The Automatic Check and Bleeder Valve is designed to retain water in fire hose lines when the pump is temporarily turned off, preventing loss of pump prime when used with centrifugal pumps in wildland firefighting activities. The pump can be restarted without the pressure of the head of water in the hose by bleeding through the bleeder valve.
