ElectroSea SeaStrong Pump
ElectroSea’s new SeaStrong heavy-duty pump uses a seal-less magnetically coupled drive. Powered by a stainless-steel IP55-rated washdown motor, the pump head is built with glass-fiber reinforced polypropylene, so it will not corrode or tarnish. The pumps are designed as drop-in replacements for most existing seawater pumps for systems such as air conditioners, freezers, ice makers and gyrostabilizers. Starting at $2,287; electrosea.com
