Read 1 Customer Review(s) for Hozelock JET 3000 Garden Water Pump
Bought this to replace an earlier version of Hozelock's garden pump which I had to give up on due to an un-replaceable failed electrical component and the fact that Hozelock provide no support for discontinued products (be aware of this when considering whether to buy this one). On the plus side, the replacement pump works as well and efficiently as the previous model, but is much easier to put together and much less fiddly to get up and running with. Hozelock seem to have addressed a number of issues with the previous model that made it very user-unfriendly to set up and keep maintained. It's easier to clean this model than the previous one and in all respects, it appears to function well. On the downside, the build quality is noticeably lower, with most of the pump body now built of plastic instead of metal. It's impossible to know if the internal parts are also of a cheaper quality. Time will tell. This pump is also slightly more noisy than my previous one which was remarkably quiet for such a powerful pump. I can hear this new pump running even when I'm 30m away and with a number of bushes, trees and a 5m incline between me and it. Despite all this and the frustration of having to replace an otherwise perfectly good pump because of a failed switch, this pump does 'what it says on the tin'. If like me, you have to transport water 30m+ up a 5m incline to water your plants, it's a life-saver especially in summer when watering all of my vegetables previously required 30 bucketfulls carried up the hill to get the job done. Whether this new design is robust enough to stand the test of time, I cannot say. But it does the job pretty much straight out of the box.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Can this pump be used outside in all weathers, or does it need to be protected from rain?
A : I can confirm that whilst this pump is showerproof it is not waterproof. It is advisable to protect the pump from the elements as this will prolong the lifespan of the pump and not allow the pump to be exposed to temperatures which may cause the water inside to freeze and expand as this would cause damage to the internal mechanisms.
Q : I have a source of water in the ground in our garden, I have yet to find how far down the water level is, but I cannot see a figure for a suction height. Many of the pumps I have had before are impeller types and require a lot of fiddly priming to get them to suck. So I need the maximum height from which it will reliably draw.
A : I can confirm that this pump has a max suction height of 7m and a min/max head height of 2m - 35m Hozelock pumps are self-priming; therefore, they can be primed without having to fill the suction hose.
Q : How long is the power cable?
A : I can confirm that this pump has a power cable of around 1.5m
Q : can it be used to pump water from a 1st floor bath into a tub at ground floor?
A : I can confirm that this pump can be used to pump water from any still water source from a height of up to 7m and will pump water to a maximum of 35m. However, please note this is not designed to boost water mains pressure and should not be connected to a tap as a water source.
Q : From how low can the pump draw water below itself and does the pump self-prime ? How noisy is it ? Can the flow rate be adjusted ?
Can you answer this question? Yes I can
Q : can this be connected to the mains water tap for its supply?
A : Unfortunately, this is not suitable to connect to a mains water supply as its water source and is designed to pump from a tank, pond, or other large water sources. To boost mains pressure on a garden tap you would need a mains pressure booster.
Q : What is the diameter of the suction hose please?
A : I can confirm that this has a 1" suction hose.
Q : Can this be used in conjunction with a Hozelock sprinkler.
A : I can confirm that after checking the manual to connect this to a normal garden hose you would need to cut the stepped discharge connection ( to the relevant size then attach a 1" Threaded Tap Hose Pipe Connector.
Q : How far can it pump water through a normal garden hose?
A : after speaking to our technical team, I can confirm that this pump has a 35m head height.
