Thanks, al. I was hoping I would get an answer from you...
Anyone with any knowledge of the machine should never wait 20-30I specifically state that the time to leave the pump running is two or
seconds for drops to start appearing. I haven't read your backflushing
guide, but I hope you advise not running the pump for more than a few
seconds, not past the "lock out" sound.
maybe three seconds at the most. My most recvent page states:
Q: What do you mean when you say not to leave the pump running when
backflushing for an "extended period"?
A: Since it only takes about two or maybe three seconds at the most
for the pump to reach all the pressure it possibly can achieve when
backflushing, then I would say that an "extended period" would be
defined as, "More than about three seconds."
My personal thoughts are that a machine with a 3-way that the
manufacturer states cannot take backflushing is not properly designed
and not worth buying.
