Submersible pumps, which are more efficient than jet pumps, contain a hermetically sealed motor and are used for pushing fluid to the surface. We offer submersible pumps for several applications, including mines, manholes, construction sites, sewage and other areas with a high concentration of solids. Our submersible pumps come in several different varieties in order to handle the different conditions you may face in the field:

Agitator Slurry Pumps – Heavy-duty submersible pumps with mechanical agitators for pumping high concentrations of slurry, sand, mud, and silt.

Solids Handling Pumps – Recessed impeller style pumps for any solids laden pumping applications: wastewater, stormwater, sewage, and debris.

Dewatering Pumps – Heavy duty abrasion resistant pumps for dewatering: mines, power plant sumps, manholes, and construction sites. Also as water supply pumps (3/4 to 75 hp).

Corrosion Resistant Pumps – For severe corrosion: all 316 stainless-steel recessed impeller pumps. (1 to 10 hp) For moderate corrosion: Rhino Coated aluminum with stainless steel impellers, shafts, and hardware (1.5 hp to 75 hp).

No matter what pump you’re looking for, Piranha Pumps will deliver on your expectations, however high they may be. When it comes to the best heavy-duty submersible pumps in the business, look no further than Piranha Pumps.

At Piranha Pumps, you can rest assured knowing that our dredging and pumping machines are powerful, efficient, and reliable.

Our business began in 1961 as a representative for various pump manufacturers. The pumping industry was still emerging as newer technology was being developed. As time went on, we found the public was missing out on various new technological advances in not only pumps but in dredging equipment as well. We then transitioned into a manufacturer for pumps and now boast an inventory of over 75 different pumps and pumping systems.

As a "Woman Owned" business, we have successfully developed our business from small dewatering pumps to large industrial dredges and have dotted the world with our business products. We have a strong market demand on almost every continent and a continuous demand for all of our quality products. It is our mission here at Piranha Pumps to evolve and improve our products and services to accommodate the ever-changing global market and unique needs of our diverse customer base. We aim to lead the market with our competitive pricing and industrially advanced equipment while maintaining growth and customer satisfaction.
