Puddle pumps (or ‘sucker’ pumps) do not need to be fully submerged in water.  And due to low suction depths these pumps are used to pump very low levels of water without overheating. Consequently. this makes puddle pumps ideal for draining flooded cellars, sumps and clearing spillages.  Electric puddle pumps can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Puddle Sucker Pumps

Sucker pumps can move clean and dirty water and are suited to narrow sumps and chambers, or can negate the requirement for a chamber or sump completely as they can be used above surface level.  Due to the lightweight portable nature of puddle sucker pumps, they are ideal for emergency flooding situations. This is because they can be transported and immediately commissioned to begin surface and shallow water pumping.  In addition, puddle suckers with auto sensors can be used for long-term, low-level water removal. The sensor automatically triggers the pump to start when a pre-determined water level is reached.

A puddle pump is a special type of pump which is automatic or manually operated for low level water that does not need to be fully submersed in water.

What are the advantages of a puddle pump?

Puddle pumps can pump to very low levels of water (i.e a puddle) approx 1-3mm deep,  without the pump overheating or becoming damaged. This removes the need for a chamber to be dug, consequently, there is less disruption to your premises.


Puddle pumps are ideal for portable water removal from your site or property. Call us for advice on water drainage, pumping surface water as well as removing flood water, and extracting water from basements.

Can a puddle pump run dry?

As they are designed for operating in low water levels, puddle pumps can run dry for a few seconds without causing damage to the pump.


What is the difference between standard submersible pumps and puddle pumps?

Puddle pumps differ primarily from standard submersible pumps in that they can pump shallow bodies of water without overheating which subsequently can cause damage to the pump.

As a result of this feature, puddle pumps are commonly used as portable devices for stand alone operations such as basement drainage following a burst pipe or emptying tanks. In addition, most puddle pumps are manually operated.



At Alton Pump Services we supply a range of low level puddle pumps, designed to remove shallow floodwater. If you need help finding the right solution for your needs, the experienced professionals at Alton Pump Services can help. We supply, install and repair the biggest names in puddle pumps including:
