Jabsco Flexible Impeller Pumps Marine - Pedestal, Clutch

Flexible Impeller pumps are highly versatile with a robust and simple design.

Flexible impeller pumps deliver greater flow for weight, size and price than other types of pumps. 

They combine the priming feature of positive displacement type pumps with the general transfer ability of centrifugals. They will pump either thin or viscous liquids and can handle more solids in suspension than other types of rotary pumps. They operates at low or high speeds, can be mounted at any angle and pumps in either direction with equal efficiency.

Self-Priming: Pumps instantly with dry suction, lifts up to 10' (3m) — up to 25' (8m) when wet. No foot valve required.

Simplicity: One moving part — a tough, long-lived, wear-resistant flexible impeller, lubricated by the liquid being pumped. No metal-to-metal pumping action — no gears to jam, clog or become noisy.
