How much water should come out of the waste pipe?

Recommended Posts

Davecuk. You are spot on. This is the vibe pump model, with tank and plumb option. I have a tank full of bottled water. Also you are correct about the amount. Probably more than actually goes into your shot. Anyhow. I've removed the pipe from the small pipe and rd routed a new pipe to the tank.

 

I have taken pictures for a forum member who requested or for anyone else interested.

The pipe in question

Images appear sideways on. Done in my phone.

Of course.

 

I got 2 Metre of food grade, flexible silicone pipe from ebay. External diameter 6mm and internal 4mm. No need for clamps as the pipes are a nice push fit. You could maybe get away with 1m, but I routed the pipe under the dual boilers (avoiding the chance they could come into contact with them) and to the rear. You can see this in the last picture. I then followed the path of the intake pipe from the tank, tucking it between the case to hold it in place - just like the intake.

 

The little bit of excess just sits inside the tank, although you can cut this if you like.

Is it a rotary pumped machine?, When you say constantly do you really mean constantly or only when pulling a shot? You can pop a vid on youtube and link to it here if you want to, it can help a lot.

If you are right and it's constantly coming out of the expansion valve, how much and is it water mains connected or internal tank? Load a bid to youtube if you like, it really helps.

If that much is coming out of the expansion valve then the valve is probably faulty. You should check the valve has not been adjusted by someone who didn't understand it's function and change the valve if it's faulty. On a rotary pump machine set it to about 11.5 bar, set your pumps bypass to around 9 bar..
