Shallow drafting in sand & gravel with one length of hose - Shawnigan Lake, BC

Thornhill Fire Chief shares his experience using a BearsPaw Separator

“I shot a few short videos with the SEPARATOR in the sand and weeds with some vegetation going through the pump with no sand, then we connected the low level open strainer and ran that for only 10-20 seconds to protect our pump, there was lots of sand.

I didn’t need to sell the appliance to the membership. They were very impressed as we could never draft in the location before for obvious reasons, and we now don’t need to be worried where we draft from.”
