You'll always get what you always get.
Sage advice, Gord. I would have to go through the posts to find the reference to Quad Bypass. Both Flo-Jet and Jabsco
(interesting that the company "ITT" has purchased both companies over the last year or so, and intends to keep both companies separate even though their pumps are the same) provide pumps with the basic 4-piston system which rattles diaphragms and moves the water along through a final diaphragm and past a pressure sensor on the high side. I also know nothing about a hole or bypass system. The sensor simply senses when the pressure above the pump drops, and turns the pump back on.
I'm going to pay more attention, and try to figure out what the problems are. I am going to purchase
some "guts" for the pumps, set up a spare inlet and outlet and spare power sources, and play away.
I just got into the water, and Wednesday is my last day of work. With the launch, my stress has begun to drop. I have 3.5 months before the end of the hurricane
season, and I will spend the time learning
and enhancing the systems.
Alan, I know of no-one who is having as much trouble as me. Therefore you might be right about the quality of the product. I likely am suffering some combination of damage from sharp granules and bad luck. To the manufacturer's list of causes of suction problems, I would add "clogged filters". As for it being cold here, you bet. And I am moving. I'll be in the Carib by December 1, when the insurer says I can.
I use propylene glycol, also called RV antifreeze
. Unlike the poisonous ethylene glycol which pokes huge holes in your liver, only one in a hundred are allergic to propylene glycol. Rinse, rinse, rinse, regardless. Canada
is a great place for cross country, down hill, snow men
, skating, and of course, hot tubs.
