Shurflo Pumps

Shurflo USA have a variety of automatic deck washdown kits available – from the standard “Blaster” through to the premium “Pro-Blaster 5.0”.

The standard blaster series should NOT be exposed to external splashed water. The higher end models will withstand a small amount of spray and splashed water – however these pumps are NOT waterproof and warranty is void if the motor is waterlogged. With any series of deck wash pumps, the pumps life will be extended if mounted in a dry area.

Only Shurflo hose connection fittings should be used as they are threaded especially for Shurflo pumps. Always use an inlet strainer to avoid pump damage due to debris – inlet strainers are supplied with Shurflo deckwash pumps.
