  • Replacing Circulating Pump

    I presently have an Armstrong Astro 25B050S without timer that had gone out. I'd like to replace it with a like model with the timer. I just spoke with the plumber and I would like to try it myself first. I have valves before and after the pump. Two questions:

    I'm not sure what tool to use to unscrew the pump from the in line pipe connectors. Can I purchase it at a Home Depot like store?

    Secondly, the plumber mentioned that I needed to check something before I add the pump with a timer. What would I need to check just because I added a timer?

    Thank you,
    Adrienne

        I think you should get a pro .If you dont know what to use to take it apart, then it is out of you league . why do you need to change it , the pump the motor ,the coupler ?

          You should consider paying a plumber for this job as it would be only an hour labour and there electrical hazards as well. Just going by the "what tool" comment.
