Pumps & Water 
Introduction

From the innovatively designed Compact bilge pumps, ruggedly constructed diaphragm pumps to the shower on deck RFD offers a solution to most on board water requirements.

Bilge Pump 925C & 1038C 
Bilge Pump 925C and 1038C

Compact with integrated handle

Features
Compact
  • The Plastimo pump is very compact and the 90° positon of the outlets allows installation where space is limioted or access difficult
  • Outlets swivel through 360° and therefore adapt perfectly to the pump position in relation to the strainer and thru-hull fitting
Optimum safety
  • No hassle looking for the handle at the critical moment: the Plastimo bilge pump is always ready-to-pump, thanks to its fully integrated handle
  • In case the diaphragm would leak, the water is rejected in the cockpit (not in the bilge), so you can't help noticing it immediately
Simple installation and maintenance
  • Installing the pump is extremely simple: all done from the cockpit
  • The diaphragm can be removed within seconds: no need to take down the whole pump. This facilitates the cleaning of the pump body (remove small stones and other possible objects clogged in the pump) and enables the replacement of the diaphragm if necessary
  • Construction from materials impervious to UV-rays, impact and weather resistant

Features

Diaphragm bilge pumps belong to the Plastimo "classic" products: for almost 40 years, they have been designed and produced in our Lorient-Francy factory. In cooperation with the largest boat builders, we have improved our pumps over the years so that they can always be perfectly adapted to new boats.

Corrosion, electrolysis and fuel resistant bilge pumps. Of rugged construction, they produce high capacity output with the convenience of many mounting positions.

  • Self-priming and leak free
  • Quick release inspection cover for added safety

The double action pump is equipped with outlet elbows, swivelling on 220°, thus allowing all mounting positions and reducing the clearance required (290 mm to 400 mm maximum)

Plastimo Tanks
Features

The Plastimo high resistance flexible water tanks are a reliable, practical and low cost solution to the storage of fresh water on board. They are flexible, light and form-fitting, and can therefore be installed where it would not be possible to install a rigid water tank, due to the shape of the boat or difficult access.

The double envelope principple makes maintenance easy, as the inner chamber can be easily removed from the outer envelope for routine cleaning and examination.

Features

Manufacturing flexible vents stems from Plastimo's 40-year experience in PVC dip-moulding; this process is also used for the manufacture of rigging screw covers, compass covers and binocular holders. The largest and most prestigious boat builders have made the right choice: they trust Plastimo for the constant quality supply of several flexible vents per year.

The most essential features of Plastimo vents are: material softness, resistance to UV-rays, easy mounting, smooth and shiny aspect.

Dorade Boxes 
Dorade Boxes
Features

Cool'n Dry dorade box

Perfect ventilation on board is indispensable to your comfort and contributes to the extended lifetime of your cabin equipment (cushions, cooker, lifejackets...) which are often damaged by humidity and mildew.

Hence an essential question: how can you ensure a permanent ventilation while keeping your boat totally safe and absolutely free from any water intrusion?
The Cool'n Dry dorade box is the answer: its exclusive patented system provides constant ventilation inside the boat, even in very bad weather conditions.

  • Continuous ventilation : when sailing, on a mooring or wintering, the dorade box remains constantly open.
  • No water entry, thanks to the exclusive shut-off system, which closes automatically in the event of a heavy rain or very strong waive.
  • Manual closing by simple finger pressure
  • Rugged, weatherproof construction: soft PVC vent and ABS dorade box, both UV-treated.
Ventilator 
Ventilator

Ø 3" ventilator, can be used on its own to ventilate a locker, or in conjunction with the stiffening adaptor for connection to a hose.

Locker ventilation:
Drill a Ø 73 mm hole with a hole saw, apply sealant and push-in the ventilation grid.

When used in conjunction with a hose to ventilate an inside locker:
The ventilation grid is simply clipped on the stiffening adaptor (ref. 47514), requiring no glue no mechanical fixture. No screws required: neat aesthetics and time-saving assembly.
