New Little Giant® 16G Series 1 HP Grinder Pump Brings Versatility and Value to Market
Fort Wayne, IN – Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) announces the launch of the new Little Giant 16G Series, a heavy-duty 1 hp grinder pump designed to deliver serious power as a new or replacement pump for the most challenging residential and light commercial wastewater applications. This new pump is available in both 115V or 230V models and delivers trusted Little Giant performance and versatile features that set it apart from the competition.
While the 16G reintroduces Little Giant to the grinder pump market, it delivers the reliability, versatility, and high-quality construction that customers have come to trust from the brand. In testing, the pump has already demonstrated its performance is superior to others in its class. The cutting mechanism produces over 745,000 cuts per minute and is based on the patented design used in larger Franklin Electric models for proven performance. The forceful 1 hp class F motor provides optimal power to prevent flushables and other debris from clogging and causing downtime, while the discharge is customizable to a contractor’s needs. Installers can choose to use the 1-¼” discharge or utilize the 2″ adapter pre-assembled to the pump. This versatile option makes the 16G series the ideal drop-in replacement for any effluent or sewage pump struggling with clogs and binding, regardless of discharge size.
Built-to-last, the 16G features a silicon carbide mechanical seal that provides up to six times longer seal life with lower thermal expansion and higher abrasion resistance when compared to carbon-ceramic seals. Furthermore, the 20′ power cord is easily replaceable and is sealed at the connection point for unit protection against water.
Both 115V and 230V options are offered with vertical and tethered float switch options and are all backed by a three-year warranty.
