Attwood's Sahara Mk2 Bilge Pump is the only automatic bilge pump that eliminates air locks thanks to a patented X-Air impeller that ejects trapped air in the pump and pipework, preventing the pump from running dry and burning out.
Sahara Mk2 is one of the easiest automatic bilge pumps to install and service, owing to its external mounting feet and integrated outlet that reduces time and effort.
So what is Air-Lock?
Air-Lock (also known as vapor lock) is a restriction of, or complete stoppage of liquid flow cause dby vapor trapped in a high point of a liquid-filled pipe system.
2x better protection against water ingress and electrolysis vs the leading competition.
90 degree rotatable elbow outlet enables you to install the pump anywhere in a full 360 degree orientation.
Exterior mounting feet eliminate the need to remove the basket.
Improved motor cooling/heat dissipation prevents overheating that may cause failures such as a blown fuse or leaking.
No pipe or hose removal is required, reducing the time that it takes to replace the cartridge.
Patented X-Air Impeller that prevents air locking so that the pump will not run dry and burn out.
Single hand pump cartridge release is convenient when trying to access a pump located in a hard to reach area of the boats hull.
SteadySwitch buoyancy control reduces cycling - draining the bilge, not the battery.
Universal backwards compatible design that features a 7-pump mounting hole pattern for the replacement of any top bilge pump in its category.
