"Reinforcing our commitment to R&D and 'making your boat a better place to be', Jabsco's new product program for this coming season is one of our most comprehensive for years. It covers practically every area of our range from Searchlights and Water Pressure Pumps, to Air Blowers, Oil Changers and Bilge Pumps."
Heading the list of innovations is the Hydro Air Bilge Switch, a revolutionary solution for monitoring bilge water, which uses air pressure to activate bilge pumps automatically, instead of floats or electrical sensors. There are no moving parts in the water to jam or get contaminated, in fact nothing electrical need be submerged.
PAR-Max automatic, fresh and salt-water pressure pumps have long had a reputation for performance and reliability. The range has now been expanded with the new PAR-Max 1, 2, and 2.5, at the lower capacity end, bringing greater convenience for the smaller boat.
For larger craft and charter vessels, Jabsco has produced a new 50 litre per minute fresh water pressure set. This self-contained unit comprises a silent running centrifugal pump and drinking water quality accumulator tank. It is capable of simultaneously providing hot or cold water to eleven outlets, such as taps, showers, deck wash outlets and toilets.
Jabsco has added two new compact, in-line Air Blowers to our range. Compared with others on the market, these 75mm ( 3" ) and 100mm ( 4" ) units, generate greater airflow, with a quieter operation and lower amp draw.
The new Jabsco Oil Changer Set is a powerful 12v or 24v reversible pump coupled to a five way manifold, all enclosed in a protective cover. The set includes three valves, but a further two can be added, to service for example, two engines, two gearboxes and a generator simultaneously.
Finally, adding to our existing range of Searchlights, Jabsco has launched a completely new 150mm ( 6" ) Remote Control version that combines the latest bulb and switch technology, with traditional chrome styling. Available as 12v or 24v, in two bulb options, the design offers automatic SOS Signalling and Sweep Search facilities.
All these products will be available during the first half of 2001
