The Shurflo 2088 are positive displacement diaphragm pumps. They make excellent household pressure pumps if you need to pump up to 3.6 gallons per minute. These pumps are designed for continuous duty operation with addition of the optional heat sink. Use the optional heatsink for heavy duty applications where extra cooling is required. They can be run dry without harm.
The Shurflo 2088 has a built-in pressure switch and half inch male pipe thread ports for easy connection to common plumbing fittings. Home pressurization installation requires a precharged water tank. For general water pumping, this pump can self prime to 10 feet and lift water up 100 feet. For added reliability the Twist-on Strainer can be used on the 2088 inlet port.
