Re: Water backs up in the floor drain during heavy...
The sump pump shold not be run into the sanitary sewer, but if your floor drain is hooked to a sump pump pit and it doesn';t pump the water before it gets to the drain tile it could come up in the drain,, to solve the problem get a pump that the float is lower in the pit,, suggestion zoeller cast iron submersable pump cost about 100 less the install price, great low profile pump, it keeps less waterin the sump pump pit so there is less mosture

This is a problem that can be annoying but there is no simple fix. There are several things you can try.
If the tires are new, clean them and scrub them up with an abrasive cleaning pad. The green 3M scotchbrite pads work well.
I have sprayed Pam or any available spray cooking oil to the tires to quiet them. The main disadvantage to this is that the wheelchair may become uncontrollable and slippery at higher speeds on the floor surface. Exercise caution and test this first. If there is a control problem, use a cleaning agent to remove the tire lubricant. There are commercial car compounds to spray on drive belts to keep them from squealing and slipping which may work.
Try cleaning the floors to a dull finish or try a different floor finish. Trial and error may be the best solution. Hope this helps.
Flash Code 2 indicates that the voltage is too high or too low. Check batteries and cable connections. Charge the batteries. If this fault occurs during battery charging, the charger is defective or not adjusted correctly. Empty batteries will charge. Dead batteries will not normally charge.
I Have a Merits S-142. I just purchased an installed 2 new batteries, my problem is the Red light stays on even after 18 hrs of charging. Also when I turn the Key on NO lights come on. I checked the fuses and the all look OK. Can you please help me Mike
Bob First unplug both connectors from the rear of the chair. Then on the right hand side under the seat push the small handle forward until it stops, then rotate the seat and pull up at the same time the seat should lift off the seat post. Carefully place the seat on the floor next to the base. Remove the shroud pulling upward to release the velcor fastners and voila!! the batteries. Now if the seat is hard to pull up try twisting it back and forth to help get it loose from the seat post. You might need some help in lifting because this seat and attached parts are heavy. After replacing the batteries grease the post to help getting it off easier next time. Hope this helps you
Actually, the clunking could be several things. First, check to make sure that the nuts holding the wheels on are very tight. If they are pneumatic, check the tire pressure to see if it is at the proper level. If they are flat-free, these tires won't have valve stems and have a semi-solid core instead of a tube. Chairs that sit in one place over a period of time will develop a flat spot on the tires. Usually, if it hasn't been too long, they will go away with driving and or warm weather and driving, otherwise, you need to replace the offending tire or buy some earplugs.
It sounds to me like you may have a vent proglem. I presume a professional plumber did your conversion? You may want to call him or her back to adjust the tank water level. This will assure you have at least the minimum amount of water required to create the suction necessary to draw the waste down the drain. A partially obstructed vent and/or low water level would contribute to the trouble you describe, though it could be something else.
Try using a Voltage meter to test the Voltage coming from your batteries. Your batteries should be as close to 12v. your motors are 24v. Even if just one battery is bad this can cause alot of headaches.
