The HydroSub consists of a diesel engine power pack that hydraulically drives the portable floating submersible pump.
The submersible pump pushes (no suction) the water through the large diameter flexible hose. The level of the water supply can be up to 60 meters below the power pack, depending on the model of HydroSub.
NO DRAFT PROBLEM ANYMORE The submersible pump is linked to the power pack by two 60 metre long hydraulic hoses, allowing access to any open water source at a 60 metre distance from the power pack either horizontally or vertically. Unlike a standard fire truck or fire draft pump that has to stand very close to the water and is limited by the draft issue as it uses suction to draw water.
Additionally the pump is capable of pumping salt water, chemically polluted water, mud, dirt, and can operate in shallow water with no risk of pump failure due to cavitation. It can also be used in conjunction with a mobile desalination plant and/or mobile water treatment plant.The fact that the pump is especially designed for long distance relays, with an extreme FLAT CURVE, contributes also strongly to the success of the system.
