2.0 out of 5 stars Mains plug is dodgy, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline Submersible Water Pump 500W 12000Ltr/hr (Misc.)
I had many issues with this pump working when it wanted to work and I gave up on it last year. This year I had a good look at the mains connecter. It appears to be a transformer but its weight and the fact that the pump is stated as having a 220v requirement means its not. I took apart the "box" on the mains plug and it is actually a converter. It converts 2 pin Euro-plug to UK mains, 3 pin plug, minus an earth even though the pumps cable is 3 core and requires an earth. I chucked the box away, cut off the 2 pin Euro-plug and attached a UK mains plug with an earth. Works fine now plus I have the added benefit that if something goes wrong with the pump the mains power in the house's fuseboard will trip so no harm done. Has a good pump capacity but advise doing what I did not just for safety but to make sure it works correctly.
