Electric Water Pump Idea Needed


Billfo

Recommended Posts

Neighbor had a small electric pump hanging off the dock in the water for the fish cleaning station. Corp said no no.. So we are looking for a small electric pump to mount ON the dock with the inlet hose IN the water & the outlet hose on the fish cleaning station. Does anyone have an idea what we could use ? There must be a cheap alternative..

Thanks for your ideas..Bill

I would look at sump pumps. Finding one that will lift the intake far enough might be a problem though. Check plumbing supply's, Granger, and Johnstone.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Went through the same exercise last year. The same pump we had ( on our boat-dock @ our fish cleaning station for our guests to use ) for the previous 8 years & had no problems with & no accidents ( someone getting shocked ) with was deemed unacceptable by your friendly USACOE. So because some " MORON " had to swim under a boat-dock ( I think I remember the news report saying it was in the Kimberling City area ) & reach out & touch a submerged 120 volt pump & get shocked ( which means either the pump was defective, or not installed properly / not grounded ) now all of us get to suffer. I removed the old pump, went to LOWE'S & purchased a 120 volt self-priming utility pump ( $89.00 seems to stick in my head ) 3/4 inch PVC pipe fittings & pipe & 2 hours later the USACOE was again " HAPPY & LIKED ME " !!!!!!!

I drilled a hole in the boat-dock deck ( directly under the pump ) connected the PVC pipe to the inlet/suction side of the pump & ran it straight down into the lake. Connected a 3/4 inch garden hose to the outlet/pressure side of the pump & ran it up to the sink. Covered the pump with a plastic storage box, pluged the pump into a GFCI outlet which is controlled by a switch & it's done. The filter you show in your diagram will act as a restriction ( cut down both water flow & pressure ) & is not necessary in waters as clear as we have here on Table Rock.

Have any questions or if you would like to see it, give me a call @ 1-417-334-4678.
