Place your submersible pump, its power cord and outlet hose right in the bag, tie the top closed and you have a large surface area, long-life inlet strainer. Select a bag larger in diameter than your pump, with a mesh opening smaller than the pump’s inlet strainer but not so fine that the bag requires frequent cleaning.
The lightweight bags are ideal for pumps up to 15 gpm, fitting pumps up to 10” in diameter. Medium weight bag fits pumps up to 7” in diameter. The heavyweight bags handle up to 12” in diameter and flows to 60 gpm.
