Question: What types of media can I pump with a submersible pump?


Pure, low-viscosity, non-explosive media without solid matter or long fibers.

If a liquid with a density differing from that of water is to be pumped, the motor power required due to the change in hydraulic power should be taken into account.

When pumping fluids more aggressive than drinking water, the special material construction pump versions such SP N, SP R and SPNE should be used.
