Ozito Constant Pressure Water pumpI've had to return two faulty Ozito pumps to Bunnings, which is inconvenient as I am 40 mins away from nearest store. Having said that Bunnings did replace my pumps without an issue. When the pressure pumps are working they are great!
Ozito 800W Water Pressure pumpJust installed my Ozito Pressure water pump 800W. Easy to follow instructions, I bought to replace a cheap chinese version which last 2.5 years so the 3 year warranty and cost of $209 is acceptable and if it has to be replaced in say 4 years then would only cost $1 per week for the unit. I was recommended to buy it by a chap who had worked for Bunnings before, is now with Sydney Tools and they didn't have a pump to compare with this model of pump, there's would have been $4/500. In his experience the Ozito pump is well worth the price and warranty Show details
Good valueThere is something of a story here. I purchased an Ozito CPPA5-800 from Bunnings after the existing 'Commercial Electric' CPP-800 pump stopped running after about 10 years of use ( pumping from dam into veggie garden, and later for house usage from tank). Except for a few small changes e.g brass regulator nut rather than a plastic one, this would appear to be the same pump. I was fairly happy, given that we had 10 years from the previous pump, and the new pump has a 3 year replacement guarantee. The earlier purchase followed a succession of muc... Read moreh more expensive Davey (3) and Onga (1) pumps that still had the usual issues such as regulator repair and/or internal water seal leakage after a few years of use. And when the pump is relatively expensive you do pay to have it repaired.. thus adding to the overall cost. So from my perspective the moral of the story is .. buy the cheaper Ozito pump (around $200), hopefully get 5 years use out of it (at least 3 is covered from the guarantee). And when it breaks, just buy another one, as these are good for average domestic use.
Installation of deviceHad trouble installing this machine. Poor design of base. No instructions on how to anchor this device. You would have to pull this device apart to be able to anchor it in the four places. We were able to anchor only on one side. If they splayed the feet of this thing past the body of the pump it would have been a five minute installation. Pump otherwise primed and worked as advertised. Time will tell if a good product but the 3 year warranty gives comfort.
Questions & Answers
Are the Ozito pumps inert poly? Is there any plastisers leaching into to potable drinking water?
I have no idea
I think they are aluminium
Not long installed one on our drinking water tank it appears to have some form of lubricant in the pump that’s made our drinking water taste and smell like poly/plastic, I swapped the creek water pres... Read moresure pump over tonight with the Ozito pump, the smell has gone in the drinking water but there is an after taste of poly! The shower/creek water now smells of “poly/plastic” and my hair feels like it has grease in it! So now I have to replace all the pressure side pipes on the drinking water system and will have to strip the ozito pump and clean what ever lubricant they have put in it! Cheers Bunnings/ ozito
Do you provide a replacement chip board in the event that the existing one gets damaged?
No odea, I am not a retailer
No chip provided, but had no problem exchanging pump when it broke at Bunnings Midland wa
Water tank ran empty after getting it filled water pump has no pressure filled pump with water , not sure if there is air in the line somewhere does anyone know how to fix ,
In principle the inlet pipe to the pump should be full of water with no air gaps. Assuming there is a non-return valve at the tank (needed if pumping up hill) and there is water in the tank to pump, I... Read more'd suggest turning off the electrical switch to the pump first, then disconnect the inlet pipe from the pump, then SLOWLY fill the pipe with water allowing any air to bubble out (or the water may work it's way through from the tank if gravity is working for you). Reconnect the pipe, unscrew the top cap on the pump and top it up with water, screw the top cap back down, make sure the outlet tap (if any) is open (so the pump will work unimpeded), turn the pump switch back on (and possibly press the reset button on the pump regulator to make it turn on). The pump should work for a while at least, but may then stop again due to some air gaps still being in the system. Repeat the top-up process a few more times if required and the pump SHOULD then work properly. This assumes that there are no ways that air can get into the inlet system, there are no outlet blockages, and the pump motor is ok. Found this on Youtube .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syHTMT9At6c. Note the red top cap. Hope that helps
No idea how to fix it
