A major cause of pump failure is seaweed and other debris sucked into the pump inlet. In-Line Strainers effectively remove these items, prolonging the life of your pump and lengthening rebuilding schedules. In sanitation systems, the In-Line Strainer can also help eliminate unpleasant toilet odors by removing particles from the seawater. The In-Line Strainer bowl is made of durable clear plastic which enables the user to detect accumulation in the strainer filter. It can be mounted remotely for easy access.
