The Futurepump SE1 is a portable pump designed for irrigating approximately one acre of vegetable plots. It pumps around half a litre per second in full sunlight and can be used with 1 inch hosepipes, sprinkler, tanks or drip irrigation systems.

PLEASE NOTE :
THE OUTLET PIPE HAS A VERY TIGHT CONNECTION WITH THE PUMP, TO HELP WITH THIS WE RECOMMEND THAT THE PIPE IS HEATED FIRST USING ONE OF THE FOLLWING METHODS.
- Either hold the hose pipe in boiling water until it is somewhat soft, then place it on the connector.
- Or use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the hose pipe from all sides and place it on the connector.
- If nothing else is available a open fire or stove can also be used, but the changes of unequal heating and therefore leakages after placing the connector are bigger.
