Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 10 November 2003My 100 psi pump is leaking.
Does that mean its kerrrrnakkered!!!!!
can it be repaired
Posted by Ken_Wainwright (Ken Wainwright), 10 November 2003You can by a service kit Mark, which will replace the consumable parts of the pump. When I ran Flojets I bought them from whoever was cheapest.
Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 10 November 2003Cheers Ken
And where might that be from??
Posted by mike_halliday (mike_halliday), 10 November 2003Mark where is it leaking from? have you tightened the jubilee clips I've found the pump heads last for ever it's always the motor that goes
Did I tell you I've got 2 pumps collecting dust in my shed a Shurflo 100psi and a Shurflo induction 135psi ( as fitted in Ashbys Ninja).
why not take this oppertunity to upgrade to a 200psi pump from ashbys ( cost £200ish)
Posted by Glynn (Glynn), 10 November 2003Good advice from Mick, a good time to upgrade.
Posted by pre-vac_Nick (pre-vac_Nick), 10 November 2003Mike,
I have a steampro 2100 can i have a 200psi pump fited to that type of machine?
p.s. thanks for the flyers and postcards
Posted by mike_halliday (mike_halliday), 10 November 2003Nick, how much room have you got inside? the 200psi pump has the same size motor as a shurflo but the pump head is a lot bigger approx 30mm x 50mm x 130mm
and the by-pass plumbing is different if you twiddle the solution lines you should get it in.
Posted by Ken_Wainwright (Ken Wainwright), 10 November 2003Prochem, Extracta, Woodbridge, Ashbys, Alltec...... Virtually anyone who sells a machine with your model pump.
Posted by Kinver_Clean (Kinver_Clean), 11 November 2003It may well be the diaphragm leaking. I have some Flojet diaphragms lurking in the shed. If you want one let me know.
