Hey Guys I talked to eley like 3 weeks ago we orders 400 FT of 3/4 and that's all they had. They are coming out with a new line of 3/4 but its going to be more expensive. Its suppose to be a full flow 3/4 ( even the fittings) and its going to be drinking water safe. The sales guy said its most likely going to be 20% higher than the old 3/4 hose because of the fittings and that its safe for drinking water. He said they are rolling it out on production so they are still making it they are just rolling out the new line. Also they said you will be able to do custom lengths so if you want a 200ft hose they will cut it to length.
Your going to get mixed answered man don't over think it like Shingle Brite said. We have 2 rigs both with no more than a 15 ft lead and we have never got close to ice in the pump. If you feel better at night making a 100 FT coil then do it. What Lori posted is from the MANUFACTURE so it should hold some weight. Right now its 32 outside yesterday it was like 70 and we have had 0 issues. Having a long coil may trap water but 1. water sep catches most of the water and 2. your pump is not going to freeze lol so keep it simple man your not going to lose much by having a coil nor are you going to gain a lot having a 10 ft lead.. Do whats easy for your rig.and make changes as you learn and grow. You will never know until you do it yourself because everyone is going to have different thoughts.
just my 2 cents but don't run it through a water tank haha we run 4 1in air setups each with a 10 -15ft lead. Having a 75 ft coil just means it takes longer to hit the pump. I am sure someone will chime in and say how wrong this is but I am just telling you how it is. Our pumps have never frozen we have high humidity. We do run a water separator which takes out water but coiling 75 feet of air hose is just a waste IMO. Hell if your going to coil 75 feet why not coil 200 now there is an idea!
Dont by used IMO buy new its not worth buying a used pump. There are a ton of places that sell air pumps and they all SHOULD come with a warranty. We only use ARO pumps and they are all backed by a 5 year warranty. Shop around do the research and find the best deal with good customer service.
Thanks Kevin Few things I agree its better to rinse a poly pump it will last longer just like rinsing everything but you DON't HAVE to rinse it however its always better to. As far as what you said about the green and clear gaskets. This model number 6661AJ-3EB-C is the one with the Santoprene Diaphragm . When I look at my pump with the "clear" gasket that model number matches the pump. With model number 6661AJ-344-C matched to my pump with the " green" gasket this is the PTFE Diaphragm. So Maybe they switched it from last time you looked? I am not sure but how it was said was correct in the video I would be happy to try and take a picture tomorrow. But per my pumps and model numbers they match up with the colors...
so we are going thru this right now.. They order the tank for us and it has a catch basin as well. They said they would rather us not request a fitting towards the bottom but they will do it. The main reason they dont want to do it is if it leaks its a pain however they maintain the the tank so if it leaks they fix it.. We are using the pool pump. We use to get 300G totes and they had a 2in ball valve at the bottom and a top draw. We used the pool pump for that also but when you draw from the top you still have to prime the pump every single time. We just told them to make the port at the bottom and we will deal with it... I know that does not help you in your situation but maybe buy a cheap HF Compressor and a ebay cheap pump and transfer it that way.. Your price is still under 1k and its pretty easy to do
We replaced all our pumps already I mean the last thing I want to do is pay shipping on a pump and then have to pay for it to be rebuild again and then shipping back. It was fully rebuilt the 1st time and it crapped out. As far as parts being available I went to 3 different local pump companies that all do repairs and they sell that brand of pump. They said the pump is so old that its hard to find the right parts for it they suggested trying ebay for universal off brand parts since the pump was over 10 years old. So I am just saying a cheap ebay pump would last 9 months like this one but at a fraction of the cost. I mean our new ARO pumps brand new with Teflon ended up being like 100 dollars more than our 10 year old rebuilt kynar pump.
The reason I said the cheap ebay pumps is because we got a rebuild Kynar pump from you and it lasted 8 months before it started leaking like crazy and I think we paid 799 for it and now every local shop says its to old to get parts for so now its a paper weight. So the cheap ebay pumps are not kynar that's for sure but they will last 1 year so I can go 3 years of buying new pumps vs 1 year. That's all I was saying On our rigs we now run new ARO pumps with Teflon and they are fantastic but for chem transfer I am all about cheap options like pool pumps, cheap knock off pumps, or even gravity feeding it however that's not the fastest option out there.
man just buy a cheap 1 in pump off ebay that's new and save money just rinse it use your air compressor on your rig to pump its you don't have to buy another compressor to run it... Your only transferring chem so why drop so much money to transfer that's just our opinion. We now to mini bulk and have a valve at the bottom of our 100 gallon tank and suck it out from the bottom its fast easy and cheap.. If you want to spend a lot of money I am sure you can find a easy solution.
Imo run away fast... I've heard it works for some guys but overall I feel like it's a big scam. Just our thoughts tho. They route traffic thought home advisors and not your website so it does not help your seo plus your paying like 10 bucks or whatever per lead and a lead is a phone number no guarantee you even get a hold of them.. only way to know is try... We talked to a guy who dropped like 10k plus a year on leads and made like 40k from them alone which is great but I dont think that's the case in most situations
