Silca releases urgent service bulletin on SuperPista floor pump gauges

By Stephen Frothingham

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (BRAIN) — Silca has released a service bulletin about its SuperPista floor pumps, advising owner to remove the pump’s gauge lens temporarily to avoid danger.

The company said a problem with the gauge’s subcomponent can cause pressure to build up behind the lens, potentially causing the lens to burst. The company plans to send out replacement gauges in January but said in the meantime the pump is safe to use once the lens is removed. The company posted a video (below) showing how to remove the lens.

We’ve identified the cause of issue and have an interim solution in place that takes just a few seconds to complete. We’ve also developed a long-term solution in the form of a gauge replacement which we will be sending out by mail,” the company said in an email to SuperPista owners on Thursday.
