I wanted a strainer to use with a remote pump that would minimize residual water in the bilge. Therefore unless the pump has significant sucking power, there will still be some water left. On the other hand, perhaps I am asking too much, but I may yet modify the strainer to reduce the level of residual water. However, I really like the fact that the strainer comes with a built-in check valve, and the unit allows me to remove it from the bilge and clean it with less time and effort than a submersible bilge pump.
