Q & A

The traditional use of suction ‘strainers’ for ‘pump protection’ has resulted in millions and millions of dollars wasted for unnecessary pump repair and destruction. Typical comments we have heard are it’s simply a cost of operation or we have always done it this way”.

Good news, we now have an alternative to stop the damage to pumps from occurring… it’s called BearsPaw Separators.

Separators work while resting on sand and gravel as it instantly separates the solids from the water and allows clean water only to flow through to the pumps, hoses and fittings. This process eliminates excessive wear or serious damage to pumps, that normally results in down time with costly repairs or replacement.

The bottom line is that the level of pump protection offered by Separators is revolutionary. Especially when compared to the relative ineffectiveness of a ‘Strainer’, in the challenging conditions usually found in Shallow Natural Water Sources.

NO. Separators are designed to simply rest on the bottom of the water source in gravel & sand while flowing clean (safe) water to the pump.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee with 2-Year Warranty & Made in Canada gives you the confidence to try it without hesitation.

“Drydrant” is a word we coined to describe BearsPaw Separators. It is derived from “Dry Hydrant” which is a permanent and costly installed access to a static water source. However, the Drydrant is “Portable” and just as safe or even safer for your fire pumps.
