Thread: Broken Impeller Ring

    Broken Impeller Ring

    I just discovered that my impeller ring is broken in my Hayward Tristar pump. It looks like it could be fairly simple to replace it myself. Does anyone have any experience doing repairs on their pump?

    Also, what is the risk if I run my pump with a broken impeller ring?
    - 12' x 2.5' round
    - 1550 gallon
    - Cheesy piece of junk 4" paper filter with pump attched not good for anything
    - 1.5HP hayword pump with 29" x 9" paper filter sitting in my shed waiting to be hooked up

    - Picnic table on the side with a childrens "Step 2" slide and garden hose spraying it for the perfect redneck water slide
    - Very clear pool after I decided to do the BBB and ditch the starting kit from Wally World
    - Love the "BBB"!

    If it will prime, you will likely have significant loss of flow. But it may pump somewhat. You may also notice a different sound to the pump while it is running. If it won't self prime, you should not run it till you get it fixed.

    It does prime and preassure is only slightly down. It just doesn't sound good.

    Depending how it is broken, you could be wearing grooves, etc. into the impeller. When i said you could run it, i meant temporarily, till you could get the part and install it.
