    570SS

    first thing I would do is to check the bypass cylinder and make sure it is working...startup machine and let it run for a little bit.....then look under the engine on the right-hand side just in front of the water box and start running the machine through the heat cycles....you should see the...

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    all I can tell you is that this problem is not an uncommon one and I have helped many many people with it..both 370's and 570's.....when the contact me the first thing I have them do is bleed out the box through the courtesy hose and all of them have a bunch of steam that comes out and the...

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    when ever I had this problem on my 570...I would take the hose and bleed off all the steam and it would shoot across the drive ways... and the needle will bounce and the water pressure would come back up and the unit worked fine until it started filling with steam again...everyone that has had...

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    correct..the box is getting hot and filling with steam...the pressure regulator does not know the difference between steam pressure and water pressure and thinks it is full of water and so it is not opening and allowing water in..a fast and easy way to check it is when it gives you that...

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    a friend of mine in Colorado was having the same problem...I sent him a link to buy one and he got it put it on and his problem went away..also Sapphire helped him and he now has 2 of them on his... I recommend he calls and talks to Rick at Sapphire..to be sure........

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    long time ago when they figured out the cap is not venting the way it should with a water box full of steam......it has been on my 570 for at least 2.5/3 years and it has been trouble free ever since.........

    yes...it is on my 570..........

    Loosing pressure on 370 ss

    The water box is probably filling with steam because it is getting to hot...the pressure regulator does not know the difference between steam pressure and water pressure so it thinks the box is full and is not opening to allow more water in...get ahold of Sapphire and see if they can get you a...

    Water Pressure and Heat Issues - Understanding Flow

    pretty sure I explained the difference between unloading with and without a check valve... and why...but when I get in I will see if I have the book mark about them.. regardless..with or with out the check valve..its always going to unload and always regulate....its all in the set up and if you...

    Water Pressure and Heat Issues - Understanding Flow

    there are 2 set ups for the regulator/unloader..pressure and flow...almost all machines are set up as flow...flow will automatically unload with out the check valve in it and pressure will need the check valve to divert the water to unload it..so machines are set up as flow..because 99% of the...

    Water Pressure and Heat Issues - Understanding Flow

    if he has the one like in the picture I put above it can be used for either one...but you have to remove the check valve for it to unload.....

    Water Pressure and Heat Issues - Understanding Flow

    did you pull the check valve out of the unloader.....most new ones still have them in there and that will cause you problems.....

    Cat pump

    Its strange how they would have that..if you look on every new machine that sits in a show room or one someone just bought..the cat pumps come full of oil to the center of the red dot...one would think by over filling it it would void a warranty....
