Setting up new motor. Filter help


#21

I only filter between tank and pump. No filter between source and tank


#22

I think the 50 mesh the holes are to big and a 60 or 80 works better to catch stuff. The nozzles on the surface cleaner use to clog pretty often. But haven’t since the high pressure filters they last a long time to and are way better than having to stop and unclog a nozzle!!

Yeah this job I did I used a hydrant and had to upgrade the stock filter I been using that came w the pump as after seeing what initially shoots out is a lot of rust and sediment. I guess not running a filter isn’t too bad but be sure to have extra seals and ceramic plungers.

Flush the hydrant before you use it.


#25

Of course. Flushed it before each fill up. Even still.


#26

I run 80 mesh on all the machines. It’s the happy medium for the best of both worlds. I also backflush them weekly

Anyone else having trouble with the clear bowl filters from pressure Tek ?? Getting the bowl off and on maybe I just got a bad batch.
