Our rebuild diaphragm kits are simple to install. Refer to our
trouble shooting section for directions on proper replacement procedure.
Tools you will need:
- 1 medium phillips screwdriver
- 1 small phillips screwdriver
- 1 medium pair of pliers
Note: If your diaphragms are blowing out frequently, you most likely
have an excess back pressure problem in your design. Check that your
air delivery tube is large diameter and no kinking is occuring. Check
your air diffusers for clogging. Ceramic style air stones need cleaning
with muriatic acid every 3 months typically. Check that the number of
air diffusers is sufficient to handle the air output of your Hakko
pump. Too few diffusers will create excess back pressure. Read the
