FAQ

I AM UNABLE TO USE YOUR UNIVERSAL BRACKET TO MOUNT THE PUMP ON MY TANK. CAN YOU SUGGEST AN ALTERNATIVE?

The standard BX1200 (UNBK1) Universal Bracket can be used on tank mounting surfaces up to 1 inch thick (2.54 cm) and 4-3/4 inch wide (12 cm). The standard BX650 (UNBK650-1) Universal Bracket can be used on mounting surfaces up to 0.75 inch thick (1.9 cm) and 4-3/4" wide.

We also offer a larger Universal Bracket for these models. The UNBK650-3 for the BX650 and the UNBK3 for the BX1200 can be used on tank mounting surfaces up to 3 inches thick (7.62 cm) and 7-3/4 inches wide (19.68 cm).

The BX3000 and BX5000 also use the larger 3" bracket for mounting on surfaces up to 3 inches thick and 7-3/4 inches wide.

MOUNTING PUMP ON TANK WITHOUT BRACKET
In addition to simple clamps, some customers employ the following procedure to mount pumps on the tank without the Universal Bracket.

• Use two approximately 1-1/4-inch-long, 3/8-inch-diameter stainless-steel dowel screws. The dowel screws should be threaded only at one end and with no head at the other end.

• Drill two holes in the pump Motor Base just underneath the motor.

• Drill and tap two corresponding holes on the top of the tank flange.

• Use pliers to install the two dowel screws onto the tank flange.

• Mount the pump on the tank by aligning the holes on the Motor Base with the vertical dowel screws on the tank flange.

• When you want to change filter cartridges, just lift the pump straight up from the dowel screws.
