Mountainside ......

I use a Series 2 with a 1/2 HP motor ......

Keep in mind about getting bigger .......
This pump is maxed at 140 gph ........
So you can have 3 - 4" membrane ..... but your max flow will be 140 gph ...

Also, get a pump with the relief valve ....... then you can set your pressure to what you want .......

thanks when you say a pressure relief valve do you mean a valve on the end of the membrane to reduce the flow to raise the psi or is there a relief valve right on the pump it self

Why did you send it in Dave , was it not pumping ,reduced flow, making loud grinding noises like a Husky ?

We need that bartering forum to get going , I have 2 pumps ( one brand new ) and a motor that need a good home !

Thanks Ogdens .....

Wishlist ...... it wouldn't spin ..... seized up ..... broke the liner ..... then made that noise ......... I also have a pump but it doesn't have a relief valve .......


regor0 ...... Series 2 ...... $45.50 ... plus shipping ....... I couldn't swore enough to fix it myself!!!!! They have the tools and knowledge ..... worth it .....

mountainside ...... the flow is controlled with the flow meter on the concentrate side ...... the pressure is controlled by both the relief valve and the flow meter ....... have to sync them to get what you want for flow .......
