Pump Filter Bags
Submersible pump intake screens are typically quite small and can be blocked with just a little debris. In 1995, it dawned on us that we could put the pump into a filter bag, and we created the Pump Bag®. We now have five sizes.
Place your submersible pump, its power cord and outlet hose right in the bag, tie the top closed and you have a large-surface-area, long-life inlet strainer. Select a bag larger in diameter than your pump, with a mesh opening smaller than the pump's inlet strainer but not so fine that the bag requires frequent cleaning.
We have three types: lightweight, medium and heavyweight. The lightweight are fine mesh, ideal for pumps up to 15 gpm. They have a bottom stiffener ring and about 2 sq.ft. of surface area with a drawstring closure, fitting pumps up to 10" in diameter.
Our popular medium weight bag fits pumps up to 7" in diameter and has about 2 sq.ft. of surface area. The heavyweight bags handle up to 12" in diameter and offer about 6 sq.ft. of surface area.
The heavyweight bags use a stiff, semirigid, polyethylene mesh for flows to 60 gpm.
The medium and heavyweight bags use a tie-wrap closure. Made in USA.
Three colors available: PB1A, PB2A, PB38 are black; PFB101 is green; PFB102 is blue.
