Sodium hypochlorite, commonly called chlorine, remains a popular chemical for sanitation, water treatment and swimming pools.

Improving Longevity of Ezi-action® Drumpumps

The constituent sodium hypochlorite is a particularly harsh chemical.

The longevity of the Ezi-action® Drumpumps when used to dispense sodium hypochlorite can be improved by removing the pump from the drum between usage and rinsing with water.

Reducing exposure to UV light can also be advantageous to improving longevity.


  • Follow the instructions for Removal and Cleaning of the Ezi-action® Drumpump.
  • The Ezi-action® Drumpump will have a quantity of chemical contained inside it when it is removed.
  • Should stress cracking occur due to use for dispensing sodium hypochlorite this is not covered by the 24 month manufacturer’s warranty on component parts.
