Water pumps are meant to pump water. When you introduce debris and other solids to the mix, things can get stopped up. This is where trash pumps come in. They’re capable of passing water containing these sorts of elements. The type of water you’ll be pumping will determine which type of trash pump you’ll need.
- Don’t throw a trash pump hose into a trash can and expect it to work. Rather, trash pumps are made to handle debris and solids such as leaves, pebbles and twigs.
- With larger impeller veins and pump housing, trash pumps can pass solids like those mentioned above. The pump does not grind these up as they enter the impeller, but leaves them intact and sends them on their way.
- You’ll want to use a hose with a strainer for trash pumps too. In the event the pump does get clogged though, there are easy clean outs, which you can open up by hand and remove any items too big.
