    Guys, Please help out that poor little money maker called Delavan by opening the lid when it is in use so some of he trapped heat will get out. It would be better if it was not in a box so the heat will dissipate faster but I know you don't want the weather to mess it up.

    I am moving mine around and I am rigging up a little cover for them or might use a plastic bag so when it rains, they will not get wet but will be able to get rid of the heat fast when the cover is off.

    Instead of just flushing the D. with water, try pumping/recycling 2 gallons of Vinegar through the pump for a couple of minutes to disolve and clean out the SH crystals that collect inside the pump. (Pour them into a 5 gal bucket and have the input/outflow tubes in the same bucket.)
    Mine was running poorly and had eventually lost prime. Called The Man, Bob, and he told me about it. Had to take apart the input hose and funnel Vinegar into the pump - as it had lost prime - but after several frustrating minutes it started to drawl and eventually it worked like new.
    My D. is trailer mounted and used to transfer SH to my main tank only; Bandit for spraying. I changed trucks and the new one does not run the D. as well as the old one. I assume the wiring is different (smaller gauge or too many feeders to other components) and have to change it or run a line directly from the battery to get it running right.

    ***Updated*** Just bought a deep cell marine battery and hooked it up like it is posted on the site - 3 feet from the D., etc and I was Shocked at how much faster the D. ran! That pump really does have some power! The van hook up stunk and the truck was ok, but nothing compared to this. Thanks for the tip!

    Thats a good question Charles. I'm not even sure you can do that. Kinda like trying to park a Hummer in a dog house. I would think You would need a bigger dog house! (Replace dog house with much bigger hose and spray orifice.)

    Yeah, its possible... I think Russ is running dual delavans and Andy from PT mentioned something about it to me. It seems like a great idea for rinsing roofs, etc. I figured I would ask here instead of bothering people directly...atm anyway

    Re: Delevan tips

    I know you can run duel pumps off the same tank. Thats no problem. Are you trying to run them both through the same chem line? Thats where I would think there would be a problem. That what I thought you were talking about. I may have missunderstood.

    Re: Delevan tips

    All I heard was dual pumps = more gpm... How exactly the system is set up that is what I'm unsure about. I'm interested in increasing my gpm to speed up the rinse time on roofs and housewashing not so much for chem application.

    After more reading it seems the dual set-up is more trouble than its worth...
