Turf Boss (1 – 2 HP)

The Turf Boss excels when used to supply water to a timer operated irrigation system, but the rugged, easily serviced pump can be used in other areas as well. Some of which are residential water transfer, commercial dewatering, rainwater drainage, light agricultural irrigation, sump drainage, and industrial liquid transfer. As a premium self-priming sprinkler pump, the Turf Boss is approved for indoor or outdoor operation through CSA and UL.

Whether it is a sprinkler system, a construction site, or a water transfer tank, when moving high volumes of water the Turf Boss guarantees the right amount of water right on time.
