The Fol-Da-Tank Float Dock Strainer - 4.5" NH Threads is a valuable piece of equipment that can save the day in many firefighting situations. Float Dock lets you use the water in farm ponds or streams, both shallow and deep, and with a Fol-Da-Tank. Because it operates below scum and debris and above sand and muck, it screens out the materials that wear out impellers, packing and bearings. Since Float Dock strainers are self-leveling, there are no whirlpools or suction loss. Each unit is fully guaranteed. (NFPA 1142 Compliant)Construction Features:
