The Electric Pump is a machine added by Mekanism. It is used to pump fluids out of a reservoir in the world (such as a pool) or a storage (such as a Basic Fluid Tank) into a pipe system (see picture).



Electric Pump on the right above a infinite water source. In the Electrolytic Separator (middle) water is decomposed into hydrogen and oxygen.

The Electric Pump must be placed directly above the reservoir or on top of the storage tank, from which the fluid is to be extracted. The fluid is pumped upwards into a pipe connected to the top of the pump at a rate of 1,000 mB per second.

A Water reservoir with a minimum size of 2x2 blocks is not depleted. Any other fluid such as Lava is depleted.

Energy supply

The Electric Pump requires energy which can be supplied by a generator, energy storage or cable, placed on the side with the socket. In addition to the machines from Mekanism, the generators, energy storages and cables of all supported power systems (IndustrialCraft 2, Thermal Dynamics, BuildCraft and Tesla) can be used to supply it. If no external energy supply is available, power can be supplied by portable energy storage cells, like the Basic Energy Cube or RE-Battery, which can be inserted in the energy slot in the GUI.


Picture 2: GUI of the Electrical Pump.

Right-clicking on the machine opens its GUI (shown in picture 2).


The filling level indicator on the left shows the internal liquid storage. The Electrical Pump can store up to 10,000 mB.

Via the two slots on the right side, liquid can be extracted or inserted via portable liquid storage cells, like the Basic Fluid Tank, Empty Cell or Tank.

In the middle the internal liquid and energy storage is displayed.

The green slot and the vertical meter on the right side accepts charged portable power sources (such as a Basic Energy Cube or RE-Battery) and displays the current energy in the machine respectively. Portable sources are only needed if there is no external energy supply.


The lower-left button changes the displayed energy system between Energy Units, Redstone Flux, Minecraft Joules, and Tesla. The change only affects the display; the energy is still available in all forms inside the system.

The upper-right button opens the upgrade GUI. Upgrades can be added here, such as the Energy Upgrade to improve energy efficiency. Other possible upgrades are the Speed and Filter Upgrades.

The middle-right button opens the GUI to configure the access rights for the machine.

The lower-right button changes the machine behavior to Redstone.

  • "High" = operates only if a signal is received
  • "Low" = operates only if no signal is received
  • "Disabled" = operates independently from redstone signals
