Welcome Wil. As stated you will get it at Camp World or even Outdoor Warehouse. Little bit of advice is to NOT secure the pump directly against the floorboard or chassis of your caravan. The pump will how ever work perfectly if you do that, the sound the pump makes when you open the tap is amplified by the wood or the steel.

Take some kind of packing material enclose the pump in that and then secure that against what ever you have to. You will be surprized how quiet the pump actually runs.

Just remember that there is a small plastic ball after the pump on the tap side of the pump. This acts as a non return and prevent the geyser from running dry if you have a dumpvalve on the tank.

Ek het gaan vra by camp world vir n pomp wat meer volume deurstoot. Dit sal help vir die stort, wat maar bietjie stadig is. Ek het hom nog nie gekry nie. Sal laat weet hoe werk hy.

Soren. No the pump in the nose of the Penta does not have this non return. The non return are only to ensure that the geysers in certain caravan does not run dry if you were to drain the water in the tank.

Kurt die hoe druk pomp wat by Camp World verkoop word sal verseker in jou Exclusive werk. Die verskil is net meer water per min. Huidiglik neem dit myself of my vrou ongeveer 20 liter water om te stort in die Classique. Dis nou gemeet by die "drain" van die stort.

Die Classique wat 'n maat van my by Willem hier op die forum gekoop het, het so hoe druk pomp op. En hulle gebruik heelwat meer per persoon omrede die water baie viniger vloei.

Onthou jy het maar net 60 liter in tank en 20 liter in Geyser. So gou soos nou dan is dit leeg.

Al rede hoekom ek dit noem is dat ek probeer om boorgat water in die Geyser sover moontlik te beperk. Dit het gewoonlik baie natuurlike kalk in en dit pak aan in die Geyser. Hoekom se ek so? Want jy moet sien hoe lyk my warm water Urn aan die binne kant van die kalk.

Moes reeds die Urn met assyn skoon maak na die laaste kamp.

Leon, ek het my watertenk verander sodat hy permanent vol bly. Lees die artikel"moeg om watertent vol te maak" Daar is fotos daarby. Dit werk baie goed. Ek hoor wat jy se van die water deur die geyser, maar dit is baie gemaklik.

Leon, my Penta has a Geyser under the bed. The new Pentas come with a geyser, for the tap inside and outside.

Soren then it is likely that you will also have that non return ball. Its possible that the non return patent has been improved since 2011 when I bought my Classique.

Main thing is do not let the pump run dry. If it does it no damage only some hassle to get the water flowing freely again when the pump is activated.

Too late, I think I let the geyser empty as much as possible and no water in the drum. Oh well sports for me.

Sover ek weet kan mens nie die geyser laat leeg loop nie. As dit moontlik is, onhou net om dit af te skakel by die skakelbord "DB".
Anders brand mens die element as jy die krag koppel en daar is nog nie water in nie.

Kurt in the manual supplied by Jurgens for the geyser there is a few steps to follow that will allow you to drain the geyser. As you mentioned do not drain the geyser unless the heating function has been switched of.

Soren, I think the problem does not lie with the geyser it is with the pump. The moment the pump runs dry and you then add water in the tank there is a air bubble in the hose leading to the pump. The moment you swithch on the pump the bubble just stays there as the pump does not have the capability to pump air. Thus the water before the pump stay where it is and the water there after as well.

The moment you disconnect the hose on the geyser side of the pump the water in the tank pushes the air out until it reaches the pump and there everything will run like normal.

Thus no problem if there is no water in the geyser as long as there is water upto and in the pump.

This is just how I experienced it.

Dankie Leon. Ek wil graag die geyser laat leegloop, vir een of ander rede het die water n slegte reuk. Ek het nie die "manuel" saam gekry nie(tweedehands gekoop). Ek sal bietjie rondvra vir een.

 Hallo Will

Ek het n pomp gesoek vir my Exclusive. 1 gekry by Comet caravans in Boksburg. Ek het gister met Franceua 0832646884 gepraat en die R1299 oorbetaal. Dawn wing het die pakkie vanoggend in Nelspruit afgelewer vir R170. Die selfde pomp kos R2400 hier.

Moet se, baie goeie diens by Franceua(Francois) gekry.

Kurt die Classique wat my maat gekoop het se Geyser water het ook so 'n slegte reuk gehad. Hy het toe net 'n derde bottle "Milton" in sy tank gegooi. Die kraan tenvolle oop gedraai dat die water deur die geyser en warmwater pype vloei totdat hy die milton chloor reuk kon ruik by die water wat uit die kraan kom. Die water so in die geyser en pype gelos vir 'n dag. Net die tenk gedreineer en toe vars water ingegooi en toe op dieselfde manier die water deur gepomp totdat die milton reuk minder was. So het hy die slegte reuk maklik uit die geyser en pype gehaal. Die water daarna het steeds 'n sterk milton reuk gehad totdat die stelsel goed gespoel was.

Onthou ook die volgende. En die het ekself ondervind. Moenie dat die tank en geyser lank met Milton water in staan nie. Die water vrot vinniger as net die gewooone kraan water waarom weet ek nie.

Ek het in die eerste jaar wat ek die Classique gehad het die vrot water reuk gekry en die proses hier bo gevolg om dit uit te kry.

Daarna net die water in die geyser gelos en die tenk eerder leeg gestoor en net volgemaak voor vertrek na 'n kamp.

Nooit weer slegte water reuk gehad nie.

Hi guys!

Thank you so much for all your advice on the water pump..
We have been away and I only managed to get back to my pump story now.
I will definitely get the pump myself and keep you updated.
If anyone needs a two night sleepover in Graskop, Mpumalanga, let me know.
We have a place there.

If I am right, do you have a X5?
I have towed with many vehicles before, then sold caravan.
I bought a lovely Jeep Grand Cherokee, 5.7 hemi, but will never dare to tow with it, unless it is a petrol tanker hooked behind!
Anyway, i added a very well looked after BMW X 5 3 diesel to my stable and cant wait to hook it up after fixing the water pump.

Greetings
Wil

Will, Jy is reg oor die X5. Ek probeer hom verkoop voor die nuwe een kom oor so 10 dae. Die inruil waarde is nie goed nie, so ek probeer hom uit die hand verkoop. Dis n wonderlike kar om mee te sleep. As ek sleep kry ek omtrent 6.2km per liter. Nie lig nie maar ook nie swaar nie.

Wat se jaar model is jou kar?

Ek is seker jy gaan hom baie geniet.

Dis 'n 2010 model . Die voertuig voel baie meer padvas as die Cherokee, so sal die verskil voel as ek die Exclusive sleep.

Wil vir wat dit werd is ek plaas 'n groot skottel onder die karavaan indien daar nie 'n blom bedding naby is nie. En maak dit dan telkens leeg as iemand klaar gestort en was het. Die skottel akomodeer ongeveer 20liter water en dit is normaal weg wat ons per persoon gebruik tydens 'n stort sessie. Die water gooi ek uit op 'n naby stowerige pad want daar is gereeld mede kampeerders wat jaag in die oorde of erens in 'n blomtuin of teen 'n boom.

Indien daar 'n blom tuin naby is maak ek gebruik van 4 x Kreepy Crawly pype om die water soontoe te lei.

Dis maar my manier om die grys water te bestuur. Want as dit net daar uitloop is dit dalk op die plek waar 'n kampeerder na my sy tent wil opslaan. Dis onwaarskeinlik dat hy die tent in die blom bedding opslaan. Baie plekke veral noord van Pretoria glo ek is die plante dankbaar vir die bietjie water.

(Seker nie na die laaste paar dae nie maar ja)

Leon jy het gevra van die X5. Jy het seker net nie Wil se vraag raak gelees oor die X5 nie. Toe antw ek net. 

Wil, ek koppel n tuinslang aan my uitlaat om die water weg te ly.

Ek gebruik een van my ou plastiek boot petrol tenke en vang die water daarin op.  Stoor 30liter en gooi dit dan uit by die plante in die park.
