Shurflo Pump Problem
OK (red faced), I pulled our Shurflo water pump yesterday and cleaned it. Put it back and it still did not work. Make the decision to buy a new one. OOOPS! I came back in later and looked at my work table. There was a major part to the pump that I DID NOT put back in.
I pulled the pump again and reinstalled the missing part, but it still didn’t work. I removed the pump and did a quick pressure test, I blew in the inlet. Air was coming out around the seal. They do not use a gasket to seal the pump, just a ridge and a lip. The inner rubber sits again this and forms a seal when the pump is new. My pump is 10 years old.
Since I do not have any kind of gasket material, I used silicone seal to create a gasket. The pump is still sitting here. I am waiting for the silicone to completely cure before reinstalling it and testing it again. I have to get this done by Saturday since we are going to Camping World anyway.
I got a really good deal on a group of ebooks at 30 Ebooks For $9.95. This is one of the best deals I have seen for a while. My interest is in selling these and making an online income. HOWEVER, there are some nice topics you might be interested in. Take a look, there are 30 titles such as inexpensive weddings, make money from crafts, car dealer auto cons, selling your home, rekindling love, making smoothies, recipe books and a lot more.
Being sick meant not exercising for nine days. I have been back at it since Monday. I hope you have joined me by getting a little more exercise. Even when you stop exercising for a day or two you have not failed at exercise, just get back to it. If you read my blog daily or even periodically, maybe seeing that I keep at it will help you to decide to keep at it.
Yesterday I bought some more exercise equipment. I bought two spring tension hand exercisers for $3.99 at Sport Chalet, the mega sports store. Now I have 10 pound weights to life, a recumbent exercise bicycle and these hand exercisers. PLUS, I am starting to do push ups in the morning and at night. ALSO, Sharon and I walk the dog 0.7 miles twice a day.
Come on! Get healthy. Join me by at least walking a block or two every day.
