    Davey D40VA Vortex Sump Pump

    A Davey all-rounder, the General Purpose Vortex Sump Pumps are able to pump clean or grey water of neutral pH, with some soft or fine solids. Suitable applications include sump emptying, septic effluent disposal, water transfer or pumping of light slurries and factory waste. The D40VA models are suitable for pumping clean water or grey water containing some small, soft solids. The vortex, open impeller design is less susceptible to blockages.

    Installation & Priming

    Use a rope to position and retrieve the pump. Do not lower or retrieve the pump using the power lead as this may damage the cable entry seals, causing water leaks and unsafe operation. Don’t use this product for recirculating or filtering swimming pools, spas, etc. While these pumps are built to high safety standards, they are not approved for installations where people will be in the water while they are operating. Don’t pump abrasive materials. Sand and grit in the water being pumped will accelerate wear, causing shortened pump life. Keep your pump clean, particularly in situations where lint, hair or fibrous materials may get bound around the pump shaft. Regular inspection and cleaning will extend pump life. Make room for the float switch to operate.  automatic models have a float switch to turn them on when the water level rises and turn them off again when it has been pumped down to the safe operating level of the pump. If the float switch is not free to rise and fall, correct pump operation may not be possible. Don’t run your pump dry
