Problem with my vac mate. When I turn all the motors on this cup type thing gets sucked up and stops the suction. What is the purpose of the cup thing if it gets sucked up and stops the suction getting past? I had it all apart over the weekend, never again will I bother doing that! Below are some pics to help see what I'm on about.

The closed part facing towards the motors. That's how it came, it also says 'top' on the closed part of the cup. I don't know if it's been messed with before I had it as all 3 lugs holding the cage were wobbly and I've snapped 2 off while it was apart. Should the bottom of the cup face the ground?

Not had time mate. It did seem to be OK when I fired it up after putting it back together though. I put it back together the same way as I took it apart, so I don't know why it did it before. I have a gutter job coming up, so will know more then. I'll take a screw driver with me and turn the cup over if the problem starts again.

Saying all that though. If the cup has to rise with water going in the drum, it would have to be the other way round to the 2nd picture? But the cup has 'top' written on the base if the cup. Strange!

Well, I'm waiting for the job to start still. They've just had a new conny and said they wanted work done late last week, but didn't get in touch. Too busy on the glass to be too bothered tbh.
