This pump was specifically designed for tanks and bottom suction applications. It includes a built in check valve. It also has a suction port several inches lower than a submersible deep well pump utilizing more available water. It also has a cooling sleeve built in for proper cooling of the motor not found on submersible deep well pumps. It has a 10' submersible cord included so no under water splice is necessary. The 1/2HP pump available is the +1 model at 20GPM but provides excellent water pressure at lower volumes. It is also commonly used for gray water (up to .080 solids) effluent applications.
