Bosch GARDENPUMP 18 18v Cordless Submersible Water Pump
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch Power4all Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the Power4all 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
Power4all has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember Power4all signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed Power4all to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

great pump with good flow at 25m use it to fill my watterbutts and use it with spray gun to water the allotment good quality from bosch battery last about 30 mins a little pricey is my only gripe other wise very very good
I've tried several battery pumps over the years and this is by far the best. The feed from the water barrel has the power of a tap connection. Best feature is that it uses the same batteries I already have for Bosch hedge cutter and strimmer. I took a chance buying from tooled-up as I hadn't used them before. The price was better than Amazon and delivery almost as quick, so I'm a happy customer.
A very convenient, yet powerful little water pump. It is small enough to go inside my IBC which other pumps are too large. My 2.5Ah battery can pump around 300 - 500 L per charge with a 25m hose. It is powerful enough to water my plants via a 40m hose. You can have the pump on while the water spray gun at the other end stays shut without damaging the pump. So you power on the pump, then walk around to water the plants in different parts of the garden while controlling the spray gun on and off as you wish. Tooled-up delivered the product quickly and kept me informed of the status at all time.
Great little pump. Quite expensive but worth while. Great for allotment watering
Bought for pumping water harvested during rainfall on a set of 4 full allotment plots. So far I have pumped a few hundred Litres from the rain harvesting from Shed roofs, guttering and into barrels or tanks. I've with this pump, moved it to where I actually will want it near my stock that requires watering or feeding. As the pump will also power and supply the incoming micro irrigation system I am in the process of putting in. What used to be a 2 hour daily job during peak seasons of heat/no rainfall; as all the watering had to be done by carrying it in watering cans to your plot and watering your crops by hand for as long as it takes or was needed. Now those hours per day often, can now be a relaxing time after simply switching the pump on, using the timer and when it has run it's course; change which section of that garden requires watering. Then finish up wall the remaining watering by simply moving the pump to the next watering point and connect to the next part of the irrigation loop requiring either watering or watering and feeding! As this will pump water out to 25m, that is ideal as each of the 4 plots is 25m long x 5m wide. So with just 50m of hose pipe and a few empty barrels I can effectively move water from the top of both plots down to the bottom plots. The pump shifts a fair volume of water, and will empty a rain barrel in a few minutes. Mine is destined to be also used in conjunction with IBC Tanks and an enhanced water harvesting set up till I can work out how to farm water at height to move more towards gravity fed drip feed and watering and use the pump to power an aquaponics set up... Either way, this pump is brilliant for what has been a tough fix. Even without having the full micro irrigation system set up at 100%, or a full network of rain barrels full to the brim ready to take over all the watering duties; what does work & run makes that section of the allotments much easier and hands free watering. Leaving me time to install the remaining hundreds of meters of hose and emitters. Then set up enough barrels or IBC tanks to really be able to hold a decent reservoir of water. I have no doubt this pump will be central in moving the water around as and when needed. In a pinch this would power a Karcher pressure washer if you had a decent source of water for it to drain from. Yup; it is that good! I'm a professional bespoke gardener and arborist, & I can see me "borrowing" this for Professional jobs, when moving water from A to B and with only Battery power as an option. This fits the bill & does the job! I did however go for the 4mah batteries, I ordered 2 of them; to ensure I have enough pump time when I max out my water storage abilities. I know I will be able to move the water amount I need on the 2 charges in those. If not a few more will be bought. As no doubt the water burden will increase as more stock is grown or the weather requires. Top bit of kit, well impressed. Really quick delivery and no issues with the company who supplied it at a great price!
first class product dose as the box says shame batteries are very dear
Absolutely spot on. It will make watering my garden a lot easier
Easy to et up and works well. V happy buyer

Excellent pump. Just what I needed
Absolutely amazing. Very powerful
Amazing water pump, recommend to everyone.
You only have to watch the video for how this pump works. It performs perfectly, the flexibility of being able to move from one water butt to another is great. We use this pump on our allotment and our back garden. We are very pleased.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : What diameter hole will this pump pass through. Such as an IBC
A : The pump unit itself has a diameter of around 9cm so I imagine you would ideally want a hole a bit bigger than this or it may be quite difficult to get it in and out again.
Q : What is the head i.e. how high will it pump.
A : Hi John, the user manual states the pump can be submerged down to a maximum depth of 1.8 metres so I'm guessing it can't pump much higher than that.
Q : Hi, will my AL1820 ac 1.5ah 18v li-ion carver and battery , for my professional drill fit the Bosch garden pump??
A : Hi Sarah, the Bosch Professional (Blue) and Garden/DIY (Green) ranges do not share battery compatibility I'm afraid. The batteries look quite similar, but they won't work!
Q : I have a large garden with multiple water butts, and multiple raised beds Can this be taken from butt to butt What size battery would i need.
A : Hi Caryl, the product is primarily intended for pumping rainwater from a water tank to irrigate flower beds, lawns and vegetable beds. Its hard to say how effective it will be or what battery you would need if you are attempting to transfer water over large distances but bear in mind the maximum hose length it can be used with is 25m, and the larger the ah rating of a battery the longer it will run continuously before needing to be recharged. With a 2.5ah battery, Bosch say the GARDENPUMP 18 will run for approximately 30 mins, transferring a maximum amount of 1000 litres in that time, so that gives you a rough idea of its capabilities.
Q : What battery + charger do I need to power the GARDEN PUMP 18 - and which the battery will fit inside the GARDEN PUMP case? Cheers, Will If you can send me an appropriate link on your website, so much the better.
A : Hi Will, I'm not sure if you realise you can purchase it with these included? Under the price there is a drop down menu that says "Please select Batteries" and "Please select Charger" so you can choose from any of the options we can send it out with here - alternatively it is compatible with all Bosch Power4All batteries and chargers which are available separately and are all linked up to the product in the "accessories.." column on the right.
Q : 1. Can you please supply me with a copy of this pump's performance graph, i.e. delivery in litres/min against delivery head? I have a specific purpose in mind: drawing water from a stream about 25 m from my allotment to fill a tank from which I will run dripper lines to veg. Stream will be dammed and, as the land slopes very slightly down in my direction, there will be a very small positive static head. 2. When will the layflat hose be aailable? I am thinking of getting the 32 mm version to maximise flow. .
A : Hi Vernon, I'm afraid we don't have this information and it sounds like more of a question for Bosch themselves. You may have already contacted them but you can make enquiries to their product support team via the Bosch UK Home and Garden website.
