A highly efficient pump that is easy to use, can be used for a myriad of purposes and doesn’t require a power connection to run? It sounds too good to be true, but the V-Pump by Pool Poppits ticks all these boxes and more.

This compact sized piece of equipment pumps up to 4500 litres per hour (the average output being between 3,025 and vpump13,400 litres of water per hour!), which is the same rate as an expensive electrical industrial pump. The main draw card of the brand new V-Pump is the cheap running costs; since it requires no power to operate, so no matter how often or how long you run your pump for, there will be no crazy power bills.

Another major plus of the V-Pump is its design, as it has no moving parts, and therefore requires minimal maintenance and carries a low risk of damage. A totally submersible pump and suitable for many purposes, it is very easy to use; simply hook the pump up to a garden hose and turn it on.

The vacuum created by the water moving through the pump removes any extra water, mud, sand and other debris. Suitable for industrial and domestic use, the V-Pump can be used with multiple kinds of liquids.

The V-Pump was even used by New York residents in April after they experienced major storms and flooding.
