Gardiners backpack pump

Recommended Posts

Could anybody recommend a replacement pump that will fitĀ the gardiner backpack v2 and a possible link? It appears they are out of stock and need one pretty sharpish. Thanks in advance šŸ‘

I would honestly suggest if you were that reliant on a backpack I would order another backpack. Are you sure its the motor not not a blown fuse.

As @sprucementioned fault diagnosis is paramount in this trade and the ability to understand how your equipment works. .

Check the fuseĀ 

Check for a broken wireĀ 

Check the flow controller module outputĀ 

Have you ran bleach through it ?

If the pump is knackered buy a new oneĀ 

What make is it? There's a clue contract the manufacturerĀ 

Darren at DA Components sells diaphragm backpack pumpsĀ 

Chemical rated options are also availableĀ 

This isn't intended as a dig, I see so many posts where a degree of common sense would prevent such questions and also like i said, Understand and look further into the equipment you own as it's an assetĀ

Yeah I do have a little grey matter up there although stupidly left some degreaser in the backpack after a job and forgot to rinse it through, only realised 2 weeks later.. as regards to the fuse etc it all lights up just the pump doesn't work.. may just buy a new one save the faff.. thanks guys!!

Bit of tfrĀ isnā€™t going to hurt a pump like that we permanently have a Virosol mix left in ours all the time and they last at least 3 years and we put tons of hypo through them as wellĀ

Not reliant, its just a upvc clean and no way around the back to run a hose except through the house which I wouldn't do, no outside tap so it's a case of filling from van and walking through.. luckily the price reflects the hassleĀ

That's the best way to operate. Think on your toes. There's always a way to may money with legitimate reasonsĀ
