For a copy of the PUMP
little pumps are almost maintenance-free. They are hard to overheat
as long as they are kept submerged, and can run for years without
failure -- IF they are kept clean. Two things will kill them; one
can be repaired, one can’t. The first situation is pretty common –
a small piece of mulch or twig gets past the prefilter and jams the
impeller. When the flow stops, most folks’ first impulse is to
unplug and re-plug the pump, to free the impeller, but this can
backfire and snap the ceramic shaft that the impeller spins on.
Luckily, the shaft, impeller and magnet assembly can usually be
replaced at a modest cost.
Tip #2 When
flow stops, unplug the pump, check for blockage and make sure the
impeller can spin freely BEFORE plugging the pump back in. Use a
pencil or screwdriver to rotate the impeller one full turn. If it
doesn’t turn freely, remove the impeller housing, find the debris
and remove it. This goes for all pumps.
The second situation that’s
especially damaging to Mag Drives is to have the pump sitting
directly in the pond, down in silt or sediment. Constantly pumping
abrasive grit can wear the bushings that the impeller shaft rides
in. Once worn, the shaft will start to wobble and the Mag will
start to fail. Usually, the bushings are difficult or impossible to
replace, so that’s it for the pump.
Tip #3 Either
mount the pump in a skimmer, or keep any pump that’s sitting in a
pond a few inches off the bottom, on a flat stone, to keep abrasive
sand out of the pump.
