There’s nothing worse than your property being flooded, whether it’s from a natural event or an accidental overflow of water. The damage that occurs to household contents is sometimes irreparable but even worse is removing the water itself. It can be quite a simple process to remove floodwater with a Davey D15VA Submersible Sump Pump.
How does it work?
The Davey D15VA Submersible Sump Pump rests in the water. It’s encased in a waterproof housing, with the pump itself at the bottom and the outlet pipe near the top. A flat screen or grate covers the bottom of the pump to keep out debris. When the pump turns on, water is sucked up through the grate and routed into the pipes and out of your home.
This Davey D15VA pump is completely submersible up to 10 metres and should be placed on a solid flat surface (if not available, sit the pump on timber or house bricks) in the vertical position.
The pump should always be installed so that it will be clear of settled silt or debris. It is recommended to fit the biggest diameter hose possible, to obtain the best flow from the pump. To remove or lift the pump from deep wells or pits connect a rope to the handle during installation. Automatic versions should be placed in a sump which has adequate dimensions so as not to restrict the movement of the float switch.
Automatic controlled pump units have float switches factory set to provide the correct high (ON) and low (OFF) liquid levels.
With simple cleaning and regular examination this pump should give reliable service.
Applications for the Davey D15VA Submersible Sump Pump
In addition to using the Davey D15VA Submersible Sump Pump for pumping floodwater out of your property, it is useful for the following applications:
- Grey water pumping
- Sump emptying
- Septic effluent disposal
- Water transfer
- Pumping of light slurries and factory waste.
The Davey D15VA is a multi purpose vortex pump and has a single mechanical seals in oil bath for superior reliability and long life. It is corrosion resistant with a 304 stainless steel shaft, motor shell and fasteners. It handles solids with a vortex design to pump light slurries and water containing soft solids in suspension.
It is ideal for pumping grey water, fnal stage septic water and for larger models even raw sewage with soft solids up to 80% of
the pump discharge size. It is able to pump clean or ‘grey water’ of neutral pH containing up to 20% small soft solids or 1% fine solids. Some wear should be expected while pumping hard solids in suspension.
If your home or land is prone to heavy rain and flooding, a Davey D15VA Submersible Sump Pump is a must have piece of equipment to protect your property from water damage.
