I've had my Surge pulsator already quit on me once. I got it going, but I live in fear now and am amazed at how quickly it gets plugged up and I need to disassemble to clean. I have heard that the Interpuls, with an adapter needed to use it on the lid, is a good replacement. And the main reason is that it can be completely submerged to be cleaned and therefore there's not the issue with it getting plugged from moisture that gets past the check valve?
So, I am shopping for one. Parts Dept has one called the 62724 4 port pulsator, is this a knockoff? It's only $89. Other online stores have the Interpuls L80 for $120 and the LL90 (Long Life for heavier use it says) for $130 (no brainer for $10 extra dollars?).
Any advice on which one to get is appreciated!

I went from the Surge pulsator (what a pain in the neck) to the InterPuls LL90 about a year ago. Since switching, my new pulsator has never needed attention. Never. I've taken it apart a couple times, just to check it out, but it's worked like the day I got it, since the day I got it. ;D
You won't regret your decision to change over to the Interpuls. In fact, once you have it, you'll wonder why you didn't switch months ago.
I do not think you can submerge any pulsater I have the interpuls also but you have to have a c type lid for it, look under your pulsater and if the serial # starts with a c it is a c type or if it starts with an s it a s type, I had to by a new lid with mine got it from Hamby dairy Suzanne

Suzanne, I think you're right. I wouldn't put the pulsator body in water. It has a fiber air filter inside that would get wet and ruined, but I do take the adapter and the gasket off the pulsator and rinse them with the cleaning / sanitizing solution then let them air dry before the next milking.

mocha: I just was looking around for some answers when I came across this board and found it very informative. Our Jersey cow has a calf about a week ago and I am not getting much milk from her..a litre maybe. What can I do?
