One feature of the pump is its increased clearance between the float and discharge tube, as well as increased clearance between the float and outer casing. This improvement allows for more high solids and precipitate to be pumped without stalling the pump, extending usage between cleaning and maintenance breaks.

Other thoughtful design elements of the Autopump Ultra 4.5 include the proprietary non-stick finish on the float and a polished discharge tube, which helps to slow the buildup that can cause pumps to stall or fail. All metal parts are from 316 stainless steel, which is corrosion resistance and can better withstand attacks from harsh landfill leachate. In addition, the float ends on the pump are engineered plastics for easy cleaning. These plastics also cause less friction and wear on the discharge tube.

The Autopump Ultra 4.5 with a 4.5-inch diameter is larger than previous products, however it does not increase the total flow rate per minute, but does increase the volume pumped per stroke. This size allows the pump to achieve the same flow rates with fewer cycles, reducing wear to components inside the pump.
