The Dragon is the newest pump on the market, and great for bead filters.
The Dragon pumps are self-priming; capability of up to 4ft lift on the 1/3 hp and 2-1/2ft lift on the 1/4 hp, which is unbelievable for a low amperage pump.
The Dragon series pumps come with a built-in leaf trap that is a full twelve inches tall. This large leaf trap comes with an easy open cam-lock lid. This large leaf trap also reduces the amount of cleaning of the leaf trap.
