Thu Jun 22, 2017

149814411886728.jpgElkhart, Indiana - Lippert Components, Inc. has announced that it has entered into an agreement to be the official distributor of the Flow Max fresh water pump manufactured by Duraself.

Flow Max water pumps will be available for sale this summer with plans to launch a full aftermarket program to all LCI Distribution accounts at all upcoming industry events and conferences.

“The functionality of the Flow Max is what sets it apart from the competition," LCI Vice President of Sales Andy Murray says. "This is a solid product with proven features that we’re very excited to offer to our aftermarket and OEM partners.”

The Flow Max features impressive water pressure performance, boasting an average flow rate of 3.2 gallons per minute, a full 35 percent higher flow than other competitors’ average GPM. With higher than average pressure and flow rates, the Flow Max is ideal for larger RVs with extended plumbing systems. The pump’s heavy-duty motor is corrosion-resistant and built to resist damage if the pump runs dry. Flow Max also features a quiet, disturbance-free operation and is well-suited for use in RVs and boats as well as for residential housing purposes.

"We’re excited about the Flow Max water pump and plan to launch an assortment of new products in the fresh water category," LCI Managing Director of Aftermarket Sales Stephan Lussier says. "Stay tuned."
