This is from Danner:
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE
The housing should occasionally be removed to clean and inspect the impeller assembly. The impeller is the only serviceable item and can be pulled out of the body. If it is worn or broken the entire impeller assembly should be replaced. This will restore the pump to original capacity. Pumps taken out of service for an extended period with fluid inside run the risk of forming a crust which may prevent subsequent starting. Saltwater should be flushed out with fresh water.

IMPORTANT: FOR PUMPS USED IN SALTWATER OR HARDWATER.
Magnet impeller assembly must be removed approximately every 3 months for cleaning in white vinegar to remove accumulations of scale or calcium. Disassemble magnet from impeller by pulling them apart (it may take a strong pull). One end cap will come off. To clean the calcium scale off of the shaft and bearing inside the magnet soak in white vinegar for a few hours and scrape it off. Reassemble magnet/impeller assembly. Do not loose (sic) any washers located between end cap and impeller.

Hope this helps!

Water is draining from pool iwth Rike 1800 pool pump, but flow is very slow and weak and definetly nothing like 1800 GOH


How long is the hose the pump is connected to?
What is the inside diameter?
With no hose, the pump gives 1800 gph, 30 gpm
with lots of small hose, that could drop to 5 gpm.
Ensure no debris in inlet or hose.

The programme is stopping with about 40mins left and the tap symbol appears . I have read a few blog articles and ... removed the front plinth , cleared any filters, checked hoses for blockages (none) but...


using a tx20 driver remove the pump cover (remove filter and looking down into sump you will see screw at approx 10 o'clock), check for obstruction, may be a piece of glass etc so go careful, remove any debris and check the impellor turns ok. The unit will not drain without this cover refitted but you can check impellor is rotating whilst it is off. Check all outlet hoses, particularly the spigot connection under the sink if this is how it is fitted, Good luck
