Drafting Tip #21 - Strainer Screens - Check Them
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By President Mark Davis
September 8, 2022

Always take time to check your suction strainers before deploying them. The photos in this news story show a missing portion of screen that resulted in a nice collection of leaves at the pump's suction inlet screen. The strainer was being used in a rocky bottom stream in mid-October. Granted, had the suction strainer screen been intact the same blockage would have occurred....just at the suction strainer. That would have been easier to clear than the blockage occurring at the pump's suction inlet.
