  • Fusion air pump

    I have 4 or 5 of these of varying sizes and thought I'd share a quick fix I use for them as I know they're pretty popular. If you have a model with an adjustment dial and it seems to be weakening in output, obviously check the diaphram first, if thats okay, I've found that a blown circuit board on the adjustment knob can be the culprit. I simply bypass the adjustment wiring and go straight to the motor and tada! Works perfect, of course you can no longer adjust with the dial and the pump goes at maximum but you can bleed off excess at your gang valve. You do have a gang valve installed to prevent back pressure right?

    Quick note: When you bypass you'll notice the dissimilar wiring you are connecting (copper and aluminum) the best way to connect them is with a connector designed for different metals for safety reasons. Personally I just use wire nuts.

          Feel free to pm it to me if you would rather write it in a different document than the posting window and I will get it posted up with the proper formatting for you (with your full credit of course)
