I currently have a Water Ace Sink Pump (R930)
actual pump is housed in a large plastic housing (as its above ground,
not sunk in a sump). This housing appears to be the same on several
sink pumps from various manufacturers. On the top, there a plastic
plate (used to access the filter) held down by 4 bolts (one in each
corner). Two of the bolts have gotten stuck and broken the metal ring
the screws go into from the plastic top of the pump housing. Now, under
high pressure (washing machine draining), some water comes out the
plate. as now there are only two bolts (on 1 side) that have anything
to bite onto and hold the plate down tight. Two questions....
1.) Any ideas on how to reattach the metal rings to the plactic top?
Or any other workaround? I have to gain access to the filter about
once every month or so. I was thinking about using silicone chaulking,
and reapplying each time I clean the filter. Is this doable?
2.) Can just the housing (or better yet, the top of the housing) be
purchased without the pump? The pump is probably the most expensive
part, and mine if just fine.
Thanks in advance.....
