Questions & Answers for "Wayne Self-Priming Automatic Submersible Utility Water Pump - 3000 GPH, 1/4 HP, Model# EEAUP250"

Question

Can this unit be used as a fire hydrant?

Can this unit be used as a fire hydrant if placed in a 2'-3' depth stream with a 100' water hose or PVC connected?

Also, would there be sufficient water pressure for such an application. If not, do you sell a pump more suitable to my needs?

Thanks

This utility pump should not be used as a fire hydrant. Please see item number 496950 (Endurance Marine Firefighting System — 1 1/2in. Ports, 3600 GPH, 100 PSI, 205cc Briggs & Stratton Engine) as it will be a better fit to your application.

This pump should not be left outdoors year round especially in below freezing conditions. Water expands when it freezes which would damage the pump.

Question

Does this pump have an auto shut off? Also, what depth will it pump down too (example: 1/4 inch).

If it runs dry for a few minutes would the pump burn out.

Is there a strainer or something to keep "junk" from getting into the pump?

I will be using this in a basement during heavy rains and it will be pumping very dirty water.

This Wayne pump has a bottom suction with built in strainer to keep larger debris from entering pump.to protect the impeller. What passes through strainer will not damage pump.

Question

Is the pump suited to handle 2 hrs of use daily?

Wayne Auto Utility Pump - 1 1/4in. Discharge, 3000 GPH, Model# EEAUP250
Answer to other question "This pump is not designed for use in a "water feature" application or left on for continual constant duty"

Is a couple of hours a day considered "continual".

Wondering if couple of pumps could be used in an endless pool application. I.e. creating current for swimming against (minimal head (less then 2 ft), minimal piping/resistance)

Is pump is all or nothing (full volume output when on)?

Noise? Loud or relatively quiet (any Decibel ratings) when not completely submerged?

This pump would not be able to use two hours a day. You can use a pool pump that is available at Northern Tool. That would be item number 31625 or 109459 (See below).
