Prime Assisted De-watering Pumps
De-watering pumps are very robust pumps & commonly found on construction sites. The hire pump industry also prefer these units as a heavy duty asset that will generally stand up to untrained operators & misuse.
They are normally combined with a separate priming pump to ensure all gases are removed from the suction leg & can tolerate running dry for short periods if required.
