Aplex Pump Repair

  • Cracked housing—The housing, besides the motor, is one of the most expensive parts of a pump to replace. If your housing has started to show signs of deterioration, look at the other parts comprising the system. For instance, if the impeller, pump lid, or basket need to be fixed, as well, you should consider replacement over repair.
  • Age—Unfortunately, pumps do not increase in value as they age. If your pump is between 12 and 15 years old and frequent Aplex pump repair is something you deal with, the cost of maintenance will soon start to outweigh your pump’s current value.
  • Obsolete parts—After a certain period of time, many pumps are discontinued by their manufacturers. When this happens, parts for these pumps can be extremely difficult to find, and in some cases, are completely unavailable. If your pump was discontinued by its manufacturer, but you need new parts for it, you may be forced to invest in a replacement.
