Quick Overview

Water Master Diesel Fire Fighting 1.5" Water Pump Electric Start, 1 Year Warranty

Product Description

Water Master Diesel Fire Fighting 1.5" Water Pump Electric Start, 1 Year Warranty. This 1.5″ Diesel Firefighting Pump is a rugged and versatile model. The high quality Yanmar diesel engine drives a powerful, heavy duty, single-impeller pump. The pump housing, fittings and impeller are all made from durable cast-aluminium. The impressive performance ensures it is a great choice for firefighting as well as other applications such as water transfer, wash down and irrigation. Diesel powered pumps offer greater efficiency, long life times and can be safer due to the lower volatility of the fuel compared to petrol pumps.

The great performance and high quality Australian manufacturing make the MYD15HPE an excellent choice for a diesel powered, firefighting pump.

Why electric start?

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Is there a way to know the PSI water pressure a water pump will deliver?

    Hi Ken, thanks for your question. Yes there is; approximately 1 metre of max head is equal to 1.42 PSI. So you can simply multiply the maximum head of the pump by 1.42 to give you the max psi rating of that pump. For example, if a pump has a maximum head of 40 metres, then its max pressure is approx. 57 PSI.

    For reference, a typical garden hose dispenses water at about 30-40PSI. Generally speaking, Transfer Pumps will have lower PSI capacity, but can move larger volumes of water, whereas High Pressure Fire Fighting Pumps will have a higher PSI but move lower water volumes on a litres per minute measure. 

    Hope that helps, thanks - Steve.

  • Q:Which type and size of pump is best for pumping water from a house tank up to holding tanks for gravity feed? I need to pump up the hill to a 15 metre head height over a distance of approximately 100 metres.

    Hi, it is difficult to advise exactly what pump you need without more information; e.g. what is the uplift from the tank to the pump, how much water you need to move, how quickly, whether the distance between the points is in a straight line, what size are your hoses etc. etc. 

    However, as a rule of thumb, the maximum head capacity of the pump can tell you what the pump can do in terms of; suction height + uplift. For example, if you needed to draw up water 5 metres from the water source to the pump, then move the water from the pump up a gradient of 15 metres, then you would need a pump with a maximum head greater than 20 meters (5 +15).

    Also remember that there will be a small loss of head capacity through general friction, so your first consideration is a pump with head capacity greater than 20 metres, then secondly what flow rate (litres/min) you require - this is where the pump charts come in handy (on the product brochures) as the water flow rate diminishes with the height. 

    Depending on your suction height, I would be inclined to look at a Honda or Subaru powered 2" or 3" Transfer Pump that has a head capacity of around 30-35 metres and flow rate of around 500-600 litres per minute. If your suction height or flow rate requirement is larger, then you'll need to look at a larger pump.   

  • Q:Based on my understanding of ‘Maximum Head’, would I be right in saying that a pump with a Max Head of say 20m, could transfer water 18m directly vertical, if the suction inlet was 2m above the water source?

    Yes. That is the correct interpretation of the Max Head capacity of a pump. Note in your theoretical example though, the water pressure and flow rate would be around zero at the discharge point (because the max head of the pump is 20 metres and the sum requirement of your example is also 20 metres). In practice, if you're pumping requirement totaled 20 metres, you would want to get a pump with a max head capacity of greater than 20 metres, to have sufficient water flow and account for small head loss from friction. 

  • Q:I see the Firefighting pump models often have two (or more) outlets, which are slightly different in size.  Which outlet does the pump specifications (e.g. Max Head and Water Flow Rate) refer to?   

    Good Question. For Fire Fighting Pumps, the smaller outlets are designed for pressure and the larger outlet is designed for water transfer. When looking at the pump specs, the Maximum Head capacity relates to the smaller outlets and for Water Flow rate, this relates to the larger transfer outlet.

  • Q:Do the pumps have varying settings to control water flow, or do they run at one speed?

    The engines that run the pumps have an engine throttle, which controls the engine speed and therefore in turn the pace at which the water is being pumped. But there is not a direct pump speed control.

    The exception to this within our range of pumps is the Honda 6” Water Master Transfer Pump model (MH60E), which comes with an automatic throttle.

  • Q:When talking about the size of the pump, does that refer to the diameter of the inlet or the outlet?

    In our range of pumps, the inlet and outlet size of the pump is the same, with the exception of the Fire Fighting pump models. These high pressure Fire Fighting pump models will have one inlet and one transfer outlet the same size which classifies the size of the pump...then most Fire Fighting Pump models will also have two additional outlets which are slightly smaller and are designed for the high pressure discharge.

  • Q:Hi, With the Water Master pumps, what materials are the actual pumps made out of?

    Thanks very much for your inquiry. In regards to the water master pump range the fire fighting and water transfer pumps are both made of cast aluminium; the trash pumps are made of cast iron. The standard chemical pump is made of plastic, and the stainless steel model is made of stainless steel.

  • Q:Hi, I need to irrigate my garden approx 20m x 20m with a pump. I have a creek for a water source about 20-30 metres from my garden. Which type of pump is best for me?

    Thanks for your question Craig. Most any water pump would handle your application. It largely depends on how you plan to "water" your garden which will help you decide the best type of pump. If you are simply watering with a garden hose and no nozzle, then this water pump would do the job. Please note that the pump should be as close to the water source as possible and you should use a good quality suction hose as well as a quality strainer to prevent any debris from getting into the pump.

    If you intend to use a nozzle or a sprinkler for your your watering, then it may be worth considering a high pressure fire fighting pump as these pumps provide a higher pressure that would be needed to provide effective coverage and proper operation of the nozzle or sprinkler heads.

    Cheers, Steve

  • Q:Hi, I’m looking for a pump to deliver water from a creek to a garden area about 400 meters apart; what do you recommend?

    Hi, our portable pump range (transfer pumps, fire fighting pumps, trash pumps, submersible pumps, chemical pumps) have models that will effectively handle pumping vertical distances from about 20 metres up to about a maximum of around 90 metres - this is the Maximum Head capacity rated on every pump's specifications. 

    The Maximum Head rating will tell you the maximum height the pump can pump to. So you need to know how much height you will need to draw from the water source up to the pump (suction height) and how much height you will be moving the water (uplift). For example, if you needed to draw up water 5 metres from the water source to the pump, then move the water from the pump up a gradient of 25 metres, then you would need a pump with a maximum head greater than 30 meters (5 + 25). Also note that as water moves through the hosing and the bends it will encounter friction, causing some small additional head loss - so you should need to choose a pump with maximum head larger than your height pumping requirements. Then you'll need to consider what flow rate you want to move the water at...this is where Pump Charts are important to consider (see product brochure) because delivery capacity falls away as max head capacity is approached.

    Overall, work out your suction height + uplift, then choose a pump with max head capacity to more than handle the sum of those heights, and a pump that satisfies your flow rate requirements. 

  • Q:Do the Water Master Pumps have screw-in (thread) fittings or camlock fittings?

    All the Water Master range are screw fittings (standard BSP Thread).  You can get an additional separate fitting which allows camlock coupling connection.
