Hi guys I got my Cab King 4" about 5 months ago and LOVE it.  I am having a problem though. My water dripping system on some of the wheels is not dripping anymore.  Can I run a cleaning solution like CLR through the pump to try to clean up any clogs etc.

Any help would definitely be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Mike,
Cab King makes a 6" and an 8" unit. Not sure about a 4"   I would suggest pulling the tubing off the valves that are not working and blowing them out or cleaning them manually rather than introducing a caustic like clr into the system.
Be very diligent with your water supply. The only time I have had a clog in my system is when I allowed some kind of funk to get into the pump.
The system has not had a problem in over a year now with my 8" unit and my guess is you got some crud up the tube that is messing with you.
Hope this helps...
Bill
ps. I do not know what your water is like. Here in Western Oregon we have no trouble with hard water or calcification.The post assumes your have water that is not itself the problem!

Hi.  I just had that happen on mine - it turned out that the nozzle was blocked, and also that the knob wasn't tight enough so it was rotating on the spindle (it's just a set screw).  So try tightening the set screw in the side of the knob too.
