    Re: The Eagle Has Landed

    it seems like it was only yesterday that you graduated from jetting 101 school.

    probably because it was

    your graduation gift was the box of gloves

    thanks for the help and the burger. sure beats an apple with a worm.

    picture of before and after are a bonus. make sure to mark your hose and the last couple feet to prevent a pull out. especially before you get a foot valve.

    put it to work and impress us.

                  Tested my electric pulley boom arm. Works great as is. I got other things to buy, also don't want that extra mass hanging out the back.

                          Oh boy, k I did a stoppage, then repiped a unit above a garage waste system horizontal lines. Inluding 4inch main, then jumped thru hoops w/ the stupid insurance company to confirm my new toy was insured. AND, with all the rain all day I didn't want to pull it out of the truck. And try to familiarize with it while the rain is dripping off my hat and getting the instructions or pull stuff out that was in the the way and get it wet. The truck is still messy, I'm using the packing materials to hold it from rolling or tumbling over. I bought some cool tie down straps winch kinda deaybobs and some hooks. I need to cut a shelf out to give precious a new spot in the back. So in a way it wasn't the rain. But had it been sunny and if I didn't get the slider in the dirt from the insurance company I would have pulled it out and fired it up and been late for dinner.
                          And for the record, I've done my fair share of roof jobs in the rain.

                            What do these two black knobs do?
                            K me first.
                            The one in front of the machine is psi
                            And the by the pump is gpm.
                            The instructions were either not clear or I missed that.
                            Am I right? Do any of you awesome and brilliant plumbers have any other suggestions or corrections concerning these pre mentioned knobs.
                            Thanks Robert

                              grasshopper

                              this is the variable pulsation bypass valve. it allows for the pump to pulsate and cause the hose to vibrate. makes it easier for the hose to advance when needed or pull back when stuck. truthfully a foot pedal will also help with making the hose move.



                              the knob at the right upper side is the regulator / unloader pressure adjustment. normally set around 4000#. usually adjust it slightly higher so that the pressure remains 4000 and only starts to bypass after that. doesn't matter what size nozzle you're running. your rpm dictates flow and unloader dictates pressure. higher rpm = higher flow and that = higher psi as needed with larger nozzles.

                              next time i see you, on with the wax and off with the wax. bring a lunch, it's going to be a long day
