Steps the operator must take before Pumping or Drawing any volatile / combustible fluid
If you choose to pump or draw any type of flammable liquid do not use this pump or system around any flame or any type of electrical motor or devise that may cause a spark or static spark.
Always make sure the FLO-FAST pump and the container it is in, is placed on the ground before pumping or drawing any fluid.
Apply static wire clamp to the filler opening to reduce the risk of static.
Do not transfer any fuel with engine running, hot exhaust can ignite fuel.
Make sure the squeeze clamp is applied before transferring fluid. The squeeze clamp is to make sure the hose will stay in the filler opening.
Always keep the hose in contact with the filler opening. (After you have applied the squeeze clamp to the unit that you are pulling fluid from or pumping fluid into, the hose will stay in contact with the filler opening, therefore dissipating any static build up from the pump or system.)
If fuel is being transferred do not smoke or place the FLO-FAST pump or system by any type of flame.
Steps the operator must take when fluid transfer is complete
After a fluid transfer operation, carefully raise the line out of the fluid opening and let the fluid drain back into the system container. Do not set the hose down until all of the fluid has drained back into the container.
To eliminate any person from pumping fluid accidentally, DO NOT store the FLO-FAST pump in any type of portable jug. Always put the pump and system in a safe area where children / others do not have access to it.
Children must not use the FLO-FAST portable fluid transfer pump and system.
Do not transport the FLO-FAST pump while it is in the utility jugs.
After a fluid transfer operation, always remove FLO-FAST pump from container and place the cap on the utility jug.
Do not allow individuals under licensed age to use the FLO-FAST pump or system.
If you choose to use FLO-FAST with any type of volatile fluid like gasoline or methanol or any harmful chemical, do not inhale vapors.
If any component breaks on the FLO-FAST portable fluid transfer pump or system, do not use until you have replaced all of the broken components.
When filling containers at a gas station always place the container on the ground and never fill a container when it is in a trunk, in the bed of a truck, in a trailer, or on top of a vehicle. Do not overfill the container beyond manufacturer’s specified levels to allow for fluid expansion.
You can only use the FLO-FAST pump on industry standard large mouth jugs.
Do not use the FLO-FAST pump on any container that does not fit the FLO-FAST pump.
Part Numbers: 75001, 75002, 75003, 75004, 10501, 10502, 10503, 10504, 15501, 15502, 15503, 15504 Are designed for the FLO-FAST pump and come with a vent inserted into the container. When pumping or drawing fluid with the FLO-FAST pump, you must properly open the vent for a proper venting system. Pouring from these containers can be dangerous and is not recommended.
Do not store jugs outside or in the sunlight
If you are using the FLO-FAST pump with fluids that do not lubricate the FLO-FAST pump, over time you may have to prime the pump if you are trying to draw fluid with a dry pump.
You may need to prime the pump if you are trying to draw or suck fluid from more than 5 feet away. (Each pump comes with 5 feet of hose)
The 5 foot accessory extension is for pumping purposes.
If you are pumping or drawing at a rate more than 60 revolutions per minute you run the risk of over pressurizing the pump.
