Flow-Rite debuts Marine Bundle plumbing solutions

Flow-Rite Marine Bundle Plumbing Solutions

Sept 14, 2021

When installing boat plumbing systems, tracking down missing or incorrectly sized parts is frustrating and a waste of time. With the six new Marine Bundles from Flow-Rite, OEMs, service techs and DIY boat owners get it right the first time. Built around the innovative Qwik-Lok™ connector, they include everything needed to install standpipe drains, bilge pumps and Flow-Rite’s PowerStream Pump-Out Aerator Combo system. They debut at IBEX, September 28-30, Tampa, Florida, booth 3-631.

The 1-1/8″ Standpipe Drain Bundle is engineered to make plumbing a livewell a breeze. It includes a 12″ standpipe, 6′ of premium hose, a 1-1/8″ thru-hull elbow, a straight thru-hull and two Qwik-Lok fittings.

Flow-Rite’s innovative PowerStream Pump-Out Aerator Combo replaces traditional recirculation pump out systems. By pulling its red aerator head, water diverts from the livewell to the included pump-out thru-hull. This allows for exceptionally fast well draining, either at day’s end or when water needs refreshing. All parts and fittings are provided, including 8′ of hose and four Qwik-Lok connectors.

The Bilge Bundles are available in 3/4″ and 1-1/8″ versions, with or without a 1,000 gph pump. The comprehensive system takes the guesswork out of water removal while delivering worry-free operation. All required components are provided, including two Qwik-Loks.

Unlike traditional marine plumbing connection methods, Qwik-Lok male and female ends are fitted prior to installation. This allows the hose to be attached without tools; they simply slide together. Waterproofness is ensured with O-rings, latching arms and a locking ring. The entire process can be accomplished one-handed. Flow-Rite Marine Bundles range in price from $33.99 to $96.99 USD.

Since 1981, Flow-Rite has manufactured a wide range of injection-molded fluid control components, including single-point battery watering systems. Its marine line includes livewell, baitwell and ballast solutions with unique Qwik-Lok™ connectors, as well as the innovative Remote Drain Plug. Its products are made in the USA in an ISO 9001:2015-compliant facility using green manufacturing processes and materials.
