    I think we have them at the shop. Give Luis a shout, they are the same as the 2000lph for Aquamedic.

    Which impeller type does yours have. Is it the impeller that runs on a ceramic shaft that fits into rubber bushes. Or is it the one that has the shaft fixed to the impeller and runs in ceramic bushes.

    There were many problems with the first type of impeller setup. The stator that holds the rubber bush wares, causing the impeller to rub up against the stator and expose the coil. If yours has not worn to much it can be fixed with a little pratley's. If you bring the motor tomorrow night i will see if i can sort it for you.

    Hi Nemo's - mine has the shaft fixed (ceramic shaft). The pinwheel itself cracked in half on both my pumps' impellers.

    JB i have not come across that issue on the deltec ones. I checked with Steven at Exotic and he tells me that he had one Deltec impeller do what you say. Deletcs response to the failure was that the do that if when cleaned the impeller is not replaced gently or the impeller is not inserted in the bottom bearing correctly. Sounds like an excuse to me, but i am not sure. Go onto the deltec site. There is a lot of info on the Aquabee pumps and also check out the FAQ. Search pin wheel or impeller wheel.

    Here are the two different pumps i was refering to.
