    Any one had issues getting the Pure freedom kit to work.

    We recently bought a trolley system, but the control is constantly showing DE (Dead end). There is no dead end and to get it actually working we're having to ramp it up to 99 to get it going..... we then birng it donw to what we want to be working at.... (20) and it cuts out. DE again.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Longest we had it working was about 5 minutes @ 30, but then it cut out!

    When we're cleaning from the vans we have the flow control set at 20 and it goes all day.....

    Any ideas?????

    You need a controller without dead end detection,.. use the pressure switch on your pump instead.

    This controller is built in to the trolley, so stuck with this one for the moment...

    set cal to 45, and flow to 99, let it run for a few minutes then reduce to what you want it to,

    does it restart pumping after a while or does it just say DE and stops dead

    does it DE at all levels, or just when flow is low

    Just says DE stops and then sort of keeps pulsing.....

    I set flow to 99 and then did eventually start it going....... but then as soon as I bring it down to the rate I want.... ie 20, it cust out and goes back to DE....
