A practical and popular pump designed for pumping rain and utility water from barrels and other containers. With this pump you will not need to lift and fill heavy watering cans, fill them simply with ease - a standard 10l can in 20 seconds. The water level and the related switching of the pump is monitored by a float switch. Using a practical hook, hang the pump in the barrel so that it is just above the water level. A tap will prevent water from flowing out spontaneously due to gravity when the pump is turned off.
