Stenner stopped working a few days after replacing tube

I replaced the tube since the last tube was roughly 3 years old and not pumping fluid anymore (noticed via low chlorine).

It worked fine to start, but then I got home tested the water and it was at 3.5 chlorine levels which was odd since I expected higher

I started the pump and it wasn't spinning the rollers. I took it apart, reassembled and had a really hard time getting the rollers to re-expand when the tube was in there, when the tube wasn't they expanded fine. I got the tube in there with it expanded and it doesn't move the rollers.

Attached is a video. From reading some others like: expanding stenner pump rollers they mentioned a new roller assembly.

Not sure if anyone has experienced this or not, but before I throw money at parts maybe someone else has some advice.

You need new gear and roller assembly.
Or a new head

Alright I thought it might be roller assembly. I probably stripped it or just normal wear and tear stripped it. I bought a new one so will give it a shot when it comes.

Just an update for those with future issue. I replaced the roller assembly today. Before replacing the inside of the old one was basically rounded to a perfect circle, but the new one had the D indentation so it would get better grip on the D shaft.

New one worked perfectly like new. Running it now for 30 mins to loosen up the tube some while pumping some chlorine to test it, but all in all was a $30 fix.
