The new C1 series of clean water pumps are designed for use in gray water.

| January 13, 2014

Fort Wayne, In. — Franklin Electric announces the release of the C1 Series stainless steel submersible cistern pumps designed for use in gray water/filtered effluent service applications, with the ability to pass solids up to 1/8" in diameter during normal operation without impacting the life of the pump. The C1 Series is constructed of a 304 stainless steel motor and outer shell with engineered polymer hydraulics providing superior corrosion resistance and abrasive handling.

Additional pump features:
• Robust thermoplastic discharge head to avoid breakage during installation and operation
• Removable 5 inch wide base for secure and reliable mounting
• Motor lead connection is protected with a rubber boot and secured with a stainless steel strain relief
• Unique bottom suction design allows for maximum fluid drawdown without compromising durability or overall pump life

The C1 Series is available in flow ratings of 10, 20, and 30 gpm, with a maximum shut-off pressure of over 100 psi and is available with a high quality 115 V or 230 V, ½ hp motor.

“We designed the C1 Series pumps to offer high performance and long life in less than ideal water conditions, such as pumping filtered effluent and pumping from rain catchment basins or aerating ponds,” says Kyle Lanier, Portfolio Manager, Submersible Pumps, at Franklin Electric. “But the pumps work equally well in pumping from clean water cisterns in agricultural, residential, and commercial installations.

The C1 Series is available for immediate sale in the US, Canada & Mexico. This pump is part of Franklin Electric’s submersible pumping solutions family of products.
