water to a lower height. But there are no complaints about the bandwidth. It reaches an impressive 15.5 cubic meters per hour. This is enough to provide a huge flow of water. It should also help in quickly emptying a pit or ditch. It is clear that some energy consumption is required to ensure such a flow. In this case, the power consumption is 900 W, which is quite acceptable.

Dirty water pumps are not always as reliable as possible. Especially their budget variations. Alas, 'Vortex DN-900' also has a number of complaints. Some copies have a capacity less than the declared one – there is a defect. Others break down after only a few months, their owners have to remember the warranty period. Also, problems can arise with the above float system. In short, although the pump got into our rating, it is by no means perfect. However, we do not intend to frighten you. Approximately 75% of Vortex DN-900 buyers do not face any of the above problems in the future.

Advantages

  • Quite good pressure;
  • Good performance;
  • Work with dirty water is possible;
  • There is protection against dry running;
  • There is overheating protection;
  • There is a control over the water level;
  • Low cost;
  • Low noise level;
  • An anti-kink cord is used.

disadvantages

  • Some instances fail quickly.

The best borehole pumps for watering the garden

Dzhileks Vodomet PROF 55/75

Rating: 4.9

Dzhileks Vodomet PROF 55/75

One of the most compact pumps among all the representatives of our rating. At the same time, a very powerful motor is located inside this device. Its power consumption reaches an impressive 900 watts. This parameter makes it possible to understand that the pump will provide either an excellent head or high throughput. In this case, the manufacturer chose the first option. And this is correct, because the water from the well needs to be raised to a very great height.

More specifically, the manufacturer stated a 30-meter immersion depth. This makes it possible to think about buying a pump even for a small enterprise that bottled clean water from a large well. As already mentioned above, it will not face problems when the water rises. The maximum head provided by this pump is 75 m. A record if we talk about all the pumps included in this collection! Well, the throughput of this device is low, at 3.3 cubic meters / h. However, even this figure should suit most buyers. This is not a dirty water pump, which would be designed to pump out the entire reservoir to dryness as quickly as possible.

This model is intended solely for immersion in clean water. There is a traditional filter that does not allow particles that are equal to or greater than 1.5 mm in size to enter the pump. As for the water temperature, the maximum is maintained at 35 ° C. You can guess the minimum value yourself. This, of course, is 1 ° C – this is how cold water happens at a great depth of the well.

This model requires vertical installation. However, the design will not allow you to place the pump in any other way, especially if you really lower it into a well or well. By the way, no extension cord is needed for this. The point is that the pump has a 30 m mains cable. That is, it will definitely be enough for the most accessible immersion!

The high reliability can please even more. The manufacturer claims that his creation has at least a 10-year lifespan. That is why about 10 thousand rubles are asked for 'Jileks Vodomet PROF 55/75'. As for the warranty bag, it is 3 years, which is also an impressive figure.

Advantages

  • Huge immersion depth;
  • There is a very long power cord;
  • The maximum head reaches 75 m;
  • Decent bandwidth;
  • Energy consumption is not prohibitive;
  • Good filter;
  • Long service life.

disadvantages

  • High price;
  • Some copies still have defects.

Vortex SN-90V

Rating: 4.8

Vortex SN-90V

In recent years, “Whirlwind” has become a household name in our country. When you talk about an inexpensive irrigation pump, you usually mean products under the Whirlwind brand. Therefore, one should not be surprised that our rating is completed by a model called 'Vortex CH-90V'. It is a downhole pump with an oblong shape and a metal casing. The price tag hints at the fact that this model is not universal. If the specimen considered above can be used in each well, then this cannot be said about the Vortex. The fact is that it is difficult to submerge this device to great depths. Yes, the manufacturer claims 35 m. But the length of the network cable is only 17 m! Do I need to say that for underwater use you will need a special extension cord, the purchase of which will definitely affect the budget?

As you already understood, this product was created for use in clean water. The maximum head provided by the device is 90 m. Allegedly. In fact, it is better to use it to raise water to half the height, otherwise the pump will experience serious problems. However, even at lower altitudes, you won't get any decent performance. Alas, the pump provides a throughput of only 1.5 m3 / h. This will definitely not be enough for some enterprise, its leader needs to look towards a more expensive model. Whether this parameter is suitable for the owner of the dacha is another question.

The main advantage of this pump is its low energy consumption. The motor installed here is only 550 watts. Therefore, you can not be afraid to connect the 'Vortex CH-90V' to the socket, under which the old aluminum wiring is hidden. By the way, the diameter of the pump installed here is 100 mm, but the dimensions of the entire device as a whole are 10×57 cm.The weight of the device does not exceed 8.7 kg. Quite acceptable for a unit that you will submerge to a decent depth. And this is still not a lot for the network cable to break, not withstanding the load.

This model assumes vertical installation. Slightly disappointing is the lack of a pump-to-rod adapter. However, what model does it come with?

Advantages

  • Good immersion depth;
  • The maximum head is impressive;
  • Low power consumption;
  • The cost is not very high.

disadvantages

  • Low bandwidth;
  • I would like to get a longer power cord;
  • Fasteners are not corrosion resistant;
  • Afraid of sand and silt;
  • Sensitive to mains voltage;
  • Short service life.
