Cannot seal water leak from discharge fitting.
Bought Ozito CPP-802 Pressure Pump some 8 mths ago. Since installation have had to remove outlet pipe /fitting (PVC) about eight times in an attempt to seal PVC fitting to Pump - have used white teflon and yellow teflon(Gas) but still continues to leak. Ascertained it appears to leaking through or behind the female fitting fixed to the pump. Bunnings have now replaced the pump , but not with same model, instead have given me an Ozito CPPAS-800 but having read your reviews I think it best to take it back and get my money back - don't want to waste time in the future attempting to fixing a poor quality product.
Purchased in November 2018.
Leaked from the main outlet and eventually died
The pump itself worked surprisingly good, but whatever I did the main outlet constantly leaked. No matter how much seal tape I used - it leaked anyway. The outlet has the inner threaded metal insert. So this leak could be between this insert and the nozzle or between the insert and the plastic body of the pump. Finally I returned the first pump to Bunnings to swap it with another one. And it leaked again!
Eventually I bought the brass nozzle made for the gas purposes (I guess) and turned with the "EnduraSeal liquid threadseal" from Bunnings and...

Terrible Waste of time and money... Be Warned !
My own pool pump broke down and i was beside myself especially being a long weekend and hot.. I bought the Ozito PPW-800 and the instructions clearly say 40mm Pressure hose requiried.. Well that wasnt the case at all in actual FACT no pipe fitted the attachments that was stated even in the setting up paperwork... It wasted my time and money, i had the item for a whole 12 hrs and i took it back and told bunnings that no pipe fits this product even their plumbing staff were baffled..
Spending 50 hours still skim pressure is below normal range. Impossible to seal any connection properly due to poor quality nuts. Repeatedly adding sealing material nut broke and you cant find the same size in bunnings too. I have no idea what to do. possibly talk to bunnings to return.
Great value, we would definitely buy the Ozito PPW-800 again!
We brought the Ozito PPW-800 pump for our garden water tank (5,000 litres) around two years ago from Bunnings. We had no problems installing the pump after removing the old one. This will be our second tank pump since 2008. The Ozito PPW-800 runs smoothly with very little noise. When we brought the pump we had no choice of pumps at the Bunnings outlet in our area as they had none in stock, the one we did get was the display pump at the outlet and we were given a small discount. We were desperate for a pump at the time and we were assured that we could bring it back if there were any problems with the display pump. So far we are very please with our purchase.
Have had three house pumps in the last 20 years, This (No 4) is by far the most value for money with its three year warranty.. Plugged it in checked for leaks and it hasn't missed a beat. Runs complete household water supply without any problem. Way better than far more expensive pumps i have used in the past.
So far soooo good
Recently purchased this Ozito pump at Bunnings and so far working great. Super quiet pump with reasonable pressure. Comes with 3 year warranty which is pretty good. Used a quality treading tape and no leaks from treads. My previous pump purchased from ebay from the pump factory lasted a whole 3 mths before failed.
I think personally can't go wrong with this pump.
Leaks and doesn't last very long.
First the good about the pump: it pumps. It's quiet and does as the box suggests.
And now all the problems: the top outlet leaks, leading to the pump switching on frequently. I tried maybe 10 times to stop the leak with thread tape, and each attempt failed. I think it's a design fault. Eventually got it to stop leaking by applying loc-tite thread locking fluid.
The pump needs to be power cycled after a blackout. This can be irritating.
I purchased my pump in May 2017, and in June 2018 its failed. It no longer detects a pressure d...rop. I flush my toilet and... nothing happens. This product has a three year warranty but my concern is Bunnings will just replace instead of refund the product. I'll be pushing for a refund so I can buy something much better.
This Is typical of Ozito gear.
Bought a back up just in case ( Cpp-800) and yes had to change the old one over. Did all the correct installation processes and the pump runs when it doesn't have to. Most reviews on these people have had to take one back and should be given some voucher from Bunnings for having to return faulty gear. It is quite costly to return faulty equipment and it only proves to me that you are better off purchasing industrial stuff for rural properties. Also the law should be changed on returning faulty equipment otherwise the faulty manufacturers just keep producing faulty gear and the cycle continues again. Ozito won't get me back again! Absolute garbage!!!
I purchased one of these (Ozito PPW-800) pumps from Bunnings about two months ago, as an interim measure, until the arrival of my ONGA SMPH750. I too initially experienced some difficulty achieving a tight seal with the top outlet pipe (the inlet valve is made of solid brass - no issues there). After reading the second review in this forum, I purchased and applied some heavy duty thread tape (pink in colour) and it is now as tight as a drum; doesn't lead a drop. This pump is very quiet and convenient to operate; so much so, that I have elected ...not to bother replacing it with my new ONGA pump until next summer, as my demand for drawing tank water for my extensive garden is typically quite low during the Autumn months (albeit we are experiencing a very dry autumn - 2018), with typically zero requirement throughout the North/Central (Kilmore) Victorian winter. My only criticism is the pressure is only marginally better (if at all) than the town water supply.
Tempermental. Faulty. On off.
Bought this from Bunnings. Installed it. Kept shutting off. Checked for leaks found leaking out the top priming valve which is crazy that it needed to be so spanner tight. Sealed it with teflon. Still shutting off. Found a miniscule leak elsewhere so after applying new teflon to all threaded joints and re-glue to new PVC connections in lines which meant numerous trips to bunnings, numerous priming and draining to ensure no blockage; it still shut off! Last trip to Bunnings today and good riddance. What a time waster. My last pump (Bianco) endur...ed rain exposure, leaky connections and still worked even though treated poorly. This one not even out of the starting blocks. I heard staff at store say this brand shouldn't be on the shelf. If I hadn't heard this and hadn't read these reviews, I was about to waste another 10 months fiddling with an exchanged item that i felt was dodgy but I thought I must be missing something. I've no issue with Bunnings who gave me refund. Just the pump and the time and frustration it caused. I'm now so put off I'll go gravity fed for now.
Would be a good pump if it didn't leak......
I installed this pump on my bore because I wanted an automatic pump to run the garden taps and fill the toilet in the house. It certainly seems to do the job well in terms of being able to deliver water and saves me from having to run to the bore and turn it on / off every time I need water unlike the old pump it replaced. It also runs my sprinkler bar very well with excellent pressure.
Like many other people have reported it is pretty terrible in that it leaks around the outlet at the top of it. I read the instructions and used...the suggested thread tape supplied with it. It was fine for a few days, then it started playing up. The first thing I noticed was that it kept turning on and off for no good reason. So I went and had a look and the top of the pump was wet. The instructions said that connections must be tight (pretty obvious really) so I tightened the outlet more. It still leaked. So I pulled off the outlet to have a look and the thread tape had pretty much disintegrated. No thread tape generally leads to water leaks. So I put on some of my own tape. The leak almost sealed, then after a couple of days the leak stopped all together, accompanied by a bit of rust around the fitting now. And the random turning on / off has ceased as one would expect. I've never had this issue with other water pumps and am a little bit disappointed really. It appears that whatever thread is in the pump itself is of poor quality and does not seal correctly. It was only when I used thread tape of my own and copious amounts of it, plus a little rusting did it finally seal properly. The other annoying feature of this pump is the on button - why on earth it is considered necessary I'll never know. As others have reported, if the power goes out, one has to trudge out to the pump and turn it back on. My old Davies brand pump that feeds rainwater to the house does not need this sort of attention.
Yet to be convinced
I replaced a Grundfos pump that was installed when the house was built seven years ago with a PPW-800. it worked fine for a couple of days. It now runs continuously. I cannot find any obvious leaks and the system holds pressure when i turn the pump off??? I'll return it and try another one. I appears to be quieter than the previous one so that is a bonus.
3 pumps failed within 1week
1st pump installed but would not automatically turn on when down stream pressure dropped. Took it back to Bunnings and replaced with new. 2nd pump worked for 48 hours then lost all electrical power to the motor. Took it back and had it replaced for the 3rd. 3rd pump lasted 4 days but has now ceased, sounds like it's in the motor. Will be taking it back for my money back this time. I do not recommend NOTE only used for a washing machine. So the third one was only used for 4-5 loads of washing cycle.
Sadly bought from Bunnings. Pump installed by plumber, leaked, took it back and replaced it. Installed by different plumber, leaked again. Not impressed and would not recommend! I have had cheaper pumps and worked fine then burnt out after 5-7 years, but they never leaked like this one. It goes off of its own accord it leaks that much, and the cost of two plumbers also hurt. To me its a design flaw with the outlet pipe, cheap plastic.
Great household water pump
Positive: (don't forget a pre-pump filter), Prime it and away you go. Preset maximum pressure 60 psi, turns itself back on at about 20 psi. Has "out of Water" protection, so won't run dry. Easiest pump I have had to set up since moving onto the property in 1970.
Only negative is if the power goes off you need to push the reset button, to restart.
I certainly will buy another, when our other pump packs it in.
Annoying "Safety" Feature
I purchased this pump as the last one (cheap Chinese) failed on a Sunday morning and there's not much to choose from on a weekend. But the price seemed reasonable, came with a three year warranty and is Australian. Also, Bunnings had them on the shelf ready to go and its plumbing lined up with the failed pump.
The problem is that every time the power drops out I have to manually reset it. As we live at the end of a long rural HV line, power interruptions are fairly frequent especially in the middle of the night. I contacted Ozito to see if ...this was a normal operation for this pump or if I had a faulty unit. They advised me that it was normal and it was a safety feature. Over the years, my wife and I have relied on rainwater tanks and pressure pumps for household water at many locations but have never had to reset one before. I find it odd that none of the other pumps (at least six and mostly reputable brands) we've used have had this "safety feature". I suspect it is something that was overlooked in the design as most users of tank water would like us be supplied from a rural power line. These lines are rather prone to brief interruptions or auto-recloses. Ozito also advised that I could have an electrician adjust the controls but that would void the warranty so that is not really an option. Apart from the safety feature that requires me to risk falling over outside in the middle of the night while resetting it, the pump seems to be okay.

How do you drop the water pressure in a ppw-800 pump pressure keeps on blowing blue line fittings of pipe
my ozito pump still under warranty period but we did clean up and threw box and receipt away.,,The pump has just developed fault. Fault light flashing.If I turn GPO off and on ,it does not restart,if I leave GPO on and unplug the pump and plug back in ,it runs for about minute. if I leave tap running for a while ,it runs longer then cuts out again and fault light flashing.Anyone have any idea what problem is,,,?
I m not an expert but you may wish to check my reply some 6 mths ago, where I indicated the pump was leaking through the outlet housing. I returned under warranty and replaced with a Davey Pump SJ-35 - no problems with that,
What to do if the pump doesn’t cut off when not required.
Return the pump and replace with a better engineered pump.
