    Possible Pump performance issue?

    Alliteration aside, will the knick in my pump veins be a major performance issue? It is about 3/4 of a dime size. Please let me know what you think? Thanks.

    Yeah, that's kind of funked up on the side you don't want it. Get a used one and transfer your parts to it.

    I had a pump that was in really bad shape on the impeller side, alot worse than yours, and didnt really have any issues with cavitation or loss of hook up, but the HO pump is waaaaaay better if you dont already have one. You can use your damaged pump as a justification to yourself for stepping up to the HO.

    Really? You had a pump with badly damaged veins and there was no difference at all? Interesting...

    Rich didnt even say anything about it till I asked about it, I saw him looking at it though, and then he said, you're going to be getting an HO pump for your next upgrade BTW so dont worry about it. So I didnt.

    I used it for at least 30hrs like it was.

    Ill post a pic of it next time Im at the office, it was really bad. two veins damaged and one looked like a cresent moon shaped chunk about a 1/3 of the width of a quarter could come off at any moment. The prop had cavitation burns so I'm sure at one point it was cavitating, but it never really did on me.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the advice. I'm actually selling this pump and wanted to be completely honest with any potential buyers.
