SLOTTED FILTER SUCTION HOSE ASSEMBLY: 1/2" AIR DIAPHRAGM PUMP
this is a non-collapsible suction hose for use with any 1/2" air diaphragm pump such as the afke05 or the yamada ndp-15fpt, or any pump in these related industries. the inlet of the pump must be 1/2" fpt.
12' long x 1/2" mpt crimped on a 1" inner diameter polywire hose w/ slotted pvc filter. installed with anelbow for top draw from tank and to allow user to fit the slotted filter end into the bung opening of a 55 gallon drum.
you must fabricate and provide the pvc sleeve to slip over hose to keep filter at bottom of tank out of 1 1/2" sch 40 pvc.
do not hard pipe plumb this filter into the tank. you must be able to remove the slotted filter to clean the debris and salts from the surfaces.
***rex, the pump guru, invented this slotted filter for use with sodium hypochlorite.***
the general rule of thumb when plumbing a pump is as follows:
double the hose inner diameter in comparison to the pump inlet and always use non-collapsible hose
for example, the delavan 5850-101e has a 1/2" fnpt (female national pipe thread) port on the suction side of the pump. we recommend that you choose a 1" id hose with a 1/2" crimped on hose barb.
