I made a universal fill hose from an bicycle innertube. Don't need to mess with adapters, one end slips over the faucet and a rubber band holds it on.If you do get the auto fill make sure you purchase faucet adapters so to can hook up to a bathroom or kitchen faucet. I would recommend getting the auto fill for sure.
Your float should prevent waste water from going into the motors. The problem you're more likely to have is foam getting sucked in. When that happens empty the machine and then run the motors for about 10 minutes, then I spray some WD40 into them. That will prevent them from seizing due to rust and corrosion.I have had my nautilus for several years and just recently had to replace one of the vacuum motors. I was told that what happens is that if the waste water is sucked into the motor because you waited to long to dump lint will build up on impellers. In my situation the bearings went out. It’s a machine and needs maintenance and sometimes repair. Now with new vac Motor am back in business and seems like more suction
YHello everyone, newbie here and I have a question. I’m not out on my own yet but I am helping a guy for awhile to get my feet under me a bit. I want to get my own unit and have settled in a nautilus extreme. Depending on where you look, there seems to be multiple models some say restoration model some say auto pump out model. I want the extreme with the big vac motors auto fill and auto pump out, best I can tell that would be model MXE-500map. Any help would be appreciated, which model and where to buy. I don’t want to make a 4 thousand dollar mistake.
