Reliable operation with the DAB Divertron

The reliable and solid DAB Divertron has led the submersible pump market in New Zealand for the past five years before being technologically overtaken by the Dtron and Diver. However, it is still one of the most commonly used submersible pumps in the Rodney region, and we service it regularly.

The Divertron range from the Italian pump manufacturer DAB includes four submersible pump models that guarantee versatility in residential water pressure boosting. Perfect for rural residential building services like rainwater catchment and surface irrigation, the water pump is also ideal for wells, boreholes, ponds, cisterns, and rainwater storage tanks. But it is also suitable for other domestic applications where high water pressure is required.

The Divertron X 1200 M is a multi-stage submersible pressure pump with an integrated switching unit (flow switch) from DAB. When opened and closed by a user, the pump switches on and off automatically. If a water shortage should occur, the integrated switching unit triggers and protects the Divertron from dry running.

The water pressurisation system Divertron for clean water has either 3 (1000 models) or 4 (1200 models) impellers. This DAB multi-impeller pump has a built-in integrated electronic pressure and flow sensor. This automatically controls the pump's switching (ON/OFF) based on the user's water demand. Additionally, it prevents the pump from dry running in case of water shortage.

Clever features for clever water pump action: DAB Divertron

Furthermore, electronics protect the pump against defects at the non-return valve caused by dirt or sand deposits. Such build-ups stop the non-return valve from closing so that the pump continues to run even if there is not enough water. If the non-return valve is clogged, the pump goes into alarm. You can't restart until the clogging causes have been removed.

The ideal operating situation is when the pump is completely submerged. However, the efficient cooling system of the motor also allows the pump to operate partially submerged up to the minimum suction height (50 mm).

It has a housing made of high-quality, corrosion and oxidation resistant Technopolymer. The shaft, suction connection fittings, suction filters and motor housing are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. It is convenient, especially if dirt or debris has accumulated on the bottom of the tank.

The only difference between the DAB Divertron 1200x and the DAB Divertron 1200 is that you can install a floating intake. The floating intake is advantageous as the pump does not draw in the water from the bottom of the tank. It thus prevents the risk of contamination due to pollutants being sucked in.

Steve's Pros & Cons

Pros DAB Divertron Submersible Water Pump

We have always highly recommended the Divertron over the past five years if you are replacing an old pump or need a new submersible pump. When you buy and install this multi-impeller pump, you get exactly what is advertised – an honest and reliable DAB water pump for various applications around your home. We have used the Divertron for rainwater collection systems, for boreholes and for pressurising wells. All work great in New Zealand conditions.

The Divertron is so quiet that you almost don’t notice its operation. So don’t panic if you can’t hear the pump turn on and off, it usually works great and does its job silently. But please do not hesitate to call our service team if you have any doubts about your Dab pump. We will be happy to come on site and take a look at it.

Cons Divertron 1200

Using the Divertron for your residential water pressure boost is a great choice. However, we highly recommend a small expansion vessel for leakages and low water extraction. From our long term experience with DAB water pumps in NZ, our service technician will advise you on the best options for your individual needs.

Additionally, the Divertron is a bit sensitive to power fluctuation. This submersible water pump needs constant power. You might risk the motor blowing off if you have a doggy powerline. If power fluctuations are a problem for your home, there are various other options. Please do not hesitate to talk to one of our water pump experts to determine which domestic water pump works best for you.
