Pump arrived today, but the CIP head still seems to be touring the countryside courtesy of Yodel

Well the good news is it all turned up and it fits.

Bad news, the pump is UTTER SHITE & doesn't pump every time you turn it on.
And the CIP ball is 3/4 bsp not 1/2 bsp.

AVOID https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2500L-H-Subm ... lVKpS3cJVA

It other good news the 150mm threaded SS pipe fits and is the right height.

Off to find a better pump (so tempting to attached CIP to the BM lid !)

Good luck with the pump hunt
I may look at a slightly bigger pump and make some longer feet so it sits above the element.

I am off to the KOI POND shop later. Looks promising.

Feet: You might find you run out of room. With the pump and the height of the sit ball. I only needed 150 mm of pipe to reach the top of the centre rod - which is where my trub line normally appears.

I am also looking at a 14 inch silver tray, to screw onto the centre rod - This **SHOULD** make sure I don't get Wash fountains! :shock:

Getting there. The pump seller on eBay is being an ass though. Defo avoid.

I was thinking about this
I have an idea to use the stainless hood with a stepped cap that I will 3D print at work.
The cap will need to have a cable access slot as well.
This will get rid of the need to add anything else into the mix.
As for height of the pump and CIP I will come direct out of pump outlet with a shorter pipe.
