  • How to clean the impeller (300SP Pump)

    Is it possible to remove the cast iron casing and clean the impeller? I am cleaning the sump pump and I have a lot of sludge and washer lint build up around the cast iron casing on the bottom. Does removing the bottom cast iron casing expose the oil filling or should I just replace the pump outright?

    No. It's separate from the motor. I would just spray it with a hose through the hole as it is going to get dirty in no time. That would be the alternative from taking it apart.
