AMS Assembly Instructions

System assembly Instructions

Normally, all system components, Nozzles, Fittings, and Accessories can be shipped within the 55 gallon drum. Once you receive your shipment carefully unpack its contents, checking all boxes for addition parts, then compare it to the packing list. Please report any discrepancies within 5 days of receipt.

The System is packaged into two boxes for its protection during shipment: the Above-Drum Assembly and the In-Drum Assembly.  

The Above-Drum Assembly consists of the Control Box, Motor, Pump and associated fittings and Optional Agitator.  These are bolted to an Aluminum mounting plate and are prewired. The assembly is mounted on the lid of the drum.

The In-Drum Assembly consists of the float switch, 3/8″  intake tube, intake filter, and optional 1/4″ agitation tubing, mounted in 3/4″ white PVC tubing.  It is screwed into the drum lid and lowered inside the drum.       

Here’s how to assemble it in 3 easy steps               

1.) Place the Above-Drum Assembly on the Drum lid so the pump intake fitting is directly over the 3/4″ threaded hole. Align the 4 holes in the mounting plate with the 4 holes drilled in the lid. Using the bolts, washers and nuts provided, attach the mounting plate to the lid, and tighten.

2.) Carefully turn over the lid and place the In-Drum Assembly wires and tubing through the 3/4″ threaded hole, then thread the PVC fitting into the hole. Attach the filter to the 3/8″ tubing by pressing firmly until the fitting “clicks” into place .

3.) Now turn the lid upright and place it on the drum so the In-Drum assembly is inside the drum. Connect the float switch wires to the grey connector on the control box – lift the three orange tabs on the connector and insert the float switch wires as follows: Black to Black, Red to Red, White to White, push the orange tabs down to secure the wires. Connect the 3/8″ intake tubing to the intake on the pump inserting it until “clicks” into place. Connect the 12″ long piece of 1/4″ tubing to the needle valve and insert the opposite end into the hole in the drum.  If ordered with an agitator, connect the  1/4″ tubing to the agitator’s output.
