GFO Reactor pumpp

Postby TCreek » Tue Dec 09, 2014 2:45 pm

Can anyone recommend a good pump for a BRS GFO reactor. I have had MJ900 and MJ1200, which were hte recommended pumps for the reactor, but neither seem to be able to push trough the GFO once it is wet.

Cobalt MJ1200. There is some other issue that's not letting the pump feed through it correctly.

Take pump off and make sure it's pushing water. If good flow there is something clogging the reactor inside. How old is GFO? Long periods of time it can eventually settle and collect detritus inside. Which can decrease flow or plug up.
