Mini Standard, Offset, Pickup Wand


There are 3 pickup styles available for the Series 1.
All pickup styles have filter pads underneath which prevent debris from transiting into the intake tubing.
The pickups are not prone to clogging. Please see our blog article on pickups for additional detail.

Pickup Type Description Dimensions Picture
Mini Standard Pickup Use this on a flat-bottomed compartment.
Typically placed near the aft bilge pump.
This is our most popular pickup style with a variety of applications.
Offset Pickup Use this in a V-shaped compartment (up to a 45° angle).
Typically placed in the bow of the vessel or aft under the engines where the bottom of the bilge is angled.
Small Pickup Wand Use this flexible tube in tight areas.
Typically used in A.C. drip pans, near limber holes, under a bilge pump leveling platform, or in other narrow deep pockets that collect fluid.
Popular in older boats, wooden boats, or custom boats.
