  • trash pump recommendations

    a buddy of mine jumped the shark on that bad weather in the NE. he is looking for a 2 or 3 inch gas powered trash pump for the next time it rains like this.

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    i have both a 2'' and 3'' trash pump and a 3'' diaphram pump.

    these will pump tons of water and the diaphram pump can pump dry without damage.

    honda motors are a good call. also very important are the hoses. use pvc hoses that don't lay flat. you need a hose that can work on the suction side and a hose rated for pressure. i use the pvc hoses for both. they connect with cam and grove fittings. 2 snaps and you;re good to go.

    make sure to remove the gas when finished for the season and clean out the debris from the volute.

    my 3'' trash pump will do 21,000gph.

      A little hint about something to put into gasoline for small engines you don't use all year long. This stuff really does help. Be sure to measure carefully.
