CLP Series Pump Stations

Compact, low-profile SHP VFD pump station

Rain Bird’s CLP Series pump station is designed for boost and flooded suction-lift applications. The CLP Series is a complete pump package that is simple to install and operate. It includes a professional-grade pump, a marine-grade aluminum enclosure, highest quality pump protection, and optional mounting for a Rain Bird controller. Home owner associations, small sports fields, schools, parks, and small agricultural projects are ideal applications. The CLP Series's compact design, durable centrifugal boost pump, and ease of installation make it a perfect solution for applications with flows up to 120 gpm with the Boost model, and up to 140 gpm with the Suction Lift model. With this complete solution there is no need to deal with the hassle of stick building a pump station with non-compatible parts and a makeshift enclosure. Only Rain Bird provides a totally integrated irrigation solution with UL-listed components and a one-year warranty that dependably deliver healthy, beautiful landscapes, saving time and minimizing maintenance.
