Thread: Rock hard deposits inside of iron waterfall pump

    Rock hard deposits inside of iron waterfall pump

    If never heard of anything like this but it is REALLY hard stuff and all over the inside of the pump. It is also discharging a redness that looks like rust. It is not rust and I have acid washed, scraped and bashed most of it off and the paint surface comes out new underneath. Are these barnacles? Or maybe black algae that has run wild?

    What do you think?

    All those granules are rock hard.


    Let me know if the flicker photos do not come through.

    They did not come through. I edited the first one so you can see what I did (and change the others). You only need the JPG URL in the IMG tag and you need to close the IMG tag.

    Well, I had fixed the first one and then you must have edited at the same time.

    Make the first one look like this:
