About Pumps & Pump Parts

Utility pump is a general term that refers to a wide range of pumps used for a variety of purposes. At Ace you will find a diverse selection of pumps designed for a full range of household jobs, with so many options to choose from, you are sure to find the ideal pump to fit your specific needs.

Most often, utility pumps are used to move fluids or other materials from one point to another. There are several factors to consider when selecting a pump. Submersible pumps can be fully immersed in liquid because the motor is contained in a water tight compartment. These types of pumps are ideal for removing water from window wells or they may be used in garden ponds or aquariums to keep water circulating. Non-submersible water pumps may be better suited for transferring water from one point to another via a discharge hose, such as removing water from a pool cover and transferring it to the lawn.

Pump operation is also important to consider. Electric water pumps are common and easy to use, but battery, gas and manual powered pumps are also available. Size and mobility should also be taken into account when choosing a pump. If you intend to use your pump occasionally and for more than one purpose, a portable, small water pump is ideal.

No matter what the job, Ace carries a full line of utility pumps to help you complete it. Choose from a variety of models and features sure to fit your budget and your needs.
