There are a few options available for water hook-up to your new Covington Sander. The two most common are the 2-Gallon Pressure Tank, which provides water to the belt with only a few pumps of pressure, or the water pump, which provides constant water to the belt.
Both methods are efficient and inexpensive. The Pressure Tank will hook right into your sander valve and must be tightened down sufficiently for the aluminum tubing to remain in the valve. Simply give the pressure tank a few pumps and the water will begin to spray onto the belt. You will occasionally have to pump the handle to keep pressure in the tank and keep the water flowing.
The water pump is a submersible unit that must be placed into a bucket of water. The pump has a quick-connect attachment for the ¼” plastic tubing. Simply press the tubing into the quick connect and it will stay in place. The other end of the tubing must be placed securely into the sander valve using a copper fitting with the tubing. This fitting prevents leaking. Once the tubing is connected, simply plug the pump into an outlet, make sure the valve is open and it will begin putting water onto your belt.
We also recommend purchasing a drain kit with your sander to eliminate dirty water as it accumulates in the pan. Simply remove the drain plug, attach the drain kit, and put the remaining tubing into a bucket. By removing the water from the pan, you prevent overflow, cross-contamination, and scratching of your pieces.
The full plumbing kit includes the pump and the drain kit, but not the pressure tank.
Replaced a 6" x 48" giant wet sander with this gem.
I used a commercial 6" x 48" wet sander for years. It would roar to life and give you a shower at the same time. It did a fine job on large pieces of glass but was difficult to control on smaller applications. The Covington sander sounds like a sewing machine. All controls are up front and respond with minor adjustments . The metal castings and fabricated parts are deburred and have a great finish. I could not be happier with this machine and highly recommend . Mike
