Get sq ft pricing out of your head for now.
Accurate sq ft pricing is only possible once one has already established their avg production rates per hour are, and have established not a sq ft price, but a sq ft price "range" for production rates/hour under different conditions.
You have not...
I'm going to pimp my fresh tank filter.
That fixed acorn filter just isn't cutting it.
Ordered an in-line filter with dual male 1/2" hose barbs.
Going to mount it between two lengths of 1/2" hose and make it long enough to pull out and clean, and also to be able to remove more left over...
The rubber 90 degree elbow should be facing downwards.
Make sure the starter cuff at the machine is secure and does not spin when you tighten the hose cuff on.
Over-tightening the cuffs can break the adhesive and loosen up the fitting causing the whole fitting to spin and change the position...
Your on the right track, but the best advice I can give you is to not get too far ahead of yourself.
Setting up and operating an ETM on a daily basis is a very different animal than what you are likely used to.
Cold water, water hookups, longer hose runs, APO reliance, APO to where??, reliance...
As stated, the issue is the potential for foaming, so vacuum tanks from any other industry are not really relevant comparisons.
Look at the action inside round canister vacuums.....round and round it goes.
Put some soapy liquid inside and see what happens.
I pulled the sides of the pump head off last night...........
Pretty simple.....take the outer nut off and everything slides right off the shaft.
Oh my....what do we have there?
Nice big chunk of silicone sealant must have gotten sucked in somehow and blocked the valve ports...
Yea I saw that in the manual.
I am going to call Cat.
Only listed prices I have found so far............
What makes you think you know me?
Always assuming that it is always about money, and everyone is cheap.
Do you believe there is a relationship between everyone being cheap and the sales of your units, enough to where you appear to always obsess over it?
I could have a dozen new Cat pumps here...
The issue is that an APO pump is not operating only against the forces of a free flowing, gravity fed, open system water tank, but a tank under serious vacuum pressure.
This is the curveball.
What would be the benefits of buying a new head as opposed to a rebuild?
I would rather have a better understanding of how the pump works.
We are not talking Pumptecs here.
I know my way around a Pumptec, as they have been a standard for as long as I have been in business, and have rebuilt a...
Since your existing machine is already running 6.6" motors, an upgrade to LX motors should be a very simple swap.
Yes, the LX motors will give you better performance.
There should not be any booster issues either.
You will have all the suck you need.
But..............That Powerflite unit is...
