Aerator Pumps and Strainers ( transom)

Post by FlowRiteAus » Wed May 16, 2012 1:53 pm

Hi All,

In regard to livewell aerator pumps a it is very important to make sure you use a "strainer" on the thru-hull ( skin fitting) before the pump to ensure particles and debris cannot enter your pump motor and cause problems. Bream are famous for "coughing up" shell and grit which causes blockages and or problems for aerator pump impellers.

Most strainers "screw" on but some can be of the push in type! ( screw on pictured)

At Flow-Rite we make both types to suit thru-hull fittings in 3/4" ( 19 mm ) and 1-1/8" ( 28 mm) fittings.


I would recommend to check the strainers and pumps at least once per month or after every fishing trip!

For more information please contact Flow-Rite.



Yours in fishing,

Lincoln Johnson.
