    Thermal wave ii vortec no pressure!

    Yea I'm a diy retrofit kinda guy, I'm not spending thousand on specialty items that can be had for half that price if you buy them for a different application but retrofit it a bit. I'll look into the rv ones. I'll do a little more research but for now I'll only be running a couple maybe three...

    Thermal wave ii vortec no pressure!

    Yep makes no sense, I called emailed the warehouse yhats listed on the valve and they told me it cost several thousands to turn there equipment on to make them, so they wouldn't sell only 1 lol. Luckily got a guy sending one to me.

    Thermal wave ii vortec no pressure!

    Tell me about it! Lo. Most the distributors I've talked to have directed back to the supplies i.e. legend brands and jon don, overpriced but I will def look into a water softer bc after getting it going the damn thing is full of rust and dirty water so that tells me I really need one!

    Figured it out must've been a pretty good clog in the system. I removed the hose that ran to to the regulator from the water pump and it pump water. I also had to bypass my water pressure sensors bc they're both bad. Now it runs and builds pressure no problem

    Can you attach a picture of that and maybe a diagram of what you mean? This was an option I was looking at but cant quite understand how I would plumb it?

    Its proprietary but I was looming at thermal relief valves that I may can make work. Its just a valve that opens at a certain temp. I'll get pics of my plumbing 2moro and a vid of it running. I basically have the water hose run right into the water pump and nothing running to the hose coming...

    2" I.D Marine hose

    It's vacuum hose from the machine to the waste tank. Never had to much problem with solution hose. You can try hydraulic line it's rated a lot higher pressure and resistance if I'm correct.
