LVM transfer pumps
The LVM range of pumps can pump fresh water, sea water and several are also suitable for other fluids, such as diesel. They are quiet and hard working, last a long time, and draw a very small amount of power for their performance.
About LVM Pumps
Light, efficient and very simple to install and use, LVM’s plastic-bodied dc centrifugal pumps are designed for use in small boats. The pumps will handle fresh or salt water, and some are suitable for diesel fuel transfer. Fitted with an integral plastic strainer, they are useful for pumping out narrow bilge spaces. The submersible models are slim enough to fit easily through a 38mm bunghole in a plastic water container. With the removal of the white strainer cap, a hose connector is exposed on the inlet, allowing instant conversion to an in-line freshwater pump able to supply a single tap.
These pumps are not self-priming.
Other uses include deck shower, deck/anchor wash, and bait tank aeration.
No LVM pump should be used for petrol, solvents, or any liquid with a flash point below 37C
