Tom,

I don't think there's pressure there, it's before pump.

You should be able to just twist it open. You will loose some gas, so get rags to catch the spill. Also be sure to get o-ring out and reposition it correctly when installing.

I was wondering the same thing.

Valv - whats is your recommendation for cleaning the filter?

Thanks,

Usually they are stainless steel, regular carb cleaner should work fine. If it's plastic I would just blow some air to clean deposits and reinstall

I havent done anything with mine yet so I dont know this for sure, but I think you just replace it, I think the filter assy is sealed. Although I never tried to turn it off.

I thought that too and when I went to the marina to buy a new one the guy in service said just twist it off and clean it. I haven't tried it yet but today looks like a good day to do it.

a'ight - I was able to take a look tonight and it was very easy. First, disconnect the filter assembly from the bracket it is attached to - careful not to drop the nut. I did this so I could get a grip on the filter cup. Then I used a little muscle to unscrew the cup. If you are steady when unscrewing the cup you won't spill a drop of gas. I dumped the gas and found a couple small particles of junk in the bottom of the cup and blew it out. Then I went back and looked at the actual filter - it just pulls out(the filter looks to be paper). I checked it out and it looked clean but I blew it off anyway - be careful here - I had my compressor turned up full and gas went all over when I hit the filter with air. I turned down my compressor and hit the filter a few more times. Then I put it all back together and pumped the bulb a few times to fill the filter cup. Hope this helps.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
