My System Specs

Back in the old days we used to have to climb up on top with the water to fill it, but it proved to be somewhat dangerous as the chmaber is over 6ft high. I've got the guy in charge of maintenance checking around to see if he can find a direct replacement, the PC pump idea was a just in case thing, being an open loop, I'm thinking it would probably fry the pump if it ran out of water.

I feel his pain even before it begins.... I suspect it will probably go something like my experience when trying to get replacement parts for an old ultrasonic parts cleaner which went something like this....

Me: I need a pump for an ultrasonic cleaner, can't read the part number off of the pump, but the model# of the cleaner is XXXXXX-XXX

Them: XXXXXX-XXX????? Really???? I'll ask around, but I'm not sure how much info we're going to be able to find on that model.... Ol' Greasy Joe was probably the last person around here to even see one of those, let alone work on one, and he retired 8 years ago...........
