Attwood Tsunami 1200 GPH Ballast Pump (Short 1" Intake)

That's all changed now that we're offering a version of this legendary pump with a standard 1" NPT threaded inlet. That means this pump can be threaded directly into your ball valve or other inlet hardware with no adapters and no special sealant for a leak-proof installation that is easy!
As with the standard version of the pump, the Attwood 1200 is a dependable, long lasting aerator style pump intended for use in automated ballast systems.
The internal cartridge is easily replaceable, and inexpensive, making this pump easy to repair and cheap to own, unlike expensive reversible pumps. The housing is made of rugged glass and mineral filled polymer to withstand the impacts that can result for repeated impacts with other boat's wakes and rough water and is resistant to the oil and fuel typically found in a boat's bilge compartment.
