Hello Logan I bought this pump from you little over 6 months ago from a RAP show, I am not sure if I have a receipt, but the pump is making noise sounds like birds or crickets, I have cleaned it and used a mild acid cleaner like vinegar and citric acid and the noise comes right back. Any idea what is wrong? Thanks

Also, since the noise came up over time, it's probably just the ceramic bushing on the front of the pump that got worn, it's unlikely the impeller is out of balance if it's been OK up until now. I will send some bushings your way asap.

Do you just want to try the bushing first? since they are small you could just put them in a mail envelope.
 

Do you have a Water Leak Emergency Kit on standby?
