Advanced Pump is a block added by the GregTech 4 mod.

The Advanced Pump is essentially an upgrade to the regular Pump. The biggest advantage over the regular Pump is that it removes both source blocks and flowing liquid, making the pumping less laggy. It also covers a much larger distance and depth. Liquiducts or Fluid Pipes can be attached to its sides (but not its top) to extract the liquid. The Advanced Pump works especially well in the Nether.

The Advanced Pump (GregTech 4) requires Medium Voltage (128 EU/t) to work and will explode if supplied by any higher voltage (unless Transformer Upgrades and/or HV-Transformer Upgrades are used).

Note that Advanced Pump doesn't push fluids so if Liquiducts are used they require redstone signal. If Waterproof Pipes are used, they require to be connected to an engine.

In order to work, the Pump needs Mining Pipes in the uppermost right slot, a supply of EU, and a fluid transport system to send the liquid.

Mining Pipe can be retrieved by using an Miner placed over the existing pipe. Make sure the miner has an adjacent chest before powering the Miner as it will spit the pipe onto the ground. It's also good to note that the Miner is LV (32 EU/p) and not MV (128 EU/p) like the Pump.


  • The Pneumatic Generator Upgrade allows the Advanced Pump to accept MJ as power. Used with Energy Tesseracts, this reduces the amount of infrastructure around the Pump. However, at maximum output the Tesseract will only produce the equivalent of 100 EU (100 MJ max output converted to EU at a rate of 1 MJ/1 EU). Thus, two Tesseracts may be desirable to approach the 126 EU/t maximum of the Pump.
  • The Advanced Pump covers an area approximately 4-5 chunks2 and is limited in depth only by its supply of Mining Pipes.
  • Large oil geysers will require more than 64 Mining Pipes; pipes can be automatically resupplied through the top face, such as by an Electric Buffer.
  • When pumping Oil, the Advanced Pump will not continue to drain after the Oil source has been depleted (making it valuable in exploiting offshore oil).
