How to Use a Vacuum Pump

  • Ensure the Vacuum Pump is filled with oil to the level indicated on the oil sight glass before operating the pump
  • Regular oil changes will ensure best vacuum and a prolonged pump life
  • Ensure the Vacuum Pump is in the “off” position before being plugged in to an adequate power source
