Submersible Pumps: A Solution for Sludges and Deep Sumps

When faced with difficult pumping challenges such as high suction lifts exceeding 25′ or more, renting a hydraulic submersible pump is a great option.  This offers the contractor the ability to pump sludge and heavy solids effectively.  Hard to reach areas such as inside a building or cofferdams are no problem since the hydraulic pump can be located at the pumping source while the diesel engine power pack is located up to 150′-200′ away.
