Got Big Water announces Otter as featured product

Got Big Water associates joined chief fire, Mahanoy City Fire Department, and Ryan township fire department for an otter demonstration to test flow rates and other metrics.

West Chester, PA. Nov. 21, 2017/News and Updates/ -- Chief Fire, an American manufacturer located in the Greater Philadelphia area tested and demonstrated the Otter pump at Locust Lake State Park in Barnesville, PA on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. Got Big Water Associates (GBW) were on hand to test various metrics and data points surrounding the Otter's capability.

With the help of the local fire departments, Chief Fire's Otter was put to the test in various situations, including the pump being placed in an open water source versus the pump being placed in a dump tank. GBW Associates utilized a HoseMonster flow diffuser with fixed-pitot to measure flow.

The Otter™ pump is the world's first ultra-lightweight fully composite submersible pump used for remote water sourcing and flood control operations. The Power Unit can be mounted on a standard pick up truck with a 6.5’ bed and a 2750lb payload. Using the latest advancements in composite body technology, the Otter™ (Patent pending) weighs in at only 85 lbs (38.5 kg), while still being able to produce flows up to 2000 GPM (7570 LPM). Being physically manageable by one or two firefighting personnel is a unique deployment advantage, greatly simplifying loading and general use.​

Mark Davis, President of Got Big Water said "We had the opportunity to try out a couple of scenarios and in all cases, the Otter proved quite impressive."
