Wish I were near, have a 1800lph that's almost new I would've given you! If you know of a lift from Kby just shout, could otherwise courier it, just dont have time to organise everything, but if you willing to organise it I will be happy to send it!

G I have an extra one you can borrow till you come right.. Got it in the box of crap from Likesfish. I think everything is there we need (I hope). it's a 5800l/h. I'm unfortunately stuck at work till 5 today.. If that one does not have all its bits we can looks at one of the 2000l/H ones in my display if you don;t come right.

Have you checked the rubber bushes that holds the impllor in place? Could have worn out or perhaps just slipped out of place.This could be causing your shaft to rub all over the inside of the pump causing the noise.

Hey mek. i pulled the whole impellar out, it had been rubbing down on the one side for a while, so the coil wasn't round anymore and couldnt spin, probably from when the pump got hot wen my sump cracked... so i had to sand down the rough edges with sand paper to get it spinning again.

Hey G. I got a 7000l/h return and a 1500l/h. We can have a look tonight which one works best for you.

As luck would have it, one of my re-turns packed up last night... But I want to buy a bigger one anyway.. I run two any way so not an immediate crease.
