Pumps are expensive — and they do not always need to be replaced. It always saddens us when we hear about a customer who purchased a new pump because a service centre did not know how to repair it.
We repair bearings, seals, wet ends, seized pumps and more (often on site). Don’t replace your pump unless you want to or need to. Avoid getting caught by the “you need a new pump” scam.
How much does it cost to repair a pump in Peterborough?
Depending on the problem, the rough estimates for pump repair are:
- Pump Seal: $120 on-site (or drop it off and save $45)
- Seized pump: often included in your pool opening or $95
- Bearings: $185 (or drop it off and save $95)
Should I buy a new pump or repair my old one?
That depends (as it always does). Older pumps are excellent work horses that often last much longer than newer energy efficient models but they will cost more in the long run. New, top-of-the-line energy efficient pump models can save you a hundred dollars in a season; and two-speed or variable-speed pumps can often last longer as a majority of the time they operate at much slower speeds.
