When a flood disaster strikes everything happens quickly so good preparation is key. If you live in a flood area then then it is wise to prepare and have a flood kit ready to go. Flood kits include a water pump, hose (with connectors) and a strong cage (to stop debris clogging the pump inlet) that also doubles as a storage box.
There are kit two options below from two major pump manufacturers; Lowara and Jung Pumpen (also known as PTS or Pentair).
Both sets include a pump, pipe, connectors and a plastic filter cage/storage box. Each kit has its own strengths. The Lowara Doc Kit can pump water up to 7m vertically and up to 8m³ of water per hour, it also has a max particle size of 10mm. The Jung Floodbox system is a bit more powerful and can pump just over 8m upwards and up to 11m³ of water per hour and a max particle size of 20mm (with cover removed).
