Overview

Reeflo Hammerhead-Barracuda Hybrid External Circulation Pump

The Reeflo HYBRID pumps have conversion kits that allow you toswitch between models thereby adjusting flow and watt draw. This increases the flow range allows you to adjust the pump to your systems needs. So instead of two models there are just one.When it comes to external pumps,ReeFlo is truly in a class of its own.

FAQS

Tips & Troubleshooting
We hope you will find the following suggestions and comments regarding pump installation to be helpful. We do not claim that any of these suggestions are the only way to accomplish your job, but in general they will solve many of the commonly found problems and help you prevent many
others.Please note that ReeFlo pumps are external pumps. Do not submerge!

  1. Locate the pump as close to the source as possible. It is best to have your main (longest)run of pipe on the discharge side of the pump. The pump is designed to push water, not pull it.
  2. Always have your inlet pipe diameter equal to, or larger than, the discharge line. This helpsprevent cavitation.
  3. Never run a pump dry. This may damage the mechanical seal and impeller. They aredesigned to pump fluid, not air. Insure the pump is full of water before you turn it on, and thatit doesn’t out pump the supply.
  4. If your pump is producing too much flow, you can reduce the flow by partially closing avalve on the discharge line. Never restrict the inlet!!! Surprisingly, this will make the motor workless and use less electricity!! This “valving back" simply causes the pump to operate further backon its performance curve.
  5. If your pump is not producing enough flow. The easiest step is to widen the line especially onthe intake. As illustrated on the chart the narrowness of the line has great bearing on “frictionloss"....think bar straw vs. regular straw.
  6. If more flow is required than a single pump can produce, consider using two or morepumps in parallel. This will double the flow. If more pressure is required consider using twopumps in series (one feeding into the other). This will have the effect of doubling the pressure.We have found that using two pumps instead of one larger pump uses an average of 30% lesselectricity.
  7. Choose a pump that can give you the required flows at the lowest possible powerconsumption. Since pumps often operate continuously, the power consumption (watts - notamps), and its effect on your monthly utility bill can be very significant.
  8. Check to be sure the motor electrical connections are set up to match the supply voltage.
  9. Install shut off valves before and after the pump, so you can easily remove it from the linewithout having to drain your system. Be sure to use ball valves, as they have low frictionloss characteristics.
  10. Use Teflon paste (not tape) for sealing threaded joints.
  11. Make sure all your pipe joints are airtight. This is especially important on the suction side.
