    Draco Solum Drum Error Codes List

    Anyone have a list of Error Codes for a Draco Drum?
    For context:

    I bought a drum 2nd hand, it is now all up and running now and the pond water clarity is amazing. It has thrown up a possible error code 7 (E7), which has now gone away and I was wondering what that was? I couldn't find them in the downloadable manual.

    For anyone interested:
    The previous time I looked at the control box it showed 98 minutes in between washes, the next time it said E7, so I wondered if I had gone over to triple digits hence the code? So I have pressed the manual wash button and the error has not returned.

    The pump currently is only a 5000 lph as it was cleaning to often whilst the pond cleared.
    I have a 16000lph pump I can put on the system now it has cleared.

    Draco confirmed that the display E7, was just a fluke. It doesn't correlate to any error code. Just random display on the old drums when it doesn't wash for over 99 minutes, as per John's experience.

    Funnily enough I went out to my pond last night to give the sturgeon a feed and had E5 displayed on the Draco control unit.

    I hit the manual spray button and it reset the counter and the drum worked. Fine. Looks like the time had reached triple digits. Phew!

    I half expected it to be the case but still puts a lump in your throat!

    Mine is now showing a weird code every time I go out to the pond. But the drum is definitely still working.

    At least it means I'm using less water, so not such a bad thing Draco Solum Drum Error Codes List

    What flow are you guys on? I'm gonna up mine to the 16000 again, now the ponds clear, but it's an OASE eco with seasonal mode, so under 10 degrees it will be half that, so about 8000 lph over winter

    I am on an airlift Al,so in the winter I use a lower watt air pump which is now 40 watt.

    It also does an air stone in the dirty side of the drum to keep the crud moving ( recommended ) and a few other airstones.
    So as they are now off feed the drum goes off over the hr now.

    I'm also on an airlift. But I just keep my 80lpm air pump running throughout as it also supplies my bio filter

    Tbh I don't know what flow rate I have, but suspect it's somewhere around 16k lph. But I could be way off on that.
