  • Easy to repair.
  • Submerged so no additional space required.
  • Efficient power consumption.
  • Works well where high head application is required.
  • No priming required.
  • Quiet operation.
Disadvantages
  • Can only work up-to a limited depth.
  • Limited to horizontal installation (vertical installation leads to shaft bending).
  • Can't process solid particles.
