How to Shop For a Portable Water Pump

A portable water pump is a great choice for a variety of applications and jobs including dewatering, agriculture, construction, oil and gas, mining, quarry and aggregates, waste management, and transportation industries. Whether you are looking for an electric or diesel portable water pump, Timberland Supply has what you need.

The best way to find the right portable pump for your needs is to choose a model that offers the flow rate, max head, and power source you need for your job. You should also consider the type of water you will be pumping and where you will be using the pump, as these factors may impact your decision.

When shopping for a portable water pump, look for an option with a compact size that is easy to transport. This will save you space in storage and make it easier to move the pump between projects or around the site. You should also look for a unit that can easily handle the amount of water you will be moving and that has a low power consumption.

Lastly, you will want to consider the amount of suction lift you will need for your application. This is the height that you will need to reach in order to remove water from a tank or other body of water. This will help you determine if a submersible or external portable water pump is the best option for your job. Submersible pumps are able to pump liquids under the surface of the water, while external models will be positioned outside the tank or body of water and will need to be connected via a suction hose.
