Powersurvivor 40e oil change

Has anyone changed the oil in the drive unit of your 40e? There is no instruction for it in the manual but I just bough a new unit and want to tear it down and overhaul it.

That guy Gary has the video on how to do it.

Katadyn and PUR Watermakers: Installation, Maintenance and Troubleshooting

People hate on the thing but I like the 40e.

Thanks man I wish I had had that when I was taking the thing apart! I probably I screwed some stuff up! There is actually no instructions on changing the oil. He just tells you not to do it.

We've got one also, and I have no intention of ever changing the oil. It just doesn't generate enough heat to break down the lube, and there are no combustion gasses to dirty it up.

Re: Powersurvivor 40e oil change

My maintenance so far has been pickeling it (in filthy tropical storm runnoff waters here), and.... looking at it?

Re: Powersurvivor 40e oil change

I like to look at mine a lot too!

On a side note, I just called Katadyn because my piston shaft was defective (black ceramic chipping off) and even though I bought the unit used they are sending me a new one free of charge. The whole phone call lasted 30 seconds! That is customer service. Glad I went with Katadyn.

That mimics my maintenance regime. Clean it, stare at it, preserve it. We've got 285 hours on it and it has never been a problem.
