Default HF tile/brick saw, pump in external reservoir

I've read the suggestion of putting the pump in an external bucket to keep it from clogging up with brick dust/clay. I'm confused how the water system remains "closed" in this configuration. All the water is transferred from the external bucket to the saw's water-tray, but then never back to the bucket again. How does this work?

Thanks.

Hey Keb,
Adding the bucket your just using fresh water, not a closed system anymore.... you refill the 5 gal bucket with fresh water as needed and the tile saw just overflows/drains onto the ground..

Cheers

So don't use it in the basement then. I'll come up with something, maybe notch the tray so it overflows at a single point, then put a bucket under it on the ground.

Whatever...just wondering how it works. I have a picture now.

Thanks.

You can have a steady stream of new water going into the bucket with a hose, if you want to....

That's how I did mine, unless I was just doing a couple quick cuts. Worked really well.

I kept the plug in the tray so that it captured all of the saw residue. I just scooped it out periodically. I now have a five gallon bucket full of fire clay to use when I build another one.

A wet saw indoors gets a bit messy, even if you recirculate the water in the tray you still have to contend with the spray going all over. The closest I have come to indoor use is my attached garage (cars pulled out in the driveway of course).

If it doesn't have a plug, tilt it back and to the side just a little so that the water runs out of the corner into the bucket. The pumps don't really clog anyway so long as you freshen the water occasionally.

As an FYI, I save all of the brick dust for a gauging and colorant material. Who can guess what this is:

Yeah, it has a plug, I forgot. I only just put it together last night. I haven't even turned it on yet.

Thanks.
