Re: After Winterizing: Fire Up and Go?
I've heard the 'change the impeller' every year story a number of times. I don't do that. I inspect it each year and as long as I don't see any cracking in the vanes I just put it back. I'm on the same impeller for 3 years and haven't had any problems. I have an oberdorfer pump and use the oberdorder impeller. I tried the Globe blue impeller and it lasted less than one season. Back to the oberdorfer pump and no problems.
I keep spares on the boat and I can also change the impeller in under 5 minutes so it's no big deal to change if I have to.
