How to replace an impeller on an asynchronous pump!

Part 1 - Removing the impeller from the pump body

When replacing or cleaning an impeller, carefully follow these steps:

Tools needed: Wire cutter, Philips screw driver, scouring pad, petroleum jelly, 2 zip ties

Step 1: Using a wire cutter, cut the zip ties from the pond fountains pump filter cage. Carefully pull the zip ties out and remove the filter cage.


Step 2: Using a Philips screwdriver, unscrew all 4 screws. Tilt pump forward so that screws fall out onto your table or work bench.

Step 3: Grab the discharge spout firmly. Turn counter clockwise to the ten o'clock position. Then pull the impeller cover out.

Step 4: Remove O ring first being careful not to damage it. Pull out the impeller. Now you have an empty pump cavity ready for cleaning.
