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.
