Electric pump 

Xylem Water Solutions, a manufacturer of portable electric pumps with U.S. operations in Beverly, Mass., and Irvine, Calif., has introduced the Evacuator 8000 pump. The pump is designed to excel in environments that require fast and efficient removal of large amounts of standing or flooding water. With an 8,000-gph flow rate and power connection allowing for direct operation from a vessel’s 12-volt battery, the pump is a solution for remote locations that require high-volume dewatering capabilities, according to the company. The pump allows extended dry run time, preventing pump damage due to inconsistent water flow and incorporates a thermal overload and internal circuit breaker to ensure motor protection in the event of a locked rotor. An impact-resistant strainer protects against debris and jamming, and the pump can be used in both fresh and salt water environments. For more information, contact Xylem at 978-281-0440.
