Innovative Marine Pumps

SHURflo has been the marine industry's leading supplier of plumbing products for more than 20 years.

SHURflo has been the marine industry's leading supplier of plumbing products for more than 20 years. Through innovative product design, superior service and close customer relationships, SHURflo's solutions support the growth of the marine industry and ensure the satisfaction of boaters around the world.
A commitment to quality is at the heart of SHURflo's success. That dedication begins in state-of-the-art product-testing and quality-control labs at the company's Cypress, California, headquarters, where workers prevent defects before manufacturing begins, ensuring reliability. It continues with SHURflo's lean manufacturing process.

Thanks to continual process improvement and a team-oriented culture, SHURflo can respond quickly to resolve problems, control costs and deliver products to customers on time. Employees provide that responsiveness. Everyone in the company contributes skill and talent toward finding a solution to every challenge.

In serving the marine industry, SHURflo is dedicated to creating products that enhance the boating experience. Its Fluid Innovation Process (FIP), a framework for generating innovative technologies, has earned the company global recognition as a product-development leader. Central to FIP is engaging customers. SHURflo works closely with original equipment manufacturers, distributors, dealers and active boaters to determine their needs and desires. This attention to expectations is just one of the ways the company sets the standard in the industry for customer service.

SHURflo offers an extensive line of plumbing products, including washdown, freshwater, livewell, bilge, macerator, and general-purpose pumps; faucets; water-system filtration; and certified plumbing systems. Top brands include SHURflo's Extreme? Series Pumps, Aqua King? Freshwater Pumps, Blaster? and Pro Blaster? Washdown Pumps, Bait Sentry? Livewell Pumps, Piranha? Bilge and Livewell Pumps, Macerator Pumps, Yellowtail? Blowers, Marine Grade Faucets and the Waterguard? Filtration Line. Each exhibits the leading-edge characteristics boating enthusiasts have come to expect from SHURflo.

In particular, Extreme Smart Sensor illustrates the passion and commitment the engineering team used to push the envelope in developing this new technology. The microprocessor-control-based pump monitors the boat's water pressure and adjusts flow on demand. If a single fixture is in use, the pump will slow; if multiple fixtures are being used, it will speed up.

Reliability - also synonymous with SHURflo products - is demonstrated by the Bait Sentry line. Sport-fishing livewell pumps must be extremely rugged to cope with the harsh marine environment, and none perform better than those made by SHURflo. Designed to be troublefree, Bait Sentry pumps don't contain any mechanically connected parts. Their unique, magnetically driven impeller can ingest large amounts of debris without damaging the motor. If the impeller becomes locked, the motor magnet breaks free and the motor continues to run at a very low amp-draw.

Such innovations have set SHURflo apart since it was founded in 1968. Today, guided by its vision to be "First in Fluid Innovation," SHURflo is a preferred supplier to the marine market. As that vision drives the company into the future, SHURflo remains committed to delivering superior quality, innovative design and unsurpassed, responsive service.
