My XP3 is about to drive me insane

Post by Sandman1969 on Sun Jan 24, 2016 2:01 pm

Every time I clean it out, it has issues starting back up again.
I have it filled almost to the top, but for some reason, it's not moving the water back to the tank. I can see the water moving in the canister, but not to the output hose.

Any ideas?


Any suggestions on a replacement?

Have you tried cleaning the input and output tubes with a pipe cleaner?
Did you make sure the O ring around the canister is dry? Sometimes when the seal is not good it will fail drawing the water..

Turned out, it was the black plastic plug that had somehow fallen out into the tub without me seeing it.
As for pipe cleaner, I'd need a piece about 12 feet long to do that. LOL

OH NO! haha, I'm glad you sorted it out.
And btw, for your need of pipe cleaner, there are a few cheap brands available designed just for that Wink
