Submersible pump
« on: July 03, 2017, 05:41:44 PM »

Can anyone tell me a replacement for a crystalite ringleader submersible water pump.  Mine has finally bitten the dust.  I can't complain as I have used it on and off for 35 years.  Maybe it's time to rig up a bucket system rather than work from the tank.
Thanks
Steve

I have a 5gal bucket with a tile saw pump, plumbed with tubing to five machines.
Works great for me being I don't have water plumbed into my shop

 I use a pond pump from Home Depot to feed water to my Raytech 8" grinding machines. It is submersible and sits in a 5 gallon bucket with a return hose from the grinder drain. They are available in different sizes with different gph deliveries, should be one that works for you.

I use a pump out of a swamp cooler.  Stick it in a bucket of water up to the bottom of the motor and go to grinding/polishing etc.....

Change out a pump 6 times or buy one for a decade of use.

I needed a pump to spray SiC slurry for a rock drill and the base of the one I had from Grainger was broken.  In the catalog, I only saw pumps for hundreds of dollar, so I took it to show them.  Amazingly helpful and called higher up for info on a pump that was no longer made and not in catalogs.  Finally by comparing the 1/77 HP and other specs, they came up with a replacement that was $47, very comparable to what I had expected was about $35 four decades ago.  Extremely helpful personnel!

Thank you all.  I appreciate the different answers and ways to get this done.  A water pump is installed and running from one bucket to a draining bucket.
