Hey if anyone has any info on a replacement pump for this reactor any suggestions would be appreciated. Pretty much zero amount of equipment or supplies for SW in my town so I can't really take the pump anywhere to compare. Turns out the pump is discontinued and mine burnt up. Literally

Honestly your beat bet would be either ebay for another sedra or pull out the dremel cut the old parts out and glue in a sicce if you're comfortable doing that kind of stuff

Or I could just check my garage to see if the sedra in there is the right one

Ryan just pulled that pic off of another site. My pump is burned up. I know the newer reactor uses sicce but not sure of model and don't want to order wrong pump.

Tyler can you get the actual pump model I can't seem to find that info anywhere. From there and new one would be easiest way to fix this and just swap the impeller cover.

Only problem is the union that's glued to the top of the pump

I had the exact same thing happened to mine, but it was the sicce pump.
I had to get the store I bought mine from order a new pump for me.

I replaced the pump on my CA reactor (different brand) with a tiny DC waveline pump.. much quieter :)

Oh but I have that union. Bought a monster Vertex media reactor couple years ago and never used and still have those fittings new in package
