High volume low-level strainer is made of hard anodized and powder coated aluminum. Clog-resistant stainless steel filter has over twice as much flow area as a 6" hose. This keeps friction loss down to 0.5 psi (1Hg) at 1,500 gpm and reduces the potential for air vortexes to form as water sinks towards the 2.5" minimum usable depth. Oversized sealed ball pivot allows 45 degree range of hose angle without constricting the flow path. Optional Jet Siphon substantially increases suction lift capability. The Jet Siphon is also useful for tank shuttle operations, pump priming and dewatering without the need for a trash pump.
The optional flotation device allows the strainer to collect clean water from ponds, lakes and rivers. The strainer inlet, hangs 18" below water level to avoid sucking surface air and bottom debris. Capable of supporting up to 30 ft of hose, the strainer extends well beyond safety ledges of residential ponds. Rugged polyethylene float is yellow for high visibility and nests compactly over the strainer for minimal storage space. Float removal is not necessary for low level use, although a tethered latching hinge pin allows the float to be removed or installed instantly if desired.
- 4.5" thread is available upon request.
- Floating attachment comes standard on all strainers, but is easily removed by end user if preferred.
