The transducer is the heart of your ultrasonic. There may be 1, 2, 4
or more depending on the size of the tank. They certainly can be
replaced – but you should have a professional repair person or the
manufacturer do the repair. My understanding is that they should
be replaced in pairs, and that a special adhesive is used to hold
You can send your ultrasonic in for repair to the supplier you bought
it from… or call the manufacturer and ask them where to send it for
repair. Ask for an estimate before the repair is done. But be aware
that even if you decide not to get the repair done there is sometimes
an inspection fee and of course, you will be charged for shipping.
Maintaining the ultrasonic simply means not leaving the heater on
overnite, not using harsh chemicals in it, not letting the water
evaporate more than 1" to and 1-1/2" below full. Also dont devest it
in - as the investment causes problems when allowed to accumulate on
the floor of the tank. In fact, don’t allow jewelry items or dirt
or investment or metal particles to sit on the floor of the tank.
The transducers have to work awfully hard to cavitate through that
solid. Also the vibration of that solid material on the tank floor
wears out the tank and can even put pits in it over time.
Hope that helps.
