BABY BLAKE FAQ's
Q Discharge pump stiff to operate
A This is most often due to the bucket washers (part 51) being oversize, expanding or drying-out, when not used for a period. When new washers are supplied the tolerance is oversize to allow for any wear on the cylinder of older toilets. If the toilet is not used for a while or if oil is taken into the pump it can cause the washers to expand. All of these reasons mean the frictional resistance between the washer and the side of the cylinder is too great making it very difficult to pump. In all cases it will be necessary to take the piston assembly out of the pump and take a skim off of the outer circumference of the washers using emery paper or a file. When fitting new washers they should be tested to see the pump will work freely before everything is re-assembled. The washers barely need to touch the side of the cylinder, and there should be an easy movement on the pump when operated. Do not over tighten the piston locking ring when re assembling.
Q Top Gland of pump/s leaks
A Inlet/discharge water passing gland seal - Replace "O" ring and/or re-pack with gland packing. Piston rod worn - Replace. Gland nuts and/or pump tops worn - Replace.
Q Flushing pump loses prime
A Bucket washer worn - Replace. Lower valve worn - Replace.
Note - (To re-prime, apply 10/12 VERY RAPID strokes of handle or remove nut on connection between wheel control valve & flush pump and manually fill to prime).
Q Bowl backfills with water
A Could be filling from discharge side due to faulty lower "clack valve" - Try to free and re-seat, if this does not work, replace. Safety wheel control valve not seating correctly - Replace.
Q Scale build-up in pump/discharge pipe.
A Caused by chemical reaction with minerals in water - clear from pipe work by removing cylinder and soak in 50/50 caustic soda solution.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle. You will have to find a local source to replace this bottle for the lifejacket to function. We cannot send re-arm kits overseas.
We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
