10 Gallon per 100 Revolutions Rotary Action Fluid Transfer Hand Pump
I have a RP-10 hand pump. Does it self prime because I can’t seem to get any gas coming through. I can hand crank forever and nothing. And yes, I am cranking clockwise, which is the direction of the arrow on the pump.
Hello. Could you call our Product Support Team @800-835-0113 M-F 9 am- 5 pm CST?
They can ask you several questions to determine what is causing the issue and get you up and running.
performs as advertised, hopefully, this one won't suffer internal failure from corrosion, as the last one did
RP stands for Rotary Pump, not Reversible Pump. This has always been its name. The RP-10 has an integrated anti-siphon vent on top of the pump to prevent the pump from operating in reverse and backflowing potentially contaminated fuels back to the storage tank. It has included this feature since the introduction of the product.
There have been OEM applications over the years that have defeated the anti-siphon vent on the pump in order to put the product on applications where reverse flow was desired. This is not a modification that is recommend by GPI for common applications.
