Submersible utility pump needs oil,what kind should I use in it.


What looks like 'oil' coming out of your pump is actually water! It has leaked and is fully contaminated. The seal for the pump must have leaked and it filled up. Take the 'big screw' back out and drain it and let it dry for a couple days. Then use some silicone as a gasket and put it back together. You may run again! It will probably fail sooner rather than later with a bad bearings from the water damage. That's what gave it the oily appearance.

Pump makes loud humming sound, does not pump, eventually overheats and trips breaker. Tsurumi Vancs 50pn2.4s-61


Pull out the oil inspection plug and check oil. It is filled with mineral oil and should appear clear. If milky it would indicate faulty seals. The tsurumis are overheating often in skimmer box applications where the top of the pump is not submersed when the skimmer intake screen gets plugged. Tsurumi no longer accepts pumps for repair at their US facility. If you contact them they may refer you to a recommended rebuilder. It is a shame as we have sold hundreds of these the last 4 years and have suddenly had a rash of this similiar complaint in the last few months with little success in repairing. We have since dropped this line and replaced with Atlantic water Garden Pumps in similiar sizes.

Should you have charge pump pressure when unit is engaged 25-2012model 12-xd-31981 ser. what should charge pump pressure be


Anytime the pump is running, there should be charge pump pressure present. When the pump is in nuetral, the hot oil shuttle will usually block flow, so the the charge pump builds up pressure untill the charge pump relief opens up, the pressure setting this occurs at depends on the what the OEM wanted. When the pump strokes up, there is a pressure differential between the two work ports, which shifts the hot oil shuttle spool, allowing oil to flow across the hot oil shuttle relief valve which will have a lower setting than the charge pump relief. So in Nuetral you will generally have a higher charge pump pressure and when on stroke, you will see charge pump pressure drop 50 to 100 psi.

Drive systems difference


Magnetic Drive: In a magnetic-drive pump, an electrical charge creates a magnetic field that causes the magnet on the impeller to rotate and pump water. Magnetic drive pumps are completely sealed and do not require lubrication. Because they do not contain oil, magnetic drive pumps are safer for ponds with fish as oil leaks do not occur. This type of pump does not generate high head heights, meaning it is unable to lift pond water vertically, which you might need to supply water to a fountain. Work best in cleaner environments with little or no debris Highly efficient, cost-effective operation Since they have no seals to wear out, they require little maintenance Occasionally clean the impeller and its chamber to ensure efficient operation Direct Drive: Direct-drive pumps have an enclosed motor that is powered by electricity, which turns the impeller shaft. Direct-drive pumps achieve significant head height so they tend to work well for fountains or waterfalls. Some models seal the motor in an oil-filled shell with seals around the cord and impeller shaft. These are risky to use if you have a pond stocked with fish as there is an ever-present danger of water contamination if a leak occurs. Many newer pumps, however, feature alternative lubrication over oil that is safe for fish. Look for oil-free models if you house fish or other aquatic life in your water garden. Typically more expensive to operate Ideal pump type for fountains or other accessories Pushes water rather than pulling it Not easily repaired by the user
