Submersible Pumps

If you haven’t really considered the water pump to get for your tank, then you are probably researching about pumps. Since you are reading this article you are probably also wondering what a submersible pump is? This article will clearly explain what a submersible pump is and when it is used enabling you to decide whether they are for you.

Submersible pumps as the name suggests are made to be fully submerged in water. It is a centrifugal water pump, meaning it has a motor that powers an impeller designed to rotate and push water outwards. The motor is located within a waterproof seal and closely coupled to the body of the pump which it powers.

Pumps that are designed to be submersible are placed within the reservoir of water that needs pumping out. As such, they are often used for drainage in floods, sewerage pumping, emptying ponds or even as pond filters. Filtration pumps found inside fish tanks are a type of submersible pump. In the case of a water tank, submersible pumps are placed inside the actual tank to pump the water out to where it is needed.
