This pump can run dry. When it does, there is a thermal protection circuit that will turn the pump off when it exceeds the max operating temperature.

Question

Is this suitable for watering a lawn from a hot tub?

I have a hot tub in the back (using a chemical-free system from ahhnatural.com). I would like to water the front lawn (about 50 feet away with a 6-foot fence in between) using the water from the hot tub. Will this pump generate sufficient flow for a sprinkler head on the lawn?

Staff Answer
This Portable Transfer Pump can be used to feed a pressure washer as long as the pressure washer uses close to 6 gallons per minute. Otherwise back pressure could cause the pump to fail. A better choice would be an on demand pump listed below.

answer 2
if the pump is positioned below the tank, it will do well. I"m not sure how well it will do pulling up hill. if you are pulling from the bottom of the tank, it will suck the tank dry if you let it.

Pumps have to be certified for drinking water. It may be a process to certify. The water would have to be completely sterile. As long as you are not consuming the water, it should not be a problem.

I would not use it for potable water. Find a pump specifically certified for potable water use. Risking you health is not something you can put a price on.

answer 3
I just purchased this pump, and there is a silicone or other lubricant in the fluid housing that would contaminate the water. The impeller is rubber or a rubber compound so needs to be lubricated some beyond simple water. Additionally, because the impeller is rubber or a rubber compound, it will degenerate, possibly contaminating the water further. I wouldn't trust it for potable water at all.
