Portable Pumps

PORTABLE PUMPS         

Lesson Plan       Honda Pump             Additional Information

Portable pumps are an effective way to deliver water from static water sources. The Honda WH20X is capable of pumping up to 132 GPM. These pumps are best used to supply an engine since they have a relatively low pump pressure and are not capable of pumping great distances or overcoming significant head pressure.

Key Operational Points of using Portable Pumps

  1. Manually prime pump by pouring water in capped opening
    on top of pump.
  2. Fill hard suction hose with water to reduce priming time.
  3. Be sure hard suction couplings are air tight.
