Koshin powered by Honda

Abrupt climate change on the Planet has led to terrible cataclysms in Europe in recent years. From recent fires in Greece to terrible floods including the largest flood in Europe in 2021 for  100 years. Twelve countries were exposed to the elements and hundreds of people died. Meanwhile, remediation of flooded areas can take years and is impossible without specialized pumps.


When it comes to moving muddy water with small rocks, the right equipment is critical. The Japanese KOSHIN-slurry pumps withHONDA engine are reliable and powerful and can efficiently move large volumes of water containing sand and solids, making them ideal for a variety of applications such as construction sites, flood control and wastewater treatment. In this article, we’ll look at the key features to consider when choosing a wastewater pump and go over the benefits of the 2-, 3- and 4-inch family of wastewater pumps. We will also discuss the importance of a removable inspection cover, oil warning and excellent vibration damping to facilitate maintenance, increase service life, reduce wear and optimize performance.

Understand the importance of choosing the right wastewater pump for the treatment of dirty water

Dirty water typically contains fine sediment, sand, gravel and other contaminants that can make pumping with a conventional clean water pump a challenge. Therefore, it is important to choose a dirty water pump that is specifically designed for pumping dirty water and has solid iron parts that ensure a long service life. For example, the high-tech design of the KOSHIN heavy-duty dirty water pump features the following unique components:

  • Impeller with 2 blades in chromed cast iron able to handle abrasive silts

volute casing

It is equipped with a powerful, reliable Honda stroke engine that allows them to pump solids of a certain size without clogging or damaging the pump.

When you choose a high-quality dirty water pump from a world-renowned manufacturer with a reputable Honda engine, you can be sure that it will pump dirty water effectively, ultimately saving you time and effort. It also allows you to empty the required space in a short time with maximum results.

The main features to consider when choosing a semi-waste pump

Firstly, the size of the pump is important. For most applications by private individuals and small companies, a 2 inch waste pump (50mm connections) is usually sufficient as it provides a balance between mobility and power. After all, hoses will have to be moved along with the pump, which are also of similar size and weight. For professional use by specialized services and construction companies, 3 and 4-inch waste pumps with suction and discharge connections of 80 mm and 100 mm respectively are usually chosen.

In addition, you should look for a refuse pump with a HONDA engine of GC series, which is known for its superior durability and low emissions. It is easy to start in all conditions with automatic decompression to reduce the pull force required. It is also easy to repair where even a small rural mechanic shop can repair it.

Another important factor to consider when choosing a refuse pump is the oil warning function, which helps to prevent damage to the motor by automatically shutting down the pump when the oil drops. This is an important option as the pump will typically run for long periods of time without an operator present.

In addition, a robust frame construction with heavy duty shock absorbers for vibration damping is essential to minimize vibration damage and ensure smooth operation to reduce the risk of premature wear.

For private use we recommend the KTH-50X 2-inch pump . It is ideal for private use as it has a compact size, which makes it easy to transport alone and move without special lifting equipment. At the same time, the 2 inch hose allows for enough pumping volume to handle most dirty water tasks while being fuel-efficient.


These pumps are manufactured with an abrasion-resistant cast iron volute casing and conical impeller, and feature specially designed vanes for greater flow capacity. In addition, the 2″ strainer pump provides a good balance between sufficiently high flow, speed and pressure, making it versatile for a wide range of applications.

Factors to consider when buying a wastewater pump for heavy duty operation

When buying a dirty water pump, there are several additional factors to consider. These pumps must handle the most demanding tasks, such as large solid particles, and provide excellent pumping performance.

● A removable inspection cover

First, make sure that the pump is equipped with a removable inspection cover. This allows quick and easy access to the impeller and other components for easy maintenance and cleaning. Due to the difficult and unpredictable operating conditions, the pump casing is often clogged with pieces of clay and gravel. Therefore, it is advisable to rinse the pump with clean water after each prolonged use. In practice, however, the pump is rarely granted this luxury. Therefore, a removable inspection cover on the front of the pump casing is a mandatory requirement for a flushing pump for pumping dirty water. It allows quick and easy access to the impeller, volute casing and other components for easy maintenance and cleaning. A removable inspection cover facilitates removal of accumulated debris or clogs to ensure optimum pump performance and cranking of a stuck impeller for easy starting of the motor with a hand starter. In addition, regular inspection and cleaning of the pump helps to extend its service life and avoid costly repairs. If you buy a cheap trash pump with an unknown brand name, make sure it has a removable lid for easy maintenance.


● Oil alarm warning system

Also pay attention to the oil warning system of the pump, which automatically shuts down the engine when the oil level is too low to protect it and other parts from damage.

● An anti-vibration system

Finally, pay attention to a required anti-vibration system in the trash pump, as it reduces vibration and noise and ensures that the pump remains stable when pumping liquids.


The pump should be supplied with a filter for the suction hose and sleeves with clamps for fixing the suction and supply hoses. Note that the suction hose should have a reinforced construction to ensure a vacuum at the pump inlet.

●    A trolley with wheels

Consider also adding a trolley with wheels, which enables a single person to move the pump from place to place.

We offer a complete range of reliable, professional dirt and semi-cleaning pumps with 2, 3 and 4 inch hoses for pumping heavily polluted water with sand, gravel and mud. In addition, all Spare parts available for 20 years after purchase, so you can use your pump for decades.

●   Tips for clearing debris quick and maintaining a dirty water rubbish pump

Maintaining and regularly making inspections of any honda high flow, trash flow pumps is essential for optimal performance and prevents engine damage. Here are some tips to help you keep your pump in great shape:

  1. Regularly check the suction and discharge connections of the pump for dirt or blockages. Clean them with a hose or brush.

  2. Check the impeller for signs of wear or damage. Replace it if necessary.

  3. Check the oil level regularly and top up oil if necessary. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the type and frequency of oil changes.

  4. Clean the removable inspection cover and the other components with water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

  5. To prevent corrosion causing damage, store the pump in a clean and dry place when not in use.

Alternative dirty water pump – consider using in a sludge pumps

If you need to drain a flooded area or remove mud and other debris from a construction site, a Koshin trash pump will get the job done quickly and easily.

However, it should be noted that centrifugal pumps are designed for water, but not for mud and silt. For these purposes diaphragm pumps are used, such as the Trash diaphragm pump 3″ (80 mm) LIBELLULA 1-3″ .

Diaphragm slurry pumps are another type of pump that is very efficient in pumping dirty water. These pumps are specially designed for pumping water with high concentrations of silt, sludge and other fine particles. With their robust diaphragms and powerful motors, slurry pumps can handle high flow through the pump with minimal clogging. This makes them ideal for applications such as dredging, mining and wastewater treatment. If you are dealing with low water quality that contains significant amounts of sludge, consider using a sludge pump to ensure optimal performance and avoid unnecessary downtime.
