FAQ

MY IMPELLER IS BROKEN OR OTHERWISE DAMAGED. WHY?

If you are using the pump strictly to agitate/recirculate your solution without a filter cartridge attached, you must install a Pump Strainer Adapter (PSA) to protect the Impeller from damage due to any foreign objects that might be in solution.

The Shaft and Impeller are spinning rapdily, and a collision with even a small object, if sucked into the pump, can cause the Impeller to break.

If the Impeller cracks or breaks even though you use a filter cartridge or Strainer, it is possible the Impeller material of construction is incompatible with the solution chemistry or temperature. See this link for material selection guidelines.

Incompatible solution chemistry or temperature may also cause the Impeller threads to soften and become stripped.
