Heat-Line offers simple yet effective submersible pump stands to compliment your water supply system. As in the case of any Heat-Line product, the installation is fast and efficient, and is provided with easy to follow and precise installation instructions. Never before has winterizing and servicing your cottage or lake home water supply system been so easy. When using Heat-Line’s submersible pump stand, you will find peace of mind knowing that you have year-round running water.
The use of submersible pumps in lakes, rivers, and other water bodies is becoming increasingly common. A submersible or deep well pump provides greater capacity and pumping capability at greater distances and elevations than a common suction or jet pump. Installing a submersible pump in this type of application requires a specialized stand to keep the submersible pump partially vertical (at least 45 degrees), stabilized from motor torque, and above the water body bottom where sediment can be collected.
Heat-Line offers a submersible pump stand kit which provides vertical steadiness, stabilization, and mechanical protection for your pump, without jeopardizing performance. It is designed to suit many types of submersible pumps and may be adjusted in the field to suit various conditions or requirements. Heat-Line can also provide custom submersible pump stands to suit larger pumps at the request of our customers.

(Refer to install guide) You will also require pump/ adjustable pliers to complete the connection of the submersible pump to your pipe fitting (Philmac Male Adapter) and a 1/2″ wrench to complete the tightening of the anti-torque bolt.
Q – Where do I use the submersible pump stand product?
A – The submersible pump stand is designed to be used in lake, river, and or other water body applications where the installation of a submersible pump is required.
