Hire a vacuum assist prime pump to efficiently displace large volumes of water. These pumps are used for anything from sewer bypass, wellpointing, general transfer and flood response.
The mechanical seal is cooled by oil during dry running - the pump does not have to be filled with water during start-up
A diaphragm vacuum pump is the best choice for suction - its reliability is high, and will not fail if water makes it past the float seal and into the pump.
There are 4 inch and 6 inch vacuum assist prime pumps available for hire, they come on their own trailer making it easy to transport to your site...
