Arrived at location on 7/20/21 - spoke with Viktor about issues with unit. First issue was the large discharge pump in back of unit was leaking at the flange. Viktor was not very concerned about the constant drip there. Second leak was very heavy coming from half way up the back of unit at the lower spray arm. Viktor wanted this fixed. Called Danny from manufacturer and he recommended disconnecting and pulling unit out and replacing the gaskets. This would require major tear down of plumbing and ventilation of unit and equipment to move out the large machine. I took many pictures of unit from different angles. For short term repair I removed nut from spray arm and put silicone around it then tightened nut back up. Recommended they follow manufacturer guidelines to let the silicone set up but that will take 24 hours of downtime. Viktor would like to wait and see if unit leaks now after repair and will call if he wants further service. Unit is back in service when it cures.
