Pump modifications

Ordered a dayton booster pump from Ebay a few months back (ok maybe a year ago). I reckon it got dropped during shipping, as the frame was a little bent, but didn't pay any attention to it. It sat in the garage and was going to be used as a back-up one day. Well, "one day" finally came, and the pump wound't work.  Way too long ago to get money back from seller, file a claim, etc.  Turns out the electric motor has gotten bent a smidge and ruined the  motor, but pump head was still good.  Started playing around a little bit and came up with this compromise for a spare rinse pump.

 

Thats a 2 HP engine and belt drive ( engine was 99 bucks at harbor freight) and about 30 dollars in other fittings, pulleys, etc.

 

If I like the way it performs after a day of work, I will have a custom aluminum base cut for it,  and guard installed for the belt.

 

There is always more than one way to skin a cat!

We just got our booster pump.  I wish I got it last year.  We did a cedar roof this week and it made rinsing so much easier.  We were able to run 2 hoses off it and it was still better than one hose without the pump.. It also saves a lot of time filling the tanks.  We also get a better rinse when using CH.

DAYTON 5NXZ3 Pump,Booster,CI,3/4 HP,115/230V 

I got it on ebay from Zoro Tools for $435.   Its meant to be hard wired, so I bought a 25' 14 gauge outdoor extension cord and cut one end off and wired it.   You have to move a couple wires because it came wired for 230 v.  Easy to do.  I'm going to bolt it onto the back vertical frame of my generation 1 rig.

Can someone explain how this operates to me? I just saw AC's latest video and would really like to increase my rinse output.

- Does the booster pump connect to a gardenhose line that is turned on and "boosts" the outage load? and do you connect a garden hose to the other side or high pressure hose?

- Do they make 120V models I can hook up to a customers electric supply?

- I don't need to have a tank to draw fresh water from correct?

Appreciate any help guys. I feel like it's so complicated just because I haven't seen the set up in person.

Yes, yes and no. To answer your questions. Matt we use the same pump from Grainger got it 425.00 on sale a couple months ago. Makes rinsing fast. Also, it helps with plant protection as it puts out so much volume when insing them. Find some Underhill golf course nozzles and I will really rinse.

Just order the model in John's photo.  Its easy to move wires to make 120V.  Just put garden hose in and a garden hose out.

Well said, Tim. I'm wondering if you put a pressure relief valve on it.

Do you need one? How about a pressure gauge? Will the pump burn up after running with no water out of the gun for a while?

I'm sold on those pumps! Brandon showed us his at our Revolution get together...

Thank you, Brandon! Looking forward to your next one!

I'm not good at tinkering. Unless you find a spot where it can be mounted, they take up some space. You can get smaller 1/2 or 3/4 hp booster pump at harbor freight for around $125. They don't put out as much water as the Dayton, but it increases water flow and they are a lot smaller and easy to move around. If you set up a dedicated water tank on your rig then the dayton pump is way to go.

Howdy Dave, That's a great setup for the Gen II.  I have a Gen II with the buffer tank as well.

Does anyone know if the booster pump module listed comes with an adapter kit from the Soft Wash on line store, to fit the gen II 40 gal buffer tank? Looks like I would need the 90 degree angle lengths, to mount on the existing top frame. Does it come with it?

I have an older Dayton booster pump and lug it around, without a pressure switch. (yep... I have had to patch hoses)  it would be great to get a new and professional setup like yours. I just completed a job this past week end with well water...the booster pump literally saved the job and many hours hours! 

thanks in advance

Jeff

Jeff,

The 90 degree angle mounting tabs are welded to the Gen III style tank strap. You will need to have your existing buffer tank modified to mount the current bulk rinse pump bracket with valves. Give Whitney a call, she can get you set up with the bracket.

It is well worth mounting the pump, lugging is not much fun and takes so much more time to set up and break down. Now we use the bulk rinse pump on every job. It also makes applying Plant Wash a breeze!!!!


David

AC..here you go. The yellow hose is a bottom tank feed out hose, and the right side has the brass inlet fitting. Both black caps come off.  It came with the cradle as an option when i bought the skid as is. 

 

Thank you

Good afternoon all,

I'm looking at getting a booster pump. Do they come with pressure shut off switches, and if not, where could I find one? GFCI or any other parts that I should consider?

Thanks in advance!

If you order they typically don't come with pressure switch. Call SWS they have have pressure switch that they use on the booster pumps they sell
