Quality Construction

Wetted parts are made of high-impact, non-corrosive thermoplastic; the shaft of stainless steel. Together with a liquid-cooled, 12-pole, double ball-bearing equipped motor, these features ensure safe operation and years of long service. 

The motor shaft is sealed off by a lip seal on the L1600. On the L4000 and L2200 there is a mechanical seal that eliminates shaft wear while providing service accessibility at the same time. The impeller design has been carefully tested and optimized to provide reliable flow and maximize head. Because the pumps snap into a universal mounting bracket/inlet screen, they can easily replace most similar bilge pumps.

Optional Ultima Switch

Ensure your pump turns on and off automatically and reliably, the detector cells in this unit are totally sealed meaning they are never in contact with the water, and therefore will not corrode or be affected by oil or foreign debris. No moving parts, totally sealed solid state electronics and field detectors, no mercury and no exposed sensors eliminate corrosion possibilities. Simple to wire with ultimate reliability in operation. ULTIMA switch is rated to handle pumps up to 20 amps at 12 or 24 volts.
