AUSSIE PUMPS - SEPTIC TANKS SPECIALISTS
Septic tank pumps operate out of sight and out of mind most of the time. Submerged in an aggressive environment, the pumps in these tanks are crucial in keeping basic sewage systems working.
Aussie Pumps supply Tsurumi UTZ series submersibles which are ideal for septic tank installations and pump replacements.
“When handling effluent a reliable submersible pump is vital,” said Kurt Chapman from Aussie Pumps. “Many septic systems installed use cheap pumps just to meet a cost point. We recommend they are replaced with Tsurumi UTZ pumps because of their quality and suitability. Their cast iron body outlasts rolled 304 stainless steel equivalents, they are easy to service and suit the aggressive ph levels found in the tanks,” he said.
Designed specifically for effluent and sewage applications, the pump is fitted with a unique vortex style impeller that passes compressible solids of up to 35mm in diameter. The maximum flow available from the range is 440 lpm while the maximum lift, or vertical head is 12.5 metres.
The pumps are powered by single phase, capacitor start, electric motors in the range of 0.4kW to 0.75kW. All pumps are supplied with a heavy duty 10 metre submersible cable.
The automatic pumps feature a simple float control system that prevents dry running, reduces power consumption and extends operating life.
The pump’s motor is a dry type squirrel cage induction style housed in a watertight casing. It conforms to class E insulation and the UT pumps can be used in ambient temperatures of up to 40 degrees C.
The UT series incorporate a vortex impeller so performance is largely unaffected by minor wear. The unique vortex design allows solids in suspension to easily pass through the pump.
Tsurumi incorporate a number of features that enhance the life expectancy of the pump and cut maintenance costs. These include a unique anti- wicking cable gland. Water is prevented from wicking down inside the cable. The motor is protected even if the cable is damaged or the end accidentally immersed.
All Tsurumi pumps have a double silicon carbide mechanical seal. Both seal surfaces are submerged in an oil chamber, well away from the pumped liquid. A patented oil lifter ensures the mechanical seal faces are always lubricated and cooled, even if the pump is installed horizontally.

The Tsurumi UTZ automatic submersible pump is specifically designed for septic tanks and built for endurance and reliability.
