    Dryer takes long time to dry

    I use the brush/rod tools also, and even disconnect the dryer from the vent and use a leaf blower to blow all the lint out. Works great !

    Ice Maker Issue

    Thanks, Sparky. Evidently That 15 minute defrost worked, because when I returned home after a couple of hours, I had new ice in the bin. This fridge is 10 years old, and has been trouble free. Typically, how long do you need to defrost it ?

    what type of electric pump will we need?

    I own this one and it works just fine . It can pump 790 gallons per hour with a discharge height of 10 feet. 950 gallons at 0 . It is 1/6 hp and has a garden hose connection. Although I bought this at Ace, you can probably find a similar on for less . < Back / Plumbing / Pumps and Pump Parts...
