    Default Bad Water Pump?

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cT...t0aVje-3aY_ycl

    Got a Swiftech MCP655 Pump that was installed and running since March 2017. A couple days ago, I started hearing this really loud noise coming from the pump. Next day i drained the system and removed the pump. Tested the pump in its own loop and still got the clunking sound. Even opened up the pump to see if there was damage anywhere around the impeller and only thing i could see were some chicken scratches on the basin of the motor. So is the actual motor that drives the impeller bad or did the impeller scratch up the basin to where it cant spin freely anymore? I wasnt expecting this pump to go bad already 1y4m into having this loop. Setting on the pump was always 2 and not sure if it went bad because of the amount of water i have in the system, or if the pump should of been on a faster setting. Still gotta contact Swiftech about an RMA but figured i'd get some opinions from you guys first.

    My guess would be that a bearing is going bad. It would explain both the clunking and scratches. The only problem is that I don't know if the pump has an actual bearing or not. I would think all pumps would have to, but I'm not quite enough of an expert in that field to say for sure.

    I have had this style pump go bad on me only once and it was several years later when it just died with no warning.
    It never made a sound just died.
    I believe they have ceramic bearings but i'm not positive,
    if its still under warranty send it back for replacement or repair
    I went and purchased a new one and its been running strong for several years now
    Plus I drain the water and flush the system about every six months and have moved it to several cases in different configurations during that time.
    All I use is distilled water with several drops of bioside added to the system, runs clean and clear.

    Could you post some pics of disarmed pump (one picture is better than a thousand words).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    I used distilled water and bioside as well, but failed to flush the system out at least by the 1 year mark, so maybe it had an effect on it. Water always looked crystal clear until i drained the water out and ended up coming out a silver color. Yeah i was expecting the pump to at least hit the 2 year mark, at the least. The Impeller does sit on a ceramic ball. Ill try to open up the pump again and take some better pics. Will be contacting Swiftech on Monday to try and get a replacement.
