With other types of pumps, the water is pumped directly by the impeller, which is therefore worn much faster. A Hycon VORTEX pump works much differently. The impeller at top creates a revolving mass of water which forms a vortex. At the center is a cone of air. The water and it's solids are forced away from the impeller. Because there is very little contact between the water and the impeller, wear is greatly reduced as compared to other types of pumps. If it can flow to the pump then the pump can lift it out!
