Materials Not Included: Through-hull fitting, clamps, mounting fasteners and cockpit spigot. Consider a seacock.
Performance Report: The 5.2 WD tested 28 percent above its pay grade, gushing 6.7 gpm at an average head of 30 inches. The modular snap-fittings and water strainer ease installation. Tailpieces are plenty long for double clamping, ensuring a no-leak fit and reliable operation.
Special Features: Specs indicate the pump is ignition-protected, meaning it’s safe to mount within the engine compartment or bilge.
Special Hardware Included: No hardware was included with our test pump.
Materials Not Included: Through-hull fitting, cockpit spigot, inlet and outlet fittings and sea strainer are not included. Consider a seacock.
Performance Report: The ProBlaster pumped 42 percent more water through an unrestricted nozzle at the test head of 30 inches, exceeding its advertised flow rate. We could not get an airtight seal between the intake hose and intake port, but it didn’t prevent the pump from blasting out the above water-flow specs.
