Sounds like an air leak somewhere. If you dont see bubbles running through the gph meter, start your inspection from the outlet of the metering tube all the way to the pump. Look for signs of leakage like crusty soap residue. The cauliflower effect from the soap is a dead giveaway of a problem.

I have a performer Bear. Yes, I know it's old, but it runs like a scalded dog! When i shut it off and before I open the waste tank discharge drain., the waste water starts running out the front of the machine.

Any Ideas?

Re: need help



Hi- I noticed your posting and that nobody answered- I have a 100a Prochem and nobody wants to talk top me either.
Are you having any success finding other people using these old machines and who have parts and manuals?
