    HOW TO: Change Wear Ring w/out Removing Impeller

    it's the Freezer Method! I've used it several times now... it works great. Tip also that i learned from someone on the boards... you can use your wear ring twice.... just flip it over! yes it works... you can have your doubts, but please trust me.

    Nothing like having pictures do all the explaining

    in most normal wear circumstances this will work no problem. However if damage has been done to the wear ring excessively, you will still have a disruption in water flow and may experience SOME symtoms, but definitely improved over what it previously was.

    Shibby,

    I just looked in my freezer and realized that my 1/2 gallon of Dreyers French Vanilla looks exactly like a wear ring... :P

    If you don't eat the ring for dessert you can also turn it inside out and get to use it 2 more times !! (You wish !) Or just pay $39 and buy a brand new one with no grooves...sure to taste better too !!!
