    Default Tip! Reversible pump impeller protection

    A couple of years I had to replace a couple reversible pump impellers; I blame it on my ADHD! I would continuously forget to turn the pump off.

    Before the boat hit the water this this last season I coated each rev. pump impeller with Archoil Grease. Throughout the season I would forget to turn the pump off when emptying. Then last weekend while winterizing the boat I left the bow impeller on for close to an hour with no water running through. I was sure I just destroyed the impeller. However, when I opened it up to replace it still looked brand new and the grease was still coating the impeller and internal pump walls. Pretty amazing stuff.

    don't impellers typically come with a small tube of grease when you buy them?

    Not the bright green ones. But the stuff Iíve used with the black rubber ones washes off pretty quickly. I use it for a ton of other things as well. Firearms...
