Kochek Company introduced a new, revolutionary, all-aluminum Bottom Guard Barrel Strainer that makes drafting possible in many conditions.

As it sinks to the bottom, Kochek said the bottom guard swivels to the underside of the barrel strainer, providing a clean stable platform from which to draft. The high intake ratio allows for pump capacity flow rates, while the guard protects against debris from being drawn off the bottom. The company said the device is ideal for use in silt, rocky and weeded conditions.

Kochek Bottom Guard Barrel Strainers are available with threaded, Storz, or camlock connections in a range of sizes. With a balanced handle and light-weight design, the Bottom Guard Strainer is easy to carry and to deploy quickly. The compact design makes for convenient storage.
