Titan TTB583PMP 750W Dirty Water Pump 220-240V
Pump Is Fine.
I purchased this pump to get rainwater from the footings I was digging out for an extension. there were approx. 12metres of footing 600mm wide which had about 100mm water in. the pump cleared it once going in about 20 mins.
few small niggles it sucks from about 30mm from the bottom so I had to dig a sump for the pump to clear the water completely.
It could do with an "upright" slot in the handle so the on/off float can be held in the on position, as in my case the water level I was pumping was too low for the float, so it was always off. There is a slot going horizontal to limit the float height but this still lets the float drop to below horizontal and therefore the pump wont run. I just used 3/4 elastic bands to hold it upright against the body of the pump, maybe a cable tie when the bands snap!!
another is don't buy the roll flat hose to go with it. it forms too many "kinks" enough to stop the pump from getting going as they provide several blocks, I have to keep un kinking the pipe to get the pump to prime up, once its going it works really well.
I run mine in clean water after use to clean everything up.

dirty water pump
Bought this to replace pump in septic tank. Does the job well and soon had water level back under control.
Watch out for the outlet fittings which are slightly oversize compared to similar pumps.
Otherwise good value for money

Titan Water pump
Unfortunately my pump didn't operate properly on unpacking. The RCD was intermittant and eventually when the pump did start it cut out.
I checked that it wasn't blocked as the manual suggests but no luck.
Screwfix offered instant replacement so hopefully just a faulty machine - will post another review with replacement.If it works value for money!
if draining shallow areas manually lift the float switch. The cable does not fit into the handle eaisily as described hence 4 stars for features.
