View our range of 3 Inch Transfer Pumps
Transfer pumps are designed for moving clean water.
The poly transfer pumps are capable of transferring some mild acids, salt water, wastewater & milk.
Trash pumps have the highest flow rates and are suitable for moving water that contains some debris and solids. They are popular on construction sites. See explanation below of the difference between a transfer pump and a trash pump.

Transfer pumps are suited to move clean water and a trash pump is suited to move water with solids and debris.
The difference between a transfer pump and trash pump lies in the impeller design and casing accessibility.
Firstly, the impeller of a trash pump is open like that of a vortex pump and has not front shroud. The reason these impellers are used in a trash pump is that they let solids pass freely through the pump.
A transfer pump, however, has a closed vane impeller meaning that it is easy for debris to wedge in between the front and back shrouds of the impeller. The benefit of this type is that they can generate flow and pressure much more efficiently.
Secondly, the casing of a trash pump usually has a door and lock mechanism to that if something does get stuck in the pump, you can easily open this door at the front and remove the jammed object. Please see an image of a trash pump with this feature below:
I ordered my pump (Solar fountain pump with battery backup) on Friday afternoon and received it Tuesday. There was a substantial cost saving when compared with the local irrigation supplier suggested by the manufacturer. They would have had to order it in specially yet Strongman had stock and it was delivered to my door. Marvelous!!
Thanks Marion for your prompt action on my order. The pump motor arrived within a week and the bore is back in service. (purchased a Franklin Electric 4″ submersible motor)
I have bought two sump pumps from this business in the last few years. This is an excellent business as Marion has always been extremely helpful in choosing the best pump for the job. I have been very happy with how quickly my pumps have been delivered. An excellent business to deal with.
Thank you for your assistance in processing our order over the weekend. The pond pump arrived and was left at our door when we woke at 6.30 am today. Fantastic service. Much appreciated.
Thank you for your outstanding fast and friendly service. I highly recommend StrongmanPumps for easy ordering, great pricing and super fast delivery. I wouldn’t hesitate to order from you again in future.

Submersible bore pump at an excellent price and don’t be put off by the distance away as freight service was very prompt and included in the overall price. My first call or email will be to Marion when I need another pump. Highly recommend Strongman pumps.
