THE POWER PRIMER PUMP, also known as a DC primer, electric primer, or primer with vacuum pump, is  built for fast and efficient priming in pump installations with high suction lifts or extra suction lines. The Protek POWER PRIMER is ideal for various uses as an irrigation pump and water extraction pump. Our motorized line of power primers come in AC, DC or gasoline models and work well for a variety of applications. They are ideal for large, diesel-powered irrigation pumps.

    4. Install hand valve between the power primer and the volute of the pump.
    5. To start priming, open priming line valve and turn primer on.
    6. Watch for water to appear in water trap.
    7. When water appears in trap, turn pump OFF and CLOSE priming line.
  • MAINTENANCE

    • Vacuum Pump requires occasional flushing. Remove pressure gauge and run 1/4 cup of flushing solvent (Gast AH 225 or equivalent) through pump.
    • Brief warm-up may be required for pump to produce a vacuum.
    • Perform initial inspection after 500 hours.
    • Use engine oil with viscosity of SAE10 when refilling oiler.
    • Clean or replace air filters as needed.
    • Keep water trap clear of debris.
