Edit: this topic was split from this thread on modifying a pump intake.
I believe that "plastic cuff" you are referring too on the P-180 dictates the pressure of the pump?
I had one P-180 setup that I had a pressure gauge on the outlet side of the pump. (4" dredge)
New, I think it was about 38 lbs. of pressure. I filed off the "stop ring" on the plastic inlet fitting and tapped it in towards the impellor until I felt it start to drag. I now had 54 lbs. of pressure at the outlet.
I bought a new dredge last fall and I'm fixing it up for cold weather dredging. Added drain plugs, TinyTac, new matting float plugs, some paint and hot water.
Now I'm working on the hoses. I am going to add CamLoc fittings for the pump intake and pressure sides.
My question is what to do with the jetlog inductor ports?????
Anyone have an idea that worked well for them?
Went to the claim at Canyon Creek last week to see how things look. I was surprised to see some creek open.
Being I have a bad case of spring fever I have decided on spring dredging this year so thanks for the post.
Anyone know where to get a water heater for the dredge? Not looking to set up a heated wet suit just want a bucket of hot water to warm the hands in.
