Waterco Hydrostar Plus composite plastic pump
Waterco has expanded its Hydrostar Plus series by producing a larger, commercial thermoplastic 12.5 hp model that can deliver 2500 litres of water/min. It has been engineered for aquatic facilities, water parks and large-scale commercial swimming pools.
Seamlessly constructed from an injection-moulded glass-reinforced thermoplastic, the pump is free of the welds, seems and tank linings that can corrode or electrolyse traditional custom-made strainers. It also has a transparent polycarbonate lid, enabling an unobstructed view of its 16 L strainer basket.
Equipped with a 6″ flanged inlet port and a 4″ flanged outlet port, the pumps in the range possess good mechanical and chemical resistance, enabling them to withstand damage from a range of harsh water treatment chemicals.
Unlike other commercial strainers that require tools or multiple bolts to remove the lid, the pumps’ lock rings require no tools. Ergonomically engineered, the lock rings only require a quarter turn to disengage and remove the lid.
The pumps have a UV-stabilised glass-filled polypropylene housing and a heavy-duty IP55 weather-proofed motor with 431 stainless steel shaft, plus an enclosed glass-filled Noryl impeller.
The commercial pump range is available in 7.5, 10.0 and 12.5 hp models. According to the company, the pumps weigh considerably less than their stainless steel counterparts, while still being strong and durable. Easy to ship and install, the pumps’ construction reportedly requires no maintenance nor repairs once operational.
