The Foot Valve Strainer is inserted into chemical tank at the end of the suction line. Foot check valves prevent siphoning and loss of prime in diaphragm style pump. Peristaltic style pumps do not require the check valve function of foot strainer, though filtering particulates out of the chemical is recommended. The rollers in the pump head of a peristaltic style pump act as a check valve when the pump is not running, eliminating the need of the foot check valve for these pumps.
- Available for 1/4″ tubing and 3/8″ tubing
- Can be ordered with or without the valve
- Installs on the pump suction line (in solution tank)
- Capacity of strainer is 300 micron.
