  • Grimac Mia Restore/Rebuild - “Greta”

    So whatwas going to be a day in jammies till when ever i got to garage turned into a mad dash across Sydney, to go meet two vry nice people, an their awesome doggo,
    I now have a Grimac to play with,
    On filling tank an powering up the boilers boiling but I think there maybe oscillating pump issue, its loud as hell then stops with an error beeping sound and on the front pad h what I think is watericon is flashing,
    So after a quick milan photoshoot an testing of that awesome green purple polish, thamls Dimal!!!
    Greta as she has been codenamed, will need her clothes removed and pump looked at.

    Inital pics and man that polish works soooooo well!!

          Good solid machines. There's a water flow issue, first try priming the pump. Use a syringe or blow into the tube that feeds water to the pump to try and introduce some water to it. That may be all it needs to start working again.

          I'd also love to know who applied teflon tape to every flared fitting visible on the machine. Clearly a fundamental lack of understanding. Tread carefully with the rest of it, who knows what else they've done.

                  That new pump will be a direct swap for the old one

                    but am happy so far!

                        Amen to that.



                        Amen is basically Hebrew for "Ain't that the truth".
