Multiquip PX400 electric stainless steel submersible trash pump
2", 72 GPM, 1/2 HP, 115V, Contractor grade submersible trash pump.
High strength plastic and stainless steel design uses 316 stainless steel to resist corrosion and an abrasion resistant plastic for the non stainless parts (parts of the casing and the impeller).
Equipped with a 2" discharge port that can easily handle solids up to 1 inch in diameter. A vortex action discharges solids away from the multi-vane impeller.
The base of the pump can be quickly removed for service,
The pump has a built-in thermal overload protection that shuts down the pump when the operating temperature becomes too high and automatically restarts it once the temperature returns to an acceptable level.

Since this pump is driven by an electric motor there are no concerns regarding fuel or engine oil. All wear parts are constructed of abrasion resistant materials to reduce costly downtime for repairs.
The mechanical seal operates within an oil filled chamber that provides positive lubrication. This helps prevent damage in the event the pumps is run dry for short periods of time.
