    The Impeller sits inside the wear ring. The best way to inspect it is to pull off the nozzle and inspect it. If their is deep grooves in it it's time to replace it.

    The wear ring is in the pump. It is the white "sleeve" that encircles the impeller. Using a good flashlight, you can look in the nozzle of the pump and see aportion of it. You'll need to lay on the ground and look up into the intake grate toward and see more of the wear ring. You are looking for grooves or gouges.

    This is a recent thread that has a few pictures that may help:

    Hey Everyone,
    Should the wear ring after so many hours of riding. Will the ring enlarge due to normal pump pressure.
