Product Overview

The SBA 3-45 A and SBA 3-45 AW are new and improved and have new part numbers. You can find the new and improved SBA pumps here.
The SBA is a complete all-in-one submersible booster pump for pumping clean water, it is especially suitable for rainwater application and small private wells. The SBA comes with an integrated control unit, eliminating the need for an external pump controller. With SBA it is literally a matter of "plug and pump". Once installed and connected to the piping; all you need to do is switch on the pump. The result is a reliable solution and greatly reduced installation costs. The pump is available in two main versions:
Model SBA-3-45 A Grundfos Material #97896333. SBA-3-45 A comes with integrated bottom suction strainer. 
Model SBA-3-45 AW Grundfos Material #97896335. SBA-3-45 AW comes with side inlet/flexible suction hose with floating suction strainer.
Both Pumps include a Float Switch that causes the pump to turn on or off based on the position of the float.
With integrated suction strainer (1 mm mesh) Or with side inlet/flexible suction hose with floating suction strainer (1 mm mesh). Both variants are available with or without float switch, the float switch offers stop at low water level ensuring that surface fragments do not enter the strainer.

Although not required, a small, 2 - 4 gallon pressure tank is recommended to prevent cycling when a leak is present in the piping, extending the life of the pump. It also prevents the pump from starting/stopping when very little water is used, if a tap is only opened for a couple of seconds, for example.
