    Hi MASA,

    I urgently require some help - I'm in urgent need of a return pump because mine stopped working after the power tripped during a thunder storm. I've checked it thoroughly and it's completely dead. As the shops are closed now (after 5pm) I'm really stuck...

    My pump is rated for 3700l/h so if anyone has a spare rated for similar and would be willing to sell/lend it to me I would infinitely grateful:blush:. I'm recirculating the sump water over the DSB but really need to sort this out ASAP. My only spare pumps are much smaller and won't lift the water from the sump up to the DT (about 1m head height).

    I live in Northriding, Randburg/Fourways.

    My sincere gratitude in advance.:)

    Is it not working at all ? After putting lots of RO water into a multiplug a while back , my return pump run but didn't do much but make some strange noises . I pulled it out , stripped it apart , cleaned it , put it together and let it run in a bucket of look warm water for a bit . Worked like a bomb , if youlle pardon the punn . It might just be that when you restarted the pump , it ran in reverse . That happens from time to time . Hope you come right bud .

    Thanks for the suggestion Fred. The thing is stone-cold dead! Not even a vibration or hum, even after stripped down and reassembled.
