Fol-Da-Tank Floating Dock Strainer

SKU: W-FDS//Ships from Manufacturer


Pump pond water free of debris with Float Dock® floating strainer

FOL-DA-TANK® Company manufactured the first floating strainer in 1954 and started selling them in 1955. 
The Float-Dock® proved to be the most practical answer not only for firefighting but also for construction and mining operations.

The Float Dock® strainer is a valuable piece of equipment that can save the day in many firefighting situations. Float Dock® lets you use the water in farm ponds or streams, both shallow and deep, and with a Fol-Da-Tank.  Because it operates below scum and debris and above sand and muck, it screens out the materials that wear out impellers, packing and bearings. Since Float Dock® strainers are self-leveling, there are no whirlpools or suction loss.  Each unit is fully guaranteed.  (NFPA 1142 Compliant)

Construction Features:

  • Professionally designed & engineered for maximum pumping capacity
  • Polyethelene molded float with molded in carry handle (handle can be used for tie off and retrevel)

"What flows can I get from a FDS6.0?"

Hey Fireball Paul, Fol-Da-Tank does not have a flow rating for their floating dock strainer, they do say that it has a 20/30% more open area, and that it means NFPA Standard 1142, best i could do for you.
