I used them for the first year. The rollers get eaten up real fast. They do pump like crazy though.

Scot how long did they last you the first year. Were you going through set of rolers a month were they lasting longer.

This is the NEW Delavan roller pump with easy to replace rollers made out of stainless steel. What has happened on roller pumps is not just the rollers go bad, the chlorine eats the pumps inner chamber, clearances increases, pressure falls to Chit, and flow with it. Give it a try, wtf ?  Maybe this one will hold up ? They spray crazy good, WHEN they work. I like the idea of the easy to replace rollers! Plus it is solid stainless inside now, vs coated like before. The Delavan engineers may have finally solved the puzzle ?

It will have to be rinsed after every job, but it MAY work ? Why not call Delavan, and see if they will guarantee it, or buy it from some large place that will take it back when it dies, after you rinse the bleach out of it, and run some pine sol through it to hide the smell roof cleaning

They spray better than anything else I've tried. They just don't last. I'm not sure how much this new one runs, but if you've got the motor and system to run one of these and have $250 to burn, try it out and see how long it lasts. But don't change your whole system to accommodate one because it probably wont last.

With the application of power, different configurations of pumps came along. These include piston, impeller and roller pumps. A roller pump's operation is simple. These are very simple to operate and maintain, and as a result, are widely used in a variety of applications. It has many advantages like:

A)    Cost

B)    Adaptability

C)    Low RPM Requirement
