Einhell GE-PW 46
Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
With a powerful 4-stroke engine! Whether for simple evacuation or suction for restitution (for irrigation, for example), the Einhell GE-PW 46 benefits from a 4.6 kW heat engine which makes it possible to achieve a flow rate 23,000 l/h with a maximum delivery height of 26 m. Thanks to the 3.6 L tank with which it is equipped, it also allows extended operating phases while offering a suction height of 6.5 m. It also comes with various standard equipment (threaded adapters and hoses, strainer, drain plug for waste water disposal, etc.) and is installed on a solid steel tube frame to provide excellent stability during operation. and easy transportation. .
My opinion : If you are looking for the best performance for your thermal water pump, there is no need to look any further, it is clearly the Einhell that you need! Of all the models I have tested, I was literally blown away by its flow: it pumps fast and hard. The fact that it is equipped with a 4-stroke engine also makes it more qualitative and this allows us to hope for a good lifespan, especially since the manufacturing quality is there. As for the start-up, it is quite classic and does not present any great difficulty, especially since the brand provides all the connections for the delivery and suction pipes. Even when it comes to noise, it is quite quiet compared to others. It really is flawless and one of the best investments you can make!
GMP Guide 15.22
Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
Effective in clear water and slightly dirty water! This thermal water pump GMP 15.22 from Güde offers an efficient solution for drainage or irrigation in the absence of electricity. Powered by a 1.9 HP 4-stroke petrol engine, it has a flow rate of 15,000 l/h with a maximum delivery height of 22 m and a suction lift of 6 m. Ultra solid thanks to its die-cast aluminum pump body, it also benefits from an intuitive design for easy use, in particular with its bleed and water drain screws, its hose connections with clamps or even its start. reversed accompanied by an on/off switch. . Finally, it comes with 2 pipes: a first delivery pipe 10 m long and a second suction pipe 4 m long.
My opinion : When choosing a water pump (and as with most thermal appliances), 4-stroke gasoline engines should be preferred and that is why I wanted to present this Güde to you: it is a very good alternative if you are not entirely convinced for the Einhell of which I have just spoken to you. Although its motor is slightly less powerful and therefore its flow lower, it is still more than enough in most situations and should therefore give you complete satisfaction. Especially since in addition, for this price, we are even entitled to 2 tubes included, as well as all the accessories and the filter, which is still appreciable. If she tempts you, do not hesitate!
Einhell GC-PW 16
Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
For large amounts of water! The Einhell GC-PW 16 is capable of pumping up to 14,000 l/h over a head of up to 28 m, thanks to the presence of a high-power 4-stroke petrol engine (1.6 kW ). Equipped with all the main safety devices (in particular concerning the lack of oil and the non-return valve), it also has all the necessary pressure and suction connections to multiply the possible uses. It is also perfectly protected while being easy to handle (filler cap to fill it, drain cap to evacuate residual water, carrying handle to move it and take it anywhere, etc.). Finally, it is mounted on a sturdy metal frame with rubber feet that guarantee stability and dampen vibrations.
My opinion : A good price-performance ratio ! Compared to my favorite Einhell, this model is in a lower range but nevertheless has enough assets to convince you. The most important thing, of course, is that the 4-stroke engine has not disappeared in favor of a 2-stroke, enough to guarantee good longevity. But above all, with its good power, it provides a more than reasonable flow and more than enough for drainage or irrigation. Although this version ignores the integral metal structure, the current base is not lacking in interest since it fulfills its stabilizer function well and a handle remains present. Easy to start and use, I’d say it’s one of the best choices you can make for under $200.

Up to 30,000 l/h! The Eberth GW3-ERWP20 water pump is incredibly powerful and offers a flow capable of meeting all expectations (field and garden irrigation, basement drainage, swimming pool water removal, etc.). It must be said that it is equipped with a 2-stroke heat engine whose power reaches 5.5 HP, enough to suck even at a height of 7 m, ensuring a delivery height of up to 30 m. Thanks to its generous 3.6L tank, it can also run for 9 hours straight with the addition of continuously adjustable flow via the throttle. It also has the suction and pressure accessories to connect the pipes necessary for its operation and is integrated in a solid frame which, in addition to making it more stable, allows it to be transported more easily.
My opinion : If this Eberth has something to impress with its flow rate of 30,000 liters per hour, the fact that it is equipped with a 2-stroke engine should not be missed. These versions are certainly more nervous, hence these capacities, but they also wear out more quickly… It is therefore a detail to know before giving it your preference! But know that apart from this detail, I found that it was a very suitable model. It starts easily, like any gasoline-powered machine, so you can easily take advantage of its power. The brand has also done things well by including the different possible adapters and a frame that allows a good grip. An interesting pump if you have to manage large quantities of water!

With this thermal water pump, VidaXL offers a more compact alternative. Measuring just 32cm long and tall, it also opts for a lightweight construction, enough to be carried wherever use is needed and also easy to store, whether in a garage, shed or even a van. . Its sturdy steel frame even incorporates a handle that stabilizes it and protects it from damage. Due to its format, it obviously incorporates a smaller motor but whose power of 1.2 kW still allows a delivery head of 35 m and a flow rate of up to 7,000 l/h. To cope with everything, it is finally easy to start, thanks in particular to its recoil launcher.
My opinion : Of all the cheap thermal water pumps I have had in my hands, this VidaXL is the one that left the best impression on me. Of course, since the engine is weaker and the flow is less constant, it is less suitable for rapid emptying. But to go and pump water and irrigate a garden, I find her quite competent. I also liked the fact that it was smaller and therefore lighter than conventional devices, allowing anyone to move it easily and absolutely anywhere. It is true that it is quite noisy and that it is satisfied with a 2-stroke engine but when you are looking for a low price, you know that you have to be ready to make concessions. And on this model, those compromises are quite acceptable considering its usefulness and overall performance!
