Immersible pumps are a popular choice when searching for an all-round pump, as they have been designed to be operated in a dry environment that might flood at some point or another.
At one end of the immersible pump is a float switch that turns off the blower motor to prevent water reaching the cooling fan if immersed. The opposite end is also enclosed with a fan, and the pump is encased with frames and a layer of grease to prevent water from seeping into the motor. This means that an immersible pump can be used in any location where flooding is a risk (basements, under-building carparks, stairwells, etc). Immersible pumps are more cost-effective for the rare flooding situation, but if the motor will be continually submerged in water, a submersible water pump is the correct option
Aside from giving you peace of mind through its clever design, the immersible water pump is often easier to service, less expensive to buy, and easier to operate. Often, these pumps can easily handle solids and liquids, allowing for several suitable situations such as within stormwater drains.
