Self-priming pumps and auto-prime pumps, are a type of centrifugal pumps, but are made with an external casing that primes an inner pump or volute by flooding it with the same liquid that must be pumped. This type of pump is recommended when pumping a large volume of water, industrial wastewater, and raw sewage. Self-priming pumps can provide the safest, most cost-effective pumping solution for larger liquid volumes.
Apart from it being cost-effective, self-prime pumps like those made by Toolkwip are very safe to use. As they are mounted at ground level above the liquid to be pumped, no hoists or cranes are needed to lower and submerge this type of pump, affording safer and easier access. A Self-priming water pump or self-priming pump for other liquids, is easier to operate, set up, repair and maintain.
