Shurflow pump

Model 4008, having to replace my pump for the 2nd time in a year & a half. Just quits pumping water. Anyone have issues with theirs?? No leaks in system. Seems to run fine. May have run it for a short time dry.

Have you taken them apart to see if there was something holding the check valves open, or stuck in the diaphragm area? That's usually why the just quit pumping.

Amazon is your friend. Sureflow pumps are very serviceable. Repair kits are available. You may just have a stuck check valve. Take it apart and clean it.

I had this problem. I replaced the pump, but kept the old one. I took it apart, saw nothing unusual. When I reassembled it and tested it at the kitchen sink, it pumped fine. I keep it as a spare.

By all means repair rather than buy new. If the motor runs it's definitely just something stuck in a valve or a leak in the diaphragm.

Not a bad idea to have a repair kit on hand. Not terribly expensive and consider a replacement check valve as well.

Repair, don't replace.

Order two repair kits and keep one as a spare.
