A really practical and valuable new product is the Aqua King II water pump from Shurflo and we met manager Wendy Inskeep at IBEX. She explained the value and importance of this great new water pump.

This technology creates a vacuum internally, so no remote vacuum pump or tank is required. It also eliminates the need for foot pedals and other mechanical components that can fail.

Fresh water freezes in winter so what do you do when you need water all winter? Recognizing this need, Paulin & Co. developed just the product, an electrically heated garden hose.

It can be set to operate automatically and turn on at 45 degrees F (7 degrees C) and off at 57 degrees F (14 degrees C) or higher.

Holding tanks are the obvious first-level fix but, of course, these need a pump-out station and there are not many of those on this coast.
Raritan has another option for vessels up to 65’ in length.
