The Xylem Evacuator Series offers high efficiency portable utility pumps. Designed as an alternative to gas or diesel powered portable pumps, the Evacuator Series excels in  environments requiring fast, efficient removal of large concentrations of standing or flooding water. Providing a robust 2000 GPH, a capable 4000 GPH, or a sizeable 8000 GPH, the Evacuator series provides a perfect collaboration between size and functionality.

In times when power is scarce and water is high, the Evacuator series is just the pump to remove or relocate unwanted water. An innovative power connection allows for direct operation from your vehicle's 12 volt battery, via two heavy duty battery clips.

The Evacuator 8000 presents many advantages over the current portable offerings
  • Impact resistant strainer protects against debris and jamming
  • Integrated on/off switch in supplied 25 ft cabling, providing operational convenience away from the power source
  • Harsh environment DC motor technology, proven in over 15 million operational units.
  • Direct operation from a 12 volt vehicle battery, providing flexibility in location and use.
  • Extended dry run time capability, preventing pump damage due to inconsistent water flow.
  • Thermal overload protection for each motor in the event of a debris jam.

The National Council for Healthy Housing recommendations:
  • Remove standing water and dry out the building as soon as you can. Open doors and windows. Mop up or pump out any standing water.
  • Use a mild detergent and water to clean and remove mold from hard surfaces.
  • Use fans and dehumidifiers to remove moisture after cleaning. Be careful not to blow mold around while drying—point fans to blow outside.
  • Throw away moldy things that can not be cleaned, such as carpets and carpet padding, upholstered furniture, drywall, wood molding, fiberglass or cellulose insulation, and ceiling tiles.
  • If there is more than 10 square feet (about 3 ft. X 3 ft.) of mold in your house, consider using a professional mold clean-up contractor. Do not hire a contractor who recommends fogging or spraying as a way to clean up mold. Moldy materials must be removed from the building.
  • Wipe dry or allow all surfaces to fully air-dry before doing any more work. Make sure that the home is allowed to completely dry before beginning restoration.
  • Additionally, to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, residents are reminded not to operate generators within buildings. In the case of power outages, generators should only be operated outside of an enclosed space.
