Hints & Tips
With the torrential rain forecast to continue for a few days yet many households probably wish they had a water pump, for even if the house itself is watertight, cellars could well become flooded as water seeps through the floors.
We still have good supplied of pumps from Loncin, a leading manufacturer, and can deliver most of them the following day. Please ring us if you are considering buying one as we are here to offer advice on the best pump for your needs.
This one, the Loncin LC80ZB35-4.5Q 3” Petrol Powered Water Pump can pump 48,000 litres an hour and is great for pumping out flooded buildings and cellars.
And in the summer, knowing our weather, you can always use it as an easier way of irrigating the garden.
This model has a 163 cc engine quiet in running and producing few vibrations and is a centrifugal design soundly constructed with ceramic seals.
It is housed in a solid metal frame and weighs 28 kg.
We deliver it free the next working day and it has a two year maker’s warranty and costs £169, over £80 less than Loncin’s recommended retail price.
Given the amount of debris sluicing around you may well need this type of water pump, the Loncin LC80WB30-4.5Q 3” Petrol Powered Dirty-Water Pump.

It can shift 45,000 litres an hour and is made from aluminium alloy to keep the eight down and has an aluminium impellor which will not rust.
The power comes from a 196 cc engine and it is a centrifugal pump that does not need priming.
It costs £249, a substantial reduction on the recommended retail price of £381 and has a two year maker’s warranty. Again, delivery is free the next working day.
And this one, the Loncin LC50ZB60-4.5Q 2” Petrol Powered High Lift Water Pump is the one you need if you have deep cellars or rooms to pump or if the water needs to be pumped to a higher level.
The 196 cc engine is mean on fuel and yet easy to start and can pump 30,000 litres an hour up to a maximum height of around 53 metres.
The 196 cc engine has a handy cut-off device should the oil level run low. And a double impellor is made from aluminium alloy to prevent corrosion.
It costs £249, over £120 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and is delivered free the next working day. There is a two year warranty from Loncin.
We have a wide selection of pumps on these pages and you can always give us a ring on 08454 588905 if you are uncertain.
