Now is the time to test the group of fittings that connects to the right of the solenoid. This is really bad because you have to take off the whole back panel.
Well I took off the panel to remove the solenoid and I had to take a picture (second picture) what was behind the panel. (The solenoid was being held on by 2 screws.) So I took off the group of fitting and they look totally clogged with rust. The barbs are the same way. I believe the only way to fix this problem is to order a new part from Grainger.
Well, I guess this it just going to happen if you have an older Jim Coleman shampooer. The shampoo solenoid valve is rusted and is not allowing liquid to pass through.
What happens when there is a problem with your foam brush in Wylam? Someone just steals your foam brush! (Easy) The problem was the solenoid wires were corroded / had a bad connection causing the foam brush not to work. Which in turn caused me to get a foam brush stolen!
Looks like my solenoid is having a little problem. I guess that is why the equipment room floor was all wet?
I hooked up my foam brush weep system today. The check valve at the far end is used as a plug because I did not have one with my today.
I just attached the foam brush weep to one of the pumps weep lines for now, but I will need to purchase some parts and mount it better later. The last picture shows the weep solenoid on the far left which is where I will be mounting the weep line.
Who would guess that if you leave a pumping unit unused (for 2 1/2 years) a solenoid might get clogged up. Actually, I only had one clogged solenoid which had a clump of dried up chemical clogging the spring.
