SOURCE: what kind of is used in a simer submersible

The Simer brand of submersible dewatering pumps rely on being fully submersed in water for proper cooling and for the seals to remain water tight and effective.

According to the manufacturer, there is no oil used in the pump, other than a very small amount that was used in assembling the pump at the factory, so you shouldn't oil the pump, but rather follow the recommendations as to making sure the pump is installed properly.

Here's the owners manual for your particular pump (Model #2300) so you can check the troubleshooting FAQ's and so you can also contact the manufacturer, should you need replacement parts or need to make a warranty claim, etc.

I have a Simer 2305 and the pump will run but does not when the water is low?


Pumps such as the Simer 2305 do not pump water totally down to ground level. They are designed so they do not suck up debris , sediment, etc, which can clog and ruin the pump. So if your pump leaves an inch or so of water, that is normal.

What is the clear oil called that needs to be put inside


10 weight non-detergent oil should be enough to get the proper oil. DO NOT fill the unit all the way to the cap - you need to leave ~20% available space at the top for thermal expansion and to avoid pressurizing the inside housing and blowing out the seal.

Submersible utility pump needs oil,what kind should I use in it.


What looks like 'oil' coming out of your pump is actually water! It has leaked and is fully contaminated. The seal for the pump must have leaked and it filled up. Take the 'big screw' back out and drain it and let it dry for a couple days. Then use some silicone as a gasket and put it back together. You may run again! It will probably fail sooner rather than later with a bad bearings from the water damage. That's what gave it the oily appearance.
