Kochek’s innovative design is incorporating a unique guard that makes drafting possible in many conditions.

The “Bottom Guard Strainer” was designed to work with gravity. As the strainer moves toward the bottom of the water, the guard swivels to the underside of the barrel strainer providing a clean, stable platform from which to draft.


  • The high intake ratio allows for pump capacity flow rates while the bottom guard protects against debris from being drawn off the bottom, so silt, rocky and weeded conditions are not an issue.
  • The balanced handle and light-weight design makes it easy to carry and quickly deploy.
  • Compact in design, the “Bottom Guard Strainer” makes for easy, convenient storage.
  • BS602-BG (Big Water) is made from 8” tubing
  • Available with NST, Storz, or Camlock.
  • For other special threads or finishes, please call for pricing.

Strainer Specialists

We are Kochek specialists. We deal with various threads and finishes daily. Our goal is to help you order the correct strainer the first time. However, many strainers are made to order.
