Re: Lavac Spurts at Pump when I Pump

Once we got over the initial problems with using old stock diaphragms we have not had further issues. I believe our last diaphragm has been installed for 8 years or more. We do keep a spare pump and every so often switch them over to clean out with vinegar but this is just a maintenance thing with us.

Cheers Sue

Re: Lavac Spurts at Pump when I Pump

Lavac, the finest head ever.

Ode to the Lavac

I must go down to the heads again, to the broken seat and ask why
Does the lid not fit and the pump not work, however hard I try ?

And the valve's stuck, and the vacuum's gone, and my guts are crying
For a peaceful ****, with a detailed book on lunar alts rising.

I MUST go down to the heads again, I can no longer be denied,
It's wild call and a clear call, though I still retain my pride.

And all I need is small container, perhaps a black rubber bucket,
A dash below, and then on deck, to leeward I will chuck it.

I MUST GO down to the heads again, the seal is quickly mended,
And the pipes are all cleared, and the outlet works as intended.

All I ask is that the suction sucks, and the smile upon my face
Will 'clipse the sun rising; it's not surprising, the heads is a calmer place
