fixing da fish trap

5 posts in this topic

I have a fish trap II that is a few years old and am wondering about changing the conduit frame out for new conduit. The problem is the frame is a little out of shape and is hard to telescope back in and out. I was wondering if anyone has replaced the conduit, what size it was, or if any one had an easy fix to the solution... No jigmeister I am not gonna just go get a new one... Unless someone wants to buy a used trap II???

If no one has any ideas, how about a HSOforum to USL or a contact so I could get some specs on the conduit size to use.

EYE GUY:

I don't have the USL Web site handy. But on your Internet home page, just do a search with the terms USL and Fish and Trap. One of the hits will be on the USL page.

I don't know that they sell replacement aluminum poles for the Trap II (that what I have, too), which is several years old now. If they don't, you may be stuck buying a used Trap II for parts, just like buying an old broken-down car for parts.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
