Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

Flinging oil, indeed. These pumps are like a big dog that drools and sheds all the time. Once you make accommodations, you just get back to loving the dog.

I run paper toweling down the suction hose as I pull it out. Then the pump goes into a plastic shopping bag, until it is emptied. Double-bagged in a larger trash bag, with the oily paper towel in there to absorb whatever else happens.

If you treat it like radioactive hazmat, always use paper towels generously, always bag and double bag, AND stow the bagged empty pump in the original box so as to contain that flogging hose while it tries to oil the boat...

I still think the fuss is well worthwhile, because the damned thing works so well compared to any other option. And unlike rebuilding the head, this one can't give you anything antibiotics won't cure.

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

12v pump connected directly to sump. Money well spent. Couldn't be easier, faster, or cleaner. My Universal holds 2 gallons, so I just keep the 2 empty 1gal. jugs from my previous oil change and pump directly into them. No mess, no problems.

Cheers,
Will

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

You found a 12v oil pump that really works? That doesn't cost a fortune, or spin around without moving any oil?

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

When I was in the business we did 100+ oil changes a year. We also sold and installed Reverso oil change systems. The joke was that once we sold one we lost the customer because it was so easy for the customer (former) to do their own!
