The other day I noticed an unusually loud vibration type noise during drain time. After futher investigation the impellor came loose from the shaft. It appears that the epoxy finally broke down after 7 good years. The O ring and the impellor are in good shape, and I would like to try to salvage the assembly. What sort of exopy was used? Would Super Glue Anchor Tite Waterproof Epoxy work? It came withstand up to 1000 psi. What is the max pressure encountered by the pump during a normal drain? Also, I thought about installing a threaded insert and set screw into the impellor and then putting a thin layer of expoxy over it. I was a little unimpressed by how the impellor was help in place and thinking of better solutions. What are your thoughts?
ANSWER Hello Brad. Sorry, but the manufacture would only have that information. The recommended repair is to replace the part and not re-glue it. If you want to do it the other way, you will need to contact the manufacture and do it at your own risk.
