Pump Defender Prefilter helps to extend the lifetime on your submersible pump by filtering debris that may enter your pump and putting strain on it. Just put your pump inside this, tighten the opening and place in the water. It's okay if it protrudes a bit. Ensure to have the pump inlet inside the filter.

The pump sits inside a thick meshwork and then wrapped in a nylon bag with drawstring. Heavy debris is filtered out before it reaches the intake of the pump, thereby reducing maintenance and extending the life of the pump.

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the 1920s and 1930s, William Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
