The Aquaking Submersible Pump is a robust, heavy duty product that moves vast quantities of water. They’re the perfect pump if you need to move a whole water butts worth of water quickly, but they also have other uses! This can include anything from emptying pools or clearing a flood in a basement. Each pump needs an adapter to convert to one of 2 of the most popular sizes in hydroponics. These are 13mm (or 16mm outer), which is standard garden hosepipe size and 25mm pipe. The adapter fits onto the side of the pump and your hose fits onto that. Aquaking Submersible Pumps not only move a large volume of water, but they can also lift it some height too! The 10,000 model has a maximum height of 8m, although the higher it has to pump, the lower the flow rate gets.
The Aquaking Submersible Pump draws water in from the underside, meaning it will work in low volumes. Please be sure to not let it run dry, as this can cause the motor to overheat and burn out. They also are capable of working at depths of up to 7m (10,000L model) making suitable for pretty much all hydroponic reservoirs.
Aquaking Q2503 – 5,000L/ hr (83L per minute)
Aquaking Q50011 – 10,000L/hr (166L per minute)
These pumps have a 2 pump European plug but have a converter in the box to make them suitable for UK sockets.
Alternatives to the Aquaking Submersible pump
At Straight Up Hydroponics, we stock a few other pumps, but none as powerful as these. We keep in the MJ1000 and MJ500 which are standard inclusions with hydroponic systems. If you want to have a look at these options, please click on this link.
