Global Water GPD & GPV series submersible sump pumps are the reliable solution when pumping drainage water, stormwater and wastewater.



The Global Water Submersible Sump Pump range provides a rugged and reliable solution for pumping drainage water, stormwater and wastewater containing solids for commercial, building services and industrial applications.

Single phase units are fitted with float switches for fully automatic operation and have in-built overload protection. Units are continuously rated and can handle water temperatures up to 40 °C continuous duty and 60 °C intermittent duty.

The GPD Series are all-stainless steel construction, fitted with 5 m electric cables. Units have a semi-open impeller that will pass 10 mm solids – ideal for greywater or effluent applications.

The GPV Series are heavy duty units constructed from cast iron and stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance, with either single or three phase electric motor. A 10 m power cable comes as standard.

All GPV pumps are fitted with chokeless impellers to enable the handling of large spherical solids up to 100 mm in diameter. 100 mm and 150 mm units are available for mounting on sliding brackets with guide rails.

Larger flow rate or higher head units are available on request.

Our GPV range of high-quality vortex pumps are designed to suit a range of projects from light industrial and building services projects, through to commercial and wastewater applications.

What are vortex pumps?

Vortex pumps are a form of submersible pumps used to pump dirty water, including sewage, and waste, stormwater & groundwater applications.

Our pumps can successfully transfer water at temperatures of up to 40 °C continuous duty, and 80 °C intermittent duty.

European designed and using the most advanced technology, our vortex pumps are fitted with chokeless semi-open impellers which facilitates smooth, non-clogging transfer of water enabling the pass of spherical solids up to 50mm.

We can also accommodate for larger flow rate units upon request.

Our vortex pumps are also made from 304 stainless steel, giving it a level of corrosion resistance against typical trade waste and stormwater applications. A 10m power cable comes as standard with our GPV pump range.

So why should you choose Global Water for your customised system? Our team of highly trained technicians work closely with clients to develop a complete solution that complies with their KPI requirements. We focus on delivering outcomes that provide the highest efficiency & most cost-efficient solution.

The benefits of using vortex pumps

Many submersible water pumps are only designed to be used with clean water. They operate within a closed multi-vane impeller, to pump out the water. However, as liquids and particles are constantly passing through the vanes of the impeller restricting the size of solids that can be pumped without blocking. Over time the clearances become worn and the pump less effective at its job.

Vortex pumps are designed for use with dirty water, as their design reduces the amount of contact the impeller has with the water and solids in suspensions. Instead, the impeller creates a swirling vortex to pump out the water. Wear is therefore greatly reduced and your pump will last for a longer amount of time. Vortex pumps also require little maintenance and are more reliable, making them suitable for storm water, effluent or trade waste applications, and are frequently used for residential or light commercial settings.

The channel pumps difference

Channel pumps are another design that works well in dirty water applications. A channel impeller has a single spiral vane that does make contact with the dirty water, but the large free passage of the impeller allows soft solids and abrasive particles to pass through the impeller.

We stock a whole range of dirty water pumps, including submersible vortex pumps which minimise the risk of clogging, vortex submersible pumps and channel impeller pumps that pass larger solids. Not sure which one you require? Before you buy, why not check with us to see what you need? Alternatively, ask us about our entire packaged pump stations, which are manufactured by us and provide you with a complete solution to your wastewater pumping needs.

Effluent Pumps

Our effluent pumps are the best in the market. Used to transport grey water that contains solids of 20mm or more in diameter, Global Water’s effluent pumps create a smooth transition of wastewater from septic systems, drain fields, and grey water removal systems.

The submersible vortex pumps are the preferred option for this type of water transfer. Fitted with choke-less semi-open impellers, these pumps create a swirling vortex to pump out the water without blockage.

Our GPD & GPV Series Submersible Sump Pumps range are the effluent pumps perfect for commercial, building services, and industrial applications. All GPV pumps are fitted with vortex or single-vane choke-less impellers to enable the handling of large spherical solids up to 100mm in diameter.

Standard inclusions of pumps within this effluent pump range include corrosion-resistance, highly durable stainless-steel or cast-iron construction, and the ability to handle liquid temperatures of up to 60°C.
