Utility pump is typically used for intermittent water transfer or dewatering applications such as draining a water heater or a small pool or transferring water from one location to another. PexUniverse has a wide range of utility water pump types from Little Giant and Liberty Pumps brands.
Utility Pump Types
The majority of utility pumps are designed for handling only clean water without any sediment, oils, chemicals or additives and are therefore called “utility water pumps”. They can be categorized into non-submersible (in-line), submersible and portable types.
In-Line Utility Pumps
In-line, or non-submersible type of utility pumps are manual type, designed for use in out-of-water applications only. Their distinctive difference is (2) outlets to which garden hose or other piping is connected. Since their motor has little or no overheat protection, these pumps can only be used intermittently with run and “cool-off” time specific to each model.
Submersible Utility Pumps
A submersible utility pump can be fully submerged into water and can be either manual or automatic type.
Portable Utility Pumps
A portable utility pump, whether submersible or non-submersible, is suited for frequent use in various applications, generally has a durable body, a handle and convenient means for connecting and disconnecting the water hose or piping.
Manual utility pump is operated by plugging the power cord into the electrical outlet. These can be used for on-demand dewatering of basements, pools and similar submersible applications.
An automatic utility pump comes with a water sensing switch or a float which turns the pump On or Off automatically as water level rises or falls.

Why don't we show the price?
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
