Suction strainers are fitted to the inlets of suction hose to prevent the ingress of solid material when drawing water from an unfiltered supply.
For use in shallow water the aluminium slipper strainer with stainless steel mesh is used. This is produced with a 3, 4 or 5 swivel female suction round thread connection to B.S. 336 1965. This type of strainer can only be used where the bottom of the reservoir is solid.
