The new PERKO Large Boat Strainer is designed for easy installation, cleaning and maintenance. Aircraft style mounting nuts hold fast without lock washers. They are held captive by the body and can't be dropped or lost. Once the mounting nuts are loosened, a convenient handle on the top covers allows it to be easily and removed providing quick access to the strainer basket. Four 316 stainless steel tie rods and strainer basket minimize electrolysis. The diameter of the screen holes is 0.079" providing 47% open area, among the highest in the industry for cylindrical strainer baskets. A drain plug in the bottom casting is provided for easy sediment removal or to drain when winterizing. A transparent cylinder provides a visual check for debris.
