Strainer simplifies flushing


Perko introduced a versatile flushing strainer which is simply attached to the strainer’s hose inlet fitting. Multi-purpose, designed to simplify cleaning, maintenance and season-end winterizing tasks. Also can serve as an emergency bilge pump.

The flushing strainer is installed with mounting lugs cast into the sides for universal mounting. The strainer basket is 316 stainless steel to minimize electrolysis, and is easily removed for cleaning. A drain plug in the bottom casting accommodates removal of sediment or end-of-season draining.

A turn of the handle switches the unit between normal and flush mode. A low-torque ball valve ensures smooth action, while an internal cam seals the inlet not being used.

Available in 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″ or 1-1/4″ pipe sizes, the strainer is constructed of cast bronze and stabilized with four tie rods. Standard Perko replacement parts are available that include baskets, gaskets, cylinders, nuts and tie rods. Perko has manufactured high-quality, American-made products for over 100 years. Suggested retail prices of the Flushing Strainer start at approximately $400.
