A submersible pump (or sub pump) is a device which has an air-tight sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body. The whole assembly is submerged in the fluid to be pumped. Submersible pumps push fluid to the surface as opposed to jet pumps having to pull fluids. Submersibles are more energy efficient than jet pumps.
Sub pumps are used in irrigation systems, wells, sewer lines, in basements and any other job that needs to drain a large body of water out.
Swapping out a submersible pump in a system you will need to look on the tag near the end of the power cord that shows the pump’s model number and date code. The date code will be marked as “date code”, “code”, or “MOD”. On pumps that do not come with a power cord, the pump’s info label on the pump will have the model number and date code on it. The date code is usually a combination of letters and numbers.
