Separators reject everything but water!

Fire Chief Testimonial about  

“Whether we’re in a lake or a 6-inch swamp, the separator gives us confidence that we can get water from any source and protect our pump from debris.”

Thomas Cameron - Fire Chief EPC LAFC

District of Hope Fire Department

“We are really happy with how well the separator works. Whether we’re in a lake or a 6-inch swamp, the separator gives us confidence that we can get water from any source and protect our pump from debris.

“It’s like having an insurance policy for our pump. We now have more water options across our fire protection area and it has been particularly helpful while assisting the Province with structure protection for over 30 days throughout this past summer. With water scarcity becoming more prevalent, this separator has been a valuable asset to our tool kit.”

SAFE Drafting in Shallow Waters & Debris - Day or Night

From another satisfied customer of an Authorized retailer:

This technology is impressive but why do I need it?

Provides your rural community firefighters with reliable drafting equipment when needed most.

  • Eliminates RI$K of pump damage by sand and gravel which for truck pumps could be $50,000 or portable hi-pressure pumps $4,000 in repairs plus downtime.
  • Flexibility of choice for drafting locations during emergencies – including shallow sources with weeds & debris – in less than 12″ / 30 cm of water.
  • Efficient – Just place & pump – No floatation, suspension or “babysitting”. Usually just one length of suction hose.
