Popular for boaties, these are a DC pump which combines both high flows of 19 L/min with excellent pressure (70 PSI) to deliver a good all round pump suitable for installation on boats, yachts, ships, RV's, caravans and may other applications where a wash down hose is needed. Available in 12V or 24V and as a pump only or in a complete kit.
Key to reliable operation in marine environments are good quality pumps which are sealed to the elements. These pumps have a seamless motor body and upgraded seals to ensure a long operating life. They are well suited to the marine environment and will also suit caravan and RV installations.
These are a 5 chamber diaphragm style of pump meaning they have good suction lift, can be run dry without damage, generate high flows and pressures whilst maintaining quiet and smooth operation. The 5 chambers means the discharge from these pumps is smooth and steady which means the pump is less likely to cycle compared to other diaphragm pumps.
These pumps have been upgraded and spec'd with high a quality Honeywell pressure switch which turns the pump off when the set pressure is reached. The pressure switch is critical for operations where the flow is required to turn on and off such as deck washes as the pump turns on with demand when the pressure drops and off when you release the hose gun trigger and the pressure increases. The pressure switch is easily adjusted by the operator if specific set pressures are required for whatever reason. Having a quality pressure switch integrated into your pump is key to long term performance.
Also supplied standard are upgraded diaphragms and Check valves made from Viton and Santorprene material. These improvements ensure the pump is extremely versatile and long lasting even if used with a range of fertilisers, herbicides or other often aggressive chemicals. Always check the liquids compatibility with the pump materials prior to use to ensure compatibility.
These pumps are offered on their own as a bare pump or in a kit which comes with hose, additional fittings, nozzle and suction filter. Whilst the pump is titled as a wash down deck wash unit it is suitable for a broad range of applications including farming, agriculture, solar farms, camping, motor homes, RV's, caravans, watercraft plus more.
