Hi James, This may sound a bit odd but... if you really want to make sure all of the water is out of the unit just remove the drain hose and use a shop vac to draw out all the residual water. Then just place about 1 to 1.5 cups of vegetable oil in the sump for the winter. I do not recommend anti-freeze due to the associated health reasons of same. Then next season remove the drain hose and draw out the vegetable oil before returning it to regular service. This works well for resorts in cold climates. The vegetable oil can over several seasons fatten up or harden pump seals but is no more harmful than the anti-freeze on the seals.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My 1992 cavalier shakes while idleing in gear with foot on break but stops while in motion or idleing in park?

hi from uk the symptoms you clearly describe sound like your brake servo /vacuum cylinder is at fault ie whilst brake pedal is off all is ok ? but when pedal pressed engine falters? this is a sign that the seal on the vac piston inside the servo unit is allowing air /atmospheric air to enter the servo as you brake and this assists braking however when inner pistonseal is leaking at some point inside the servo bore ie a scoared or rusty point ?the atmospheric air passes the piston/seal and so the vacuumpipe to servo is drawing this air into inlet manifold resulting in upsetting fuel mixture ie weak too much air ratio to fuel resulting inshaking engine you describe ? try this?? if you disconnect vac pipe from servo unit then seal off the pipe with thumb then ask assistant to start engine then it should run ok ? also it should be ok when b/pedal pressed remember there will be no vac assistance ?? if above test prove right ? then you will req a new servo unit only not complete master cylinder too ? you can diy this then bleed brakes after replacing servo ? hope this helps

Want to rmove sludge,organics from pod wihout rmoing the water

You may need to develop a centrifuge in line with your intake to throw off water, or a screened water take up which will drain back to your source, but it must be sealed while running.
Central vacs have an optional water pickup device that works in line for spills . I do not like these but the concept could help your scenario. The idea is that there is a short hose, then an inline pail with a drop bucket for the water and a flow thru intake and out port to the actual vac piping so the air can continue thru to the vac without carrying the water into the wall. Gravity makes the water drop and allows the air to continue down the vac line, but the sealed pail ensures you have continuous suction.
In your case you would have to rig a shutoff float as well. Look up a company called VACUMAX on the INTERNET. I think they might be of help as well if they are still in business,around Elmira Ontario, Canada
