  • Kaivac Pump options

    Question: We are replacing a pump in one of our Kaivac machines. I believe the parts we need are:
    Pumptec: M9253F Motor Only Replaces the Old M53 Short Base for Kaivac Machines
    http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-m...s-p-13032.html
    Pumptec: 217V Pump Head Only 60063 (Side Ports)
    http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-2...ts-p-5195.html
    My big concern is how does the pump head accommodate the kaivac attachments? The current pump we have has the attachments on the bottom. Are they located in a different area on this model? (I can send pictures if needed)
    Also, do you carry any of the trigger guns that would be compatible with the kaivac machine? The current one we use is made by kaivac and allows us to spray chemicals when we pull the nozzle forward and when the nozzle is pulled back the chemicals turn off. (hope you know what I'm talking about. Its called the kaivac trigger gun green dot) Anyhow, they break quite often and we need to keep replacing the nozzle which is costing us a fortune.
    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    Answer: The Kaivac machine uses ports on the front or rear of the pump and not the side of the pump

    The 205v 8 port head will fit the M9253F motor as well.
    Please note the ports are 3/8" Fip and the Kaivac uses 1/4" Fip.
    You just need to install a 3/8" Mip X 1/4" Fip Reducing bushing to make the connections smaller.

    You also need a cam bearing between the head and the motor

    Pumptec has an agreement not to sell the OEM Kaivac head to any other people to keep the price up (about double).
    I have not seen the inside of the Kaivac but do know that the side port 217v head will not work because the mount the pump head against the body.
    These alternative parts should work fine for the Pumptec 217V, 207V and 205V heads all use the same motors and are the same size but this new pump motor is a little longer.
    Off hand, I do not know what this is but might be able to save you some money if you want me to try. Please email me a photo of the trigger issue with measurements and any markings.
    The ports that are not used are just capped off.

    So I'm going to order the motor and pump tomorrow. Before I do so, could you first list quantity and part #s so I make sure I do order the correct parts?
    Lastly, would the 6 port pump, #60033, work as well?
    Thank you for your help and I look forward to doing business with you.

      I will be ordering the pump and motor tomorrow.
      Could you please list the parts and quantity of what I need? I want to make sure I do it right the first time.
      Second, would pump 60033 work? The 6 port?
      Thank you for your help and I look forward to doing business with you.

        Pumptec 60065 500 psi pump head

        You might be able to even use a Pumptec 60065 head.
        http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-2...65-p-5194.html
        I mention this because all 4 ports face back towards the pump motor. I think this is how you machine is now. You will need to confirm since I have never seen your pump. These 4 ports are all 3/8" pipe and not 1/4" that are common on your machine. You can add reducer bushings
        http://www.steam-brite.com/brass-bus...8-p-12872.html
        The ports are two inbound and two pressure side. Just cap off any you do not need
        We have swivel connections too at
        http://www.steam-brite.com/steel-swi...9-p-15317.html
        I cannot really 'pick' a pump head for you because if it does not work for you, you will still be subject to our return policy. Here is what I mean... For what ever reason it does not work or is not as easy to use, you cannot say, "the guy on the phone (or message board) told me this would work in my machine..., now I need you to make it right." Our response it you had all the options and you chose the pump head not SteamBrite. I cannot sell you a Kaivac pump head but can offer pumps that cost half as much.
        If your hoses are on the same side as you motor, the 60065 will work. If your hoses are on the side of the head, they you will need an 8 port head and cap off the 4 or more ports you are not using.
        The pumptec 60034 is an 8 port head pump
        http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-2...s-p-10393.html
        Cap off the port you are not using.
        http://www.steam-brite.com/brass-plu...b-p-15296.html
        All these pump head can be un-bolted, rotated 180 degrees, and bolted back on again. This will change/swap the "in" and "out" position.

            Kaivac Pump Options

            So I was playing around the machine and it looks like there is no wiggle room on the size of the pump. The only one that I believe will fit is 60063.
            I'm hoping if I order that I can either, take the manifold off the one we are currently using and bolt it on to that one, or I can find someone to tap the manifold on the new one and just put the adapters on that way.
            If you haven't seen the photos I sent you of the pump, they seem to be identical to 60063, but they have ports tapped on the front of it.
            I don't believe the other pumps would fit. There is only about 3/4" wiggle room on how the pump and motor currently sit in the black box.
            Any thoughts on that?
            Sorry to be so annoying, I just want to make sure when I order this, I order the proper parts or I will have an upset boss.
            I really do appreciate all your information.
            Thanks,
            Bill

              Kaivac pressure water pump alternative

              If your machine is 500 psi I know that the Pumptec 60034 pump will work as long as there is room in the machine. The 205v head is about 1" wider than the 217v head.
              http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-2...s-p-10393.html
              All the 500 psi head will bolt onto each others motors.
              You need the water in and out to come through the front and this model has this option. Here is what you cannot see in the photo there is a channel of water that shares the top two holes and shares the bottom two holes. You just need to purchase the 60034 pump and purchase six plugs to cap off the holes you are not going to use.
              The Pumptec 60063 would be too much trouble to drill and tap out the front panel.
              http://www.steam-brite.com/pumptec-2...ts-p-5195.html

              Both these pumps use the same repair kits and are similar in size.

                  So the new motor worked well on one of our machines, but unfortunately the pump did not fit. It's about 2 inches wider then the standard pump they use. So it doesn't fit the 500psi 1750 machine, but from research it may fit the 2150 500psi machine. (Just for future reference) I was wondering is it possible to return the PumpTec: 205V Pump Head Only (8Port) 500 Psi for another Pumptec: M9253F Motor and Pumptec: Repair Kit "C" Cam Bearing?
                  Please let me know how to approach the return. Pump head never used.

                  Thanks,
                  Bill

                      Is it okay that its a few days over the 30?
                      Also do I have to email anyone to be expecting the return?
                      And will the store credit be available once item is received on your side?
                      I'll get it shipped back to you today or tomorrow.
                      Thanks,
                      Bill

                        returning parts

                        All you have to do include a copy of your invoice with the item. Please write on the invoice these reason for the return. Example "wrong size, please supply me part number... instead."
                        Or supply a comment if you want to return for store credit if you are not ready to make a purchase at this time.
                        Please make sure you keep a copy of the tracking number and package the item(s) so it is impossible for the shipping company to damage it for I will not be able to supply any credit for damaged goods.

                          The pump head has the ports on the side but these pump heads come apart.
                          You can re-use the faceplate on the original pump head to make your water ports forward facing!
