Motor


If my guess is correct, it's a high pitched whining noise,...yes? The only noise I've ever heard from any of my pumps was when one of the bearings in the motor went bad. It screamed until I replaced the pump. Most pumps can be easily disassembled to make sure everything is clean and clear of obstructions. I'd try that first and then replace the pump if it doesn't help. I'm no expert, just from my own experiences. Hope it helps.

This is my third year now, but this time the AREOGEADEN PUMP WILL NOT START BACK UP unless I readjust the water bowl every morning and the water level low light is always blinking day and night. Please...


Hi, fishypete here.

There's a float and a magnetic switch in the fill tube; it's probably blocked by a bit of debris or a root and keeping the switch from accurately indicating a low water condition, producing the constant blinking.

The pump issue could be a few things.
1. the pump may be failing. It's a small magnetic drive pump, and the impeller (the small shaft with a rotating plastic blade inside the motor) may have worn out. Usually you can tell if you have a motor that requires a few taps on it to get it running.
2. the electrical contacts that connect at the back of the bowl and the lamp arm might be dirty, or not connecting properly. Jostling the unit may be getting it to connect.
3. certain models cycle the pump and it might be in the off position. I assume you've noticed it going on and off if you have that model, so I'm assuming this is not the problem.
4. the pump will eventually fail and need replacing. If this one is 3 years old that may be the problem. Properly cleaning the impeller regularly will keep it working the longest, but these types of pumps have a limited lifespan because the run nearly constantly and heat and wear attack the epoxy encapsulated motor, the shaft/impeller, and the walls of the impeller well.

Hope this helps,

fishypete

go to www.aerogrow.com. I looked there and the question I looked at said your float may have sunk. They have a number to call to get a replacement for your unit.

You can clean the bowl/basecontacts with a baking soda and vinegar. Then make sure the connection is secure when you placing the bowl. If the pump does not work after that contact Aerogrow for a replacment pump.

I have just bought a greenhouse and wpuld like to plumb water to it. The greenhouse is located 50 feet from my residence. I want to bury a line to the greenhouse but im not sure what kind of pipe i should...


The simplest installation would be CPVC pipe. PVC would be okay for cold water only, but don't believe you can buy PVC faucets, etc. (only CPVC).

The depth should be below the frost line for your region -- I looked for that, but it wasn't easily found. My guess is it's in the range of 4-5 feet.
But you should verify that, maybe thru the local building inspection agency.

No pipe (expandable or not) is going to be immune to freezing/bursting unless it's below the frost line.

If you drain/blowout the entire leg during the winter, it doesn't matter how deep you bury it. If there's no water in the line, it won't burst.
