View Full Version : Litermeter remote pump tubing generation?

01/27/2015, 07:40 PM
I have this pump, it has the metal pump head. What generation replacement tubing do I need? I also watched the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDX2bDTrwms that shows white thrust washers inside the pumphead. My pump does not have these washers, should it?

We have found that the thrust washers don't really provide any benefit to the proper and long-term operation of the pump. If your pump doesn't have them, you don't need them.

Is there any way to tell what generation tubing I need?

Disassemble the pump head and inspect the tubing. If there is a shiny plastic coating on the side of the tubing that faces the rollers, it's a Gen5. If not, it's a Gen4.

I would already assume that the part you are looking for lm3-tbn-kit. I could be wrong, but we have a reference on our litermeter page of our website. I would post a link, but I am out of the office and away from my computer.
