Titan TTB582PMP 400W Automatic Dirty Water Pump 240V
the old blue ones were better
we use pumps to empty a sump and over the years have had a few,
screwfix seem to have changed from the aqua coloured pumps to these titan ones, it lasted about 6 weeks and is running about 10 to 15 mins every 3 to 4 hours, it kept tripping out, when I checked it, it would only run without load on pump (not in water) when we put it back in sump the pump tripped out, either not water proof or a water pump that did not like to pump water,
screwfix replaced with no quibble and the new one is in place, I will see how long it lasts

This pump was not really suitable my requirements as the float needed a bigger head of water to operate.
I needed it to pump out a flood in the void under the floor boards and managed this by manually raising the float into a position where the pump was activated, not ideal but the pump worked with excellent results and at an exceptional speed.
Looking through the instruction book I came across details of an accessory that would have been an ideal solution for my needs. Unfortunately I could not find a supplier for this.
I would recommend this pump for its speed and quiet operation but beware of the limitations of the automatic float mechanism.

Worked first time but I did have to adjust the length of the float switch cord - the factory setting was a bit too short which prevented the thing from switching on. Now seems to be working perfectly but only installed 2 days ago so cannot rate reliability better than 4 star.

Worst purchase with screewfix
Have had one pump that didn't work at all and now a second that has a poor float. Doesn't switch pump on when fully submerged except when thumped.
