how can i clear an air lock?
Trolley or van mount?
where is the air lock
cheeres bud its a van mount
just got the van with the tank,pump,flo control. i think i may have been to hasty!! should of given it more time i think it has pushed it out? sound ok?
Just run the water for a bit and it often does clear.
It will usually splutter for a few secs then clear.
Make sure the system is not drawing in air though.
If you are disconnecting hose reel or poles or anything. You are letting air back into the system.
I had this after swopping DI vessel in van, just ran it at 99 on controller for a few minutes, cleared it nae sweat.
Good point Damo, I get a few seconds of splutter every time I reconnect at the next job, but I just expect it so no issue, and the flow clears very quickly.
This is also the issue with running microbore hose or minibore hose. Air seems to get trapped easily in bigger bore pipes
Last week i have been experimenting with running JUST pole hose throughout my system. So far so good, just want to make sure pump is not working too hard pushing down a small diameter hose. BUT i have got 50M on the reel not a 100
