    Hi Guys

    my skimmer just stopped working. it has a AquaBee 2000 pump. Can these be repaired or will it need to be replaced. where can i get these from?

    thanks.

    have you opened the pump up? is the impellor moving freely as in can it still rotate?

    i would suggest removing the skimmer from the display and testing away from water...

    Hi Leslie

    yes i have . The impeller does rotate but not freely. it feels like magnetic tension.
    i have removed it and tested elsewhere as well. no sign of life.
