Is it time to replace your Roller Pump?

Posted by Marketing Manager on Fri, Jan 10, 2014

Is it time to replace your Roller Pump?

We receive a lot of calls from customers who want to repair their broken or damaged Roller Pump. Here are some things to consider:
  • Before buying and installing a repair kit for your Roller Pump, be sure that the housing of the pump is in good condition. 
  • If the housing of the pump is worn, new rollers won't be able to create enough pressure to move water through the pump. While you can purchase the pump housing as a replacement part, it is often more cost effective to buy a brand new pump.  
  • If you're not sure, take the pump apart, and send a picture to one of our Customer Service Technicians for help.
