$343.99 $311.99 Sale


The Johnson Talulah High Flow Reversible Ballast Pump is hands-down the fastest reversible pump on the market with an impressive speed of 250 pounds per minute!

Johnson Pumps has always been a leader in the marine pump industry but the new Talulah High Flow Ballast Pump takes ballast filling and draining to a whole new level.

Johnson Talulah High Flow Ballast Pump Features

  • Run-Dry Protection: The integrated Run-Dry Protection circuit monitors the temperature of the pump motor, and automatically shuts it off if conditions indicate water is no longer flowing through the pump for more than 30 seconds. This innovative feature helps prevent damage to the expensive motor unit of the pump if it overheats due to running dry.
  • The ignition protected design makes this pump suitable for installation in the bilge compartment of the boat without risk of fire or explosion due to fuel vapors. This feature alone is crucial for safe operation and is one important distinguishing factor between the Ballast Puppy and the Simer pump to which it is often compared.
