    Ok I got a friend whos offered me a unit thats missing some parts so was wondering what im missing to put it together. So heres the list of what i got any help on anything that Im missing would be appreciated.

    Albany pump
    90gal tank (metal)
    100 feet of hose
    wand with tip
    honda 5.5 engine

    I know i need a pressure relief valve and a reel for the hose, not sure where I can get a good relief valve, TSC?, princess auto?. Im in Canada so will be using black mac, no acrylic or sand ect.

    Both those places should have a pressure relief valve, and you also should get a Y-Strainer. There's pic's of these is the not so old posts. I would tee a Pressure Gage in there too, helps to see what pressure your running at.

    First few things that come to mind is Y Strainer and shut off valve also check for a small strainer at the tip. There is also weed whacker, blower, caution tape, oil spot primer, shovel, broom.

    ohhhhhh and a hot chick to go house to house for you.:cool2:

    Only if it's a model 3g,5g,or 10g. The 18g & 25g required 5hp, and the 35g should have 7.5 hp
    Model number is the rating, in US gallons per min @ 1750 RPM. Max Diff Pressure will be 250 psi

    The Y Strainer is definitly a good idea and as for the pressure relief valve protect asphalt in Cobourg sells and ships them as well...
