Trash Pump Tip

Since trash pumps do not grind the material, the intake should be covered with a strainer to ensure debris that enters is limited to the capacity of the pumps. This will help minimize clogging in the discharge hose. Like all other self-priming trash pumps they are limited to 25FT suction lift. These pumps are high flow and relatively low pressure, not for irrigation.
