This submersible trash pump handles sand, solids, leaves, algae and other debris up to 3 / 8" x 1" in size. Ideal for waterfalls where algae and leaves are a problem, recirculating systems where solids removal is needed, dewatering applications where sand and sludge are being pumped, or any other dirty or clean water application where a high quality, continuous duty pump is needed. Pump includes a 2" MPT discharge, 115v motor, 20' power cord and two year limited warranty.

  • This product is warranted against any mechanical or material defects for a period of two years from the date of purchase (impellers are a wear item and are not covered by warranty).
  • This warranty does not cover accidental damage to the product due to abuse or negligence by the consumer.
  • In the event of a warranty claim, please return the pump postage prepaid with the original receipt for repair or exchange. No warranty claims will be honored without the original receipt. You must call EasyPro for an RA number before returning 800-448-3873.
  • The manufacturer or supplier shall not be held liable for any damages caused by defective components or materials of this pump; or for loss incurred because of the interruption of service; or any consequential / incidental damages and expenses arising from the production, sale, use or misuse of this product.

This pump must stay submerged entirely when operating. If used in a skimmer, the debris net must be kept clean to ensure adequate water flow to pump. Running pump low on water will cause overheating and premature failure which is not covered under warranty.

Each year we receive numerous pumps back that simply have a small stone lodged in the impeller, are plugged from lack of cleaning or do not work due to low voltage caused by an overloaded circuit. These are not warranty items. Please take the time to verify your problem is actually a defective pump before returning. EasyPro will pay postage to return pump to you provided it is a warranty issue. If you send a pump in for warranty and it checks out fine — you will also be responsible for the cost of return postage.
