Manual Bilge Pumps by Plastimo
Two Plastimo Bilge Pumps
Plastimo model 39539(on photo above) has 1” inlet and outlet fittings and is capable of moving about 10 gallons of water a minute at 45 strokes. It typically sells for about $85, which is extremely competitive in this market. For larger boats, model 39541 uses the same pump body but is equipped with a 1-1/2 inch inlet and outlet, allowing it to move nearly 12 gallons of water per minute at 45 strokes.
Both of the Plastimo Bilge Pumps, models weigh in as featherweights at just over 2 pounds and measure about 13 inches high (including the top of the handle, 0.9L capacity), slightly less than 7 inches wide and protrude into the cockpit only 1-3/4 inches. Both models are removes easily for maintenance.
The cutout for both pump bodies is a 5-1/2 inch circle and the back of the pump, including the hose elbows, protrude into the inside of the vessel about 13 inches from the outside surface.
Since the installation cutout is round, the proper hole can be cut with a hole saw instead of shaping a special pattern. The Company Plastimo made their new manual pump inlets and outlets in the form of elbows that swivel through 360 degrees and no matter where the plumbing leads from the back of the unit, it is possible to get a fair lead without kinking the hoses.
The whole pump installs ease from the front, meaning that crawling inside cockpit lockers or having double-jointed elbows are things of the past.
The Plastimo Manual Pumps
The Plastimo marine engineering is quite impressive. Of course, the pumps are made of UV and shock resistant materials that will withstand salt water and the rigors of the marine environment.
As a general boating rule, manual diaphragm pumps are among the most reliable things on the boat. They occasionally need a new diaphragm or flapper valve , but even those jobs only take a few moments on most models.
Plastimo offers modern design about the bilge pumps is the fact that the handle is actually a part of the pump cover. In the past models , many boaters spend a few hours installing a flush cockpit pump and another several hours figuring out where to stow the handle of pump and finding clips to fit it. In fact these pumps have been designed in cooperation with boatowners, pumps aren’t outstanding because the thought or technology is novel it is the engineering and execution. With the Plastimo Manual pumps, the handle is always in place on the pump ready for instant action.
Plastimo’s manual pumps for installation at the helm probably won’t catch a lot of mice but they fill all the requisites of a great product for your boat. The pumps have a neat, trim appearance and unlike other boat pumps, there is nothing to snag at pants cuffs or render flesh.
Manual Bilge Pumps value: One of their value is that the helmsman can operate the pump without leaving his post. Another Part of Manual Pumps value is that they will operate even if the whole electrical system goes down.
