Topic: Re: What is causing the strainer to choke?

As always, there are at least two possible problems. One is to determine if the pump in question can actually handle the material that is chocking the strainer. If so, move the strainer to the outlet side of the pump where the higher pressure may reduce the chocking problem.
The other possibility is to increase your strainer clean-out frequency.
