Floto-Pump by Waterous For Home Fire Fighting


The FlotoPump has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It is no longer available.

Floto-Pump Fire Pump

The Waterous Floto-Pump has a dry weight of 42 pounds, is self priming, and operates in as little as six inches of water. Durable, powerful, and easy to maintain, it is the clear choice for a quick response to fires in inaccessible areas. It is also an excellent swimming pool fire pump for high risk and high value residential properties. Developed to meet the rugged demands of the United States Forest Service, the Floto-Pump is easily carried by one person.

It is available in two models -- Standard and High Pressure (Forest Service). The Standard Floto produces maximum pressures of 105 psi (240' lift) while the High Pressure Floto throws a stream of water over 85 feet (26 m) at 170 psi (392' lift). Although developed for the fire service, the Floto-Pump is also used for marine service, dewatering, pool maintenance, environmental clean-up and irrigation.

Operational Notes:

  • For property located considerably above water supply level or to protect tall trees or high structures -- the Floto−Pump™ High Pressure is capable of delivering water to those higher points.
  • The Floto−Pump™ uses an 8 hp two cycle engine. In comparison with smaller pumps that we offer, it does require greater effort to start -- may be a challenge for some individuals.
  • Pump floats on water's surface.
  • Requires relatively calm water. Wave action can cause operational difficulties.
  • The Floto−Pump™ does not require a suction hose or foot valve.
  • The pump self primes within a few seconds.
  • The standard model is most frequently used for water transfer, while the high pressure (forestry) model is the fire fighting choice.
