    Interesting.

    Capture apo ridgid.JPG

    Couple of concerns.............

    Will it be necessary to beef up the strainer/filter?

    Probably can only be run intermittently when vacs are off.

    How will it react under the higher vacuum forces of a full-size porty when pump is off?

    Need to install larger adapter on machine.

    Would be ideal to make it possible to power it from the porty itself instead of having to run another cord...............Maybe add a pigtail for it directly from the lower amp internal circuit, and whittle a short pigtail to the pump, or even just get a dual splitter for the lower amp machine piggy.

    Might be an easier way to add a APO if space is tight inside, or maybe even regardless of space.

    Vacuum pressure in the tank would probably prevent that from pumping anything out and damage the pump itself. The tank on a shop vac is under positive pressure and that thing was probably designed for that. A waste tank is in under negative pressure.

    I made my own pump out, or should I say I assembled my own for less than 450.00 on my old box truck mount. I'll try to remember to get some pics and or a little short video next week. Works better than my 2200.00 Comet.

    I used a bilge pump for a boat in my truckmount. It works for a while until it got clogged with hair. I might try it again with a nylon sock over the filter. It was only 29 bucks.

    We are using a 12 volt, 10 GPM, Shurflo pump for our TM. Been using the Shurflo for over 5 years and over 1500 hours with zero problems. Coming build we are changing to a better, lower amp, 12 volt, 20 GPM pump for a pump out

    I do not think the top demo would work in a basement.

    That's 12 feet up of water psi you would need. Plus you need 50 to 100 feet of dump hose.

    Also, that's clean water, not water full of fine filter clogging materials.

    I never used trash pump in HWE cleaning. But I think you need to clean the fins that move water more often then a filtered pump internals.

    I will let you know when I check. It is in a box stacked in a corner in my shop. My wife bought all kinds of patio furniture and stuff that is stacked in front of it. I will have to dig to get to it. We are about to install a big cement patio in our backyard. Should have the stuff out of my way to get to it by the end of the month :LOL:.

    It might not work in a basement, but that does not necessarily matter unless it is being used on a similar basement application.
    One question is can it be tweaked to perform efficiently as an alternative to an internal porty APO?

    I'm loving the idea that it can be temporarily mounted on the exterior as opposed to internally, and with no modifications to the internal wiring.

    Problem is you would have to commit to either permanently installing the large thread adapter on your machine, of fashioning an adapter to test it.

    At 40 bucks, I would be happy if I got a year out of one of them if they can be swapped out that easy without diving inside.

    Biggest obstacle will be a compatible filtering mechanism.

    Filter really well before the waste tank...

    Still the best pumps for dirty water are the fountain pumps. Instead of the impeller attachted to the motor the motor rotates magnets that rotate magnets inside the impeller... You cannot burn them out by plugging them up.

    So how do you install a pump out? Does it get wired to the float in the waste tank so it knows when to turn on?

    That's one way of several ways to do it.

    Different pumps and options.

    Best to go with a dedicated switch if possible.

    Easier than also having to also install and wire a float and usually more reliable.

    A bilge pump is all the Prochem's super over priced pump out is. Bilge pump and a housing, a super cheap float switch, with some fittings that's it. Last time I checked the bilge pump in there was about 150. average. Probably less if you shopped around. Chemtex was making basically the exact same thing with a stainless steele housing for about 500. total. Don't know if they still have it.
