Whether it’s worth reconditioning a pump depends on several factors, including the specific circumstances and considerations involved. Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to recondition a pump: 

  1. Age and condition: Evaluate the age and overall condition of the pump. If it's relatively new and still in good working condition, reconditioning may not be necessary or cost-effective. On the other hand, if the pump is older or has significant wear and damage, reconditioning could extend its lifespan and restore its performance.
  2.  
  3. Cost comparison: Compare the cost of reconditioning the pump with the cost of purchasing a new one. In some cases, reconditioning can be a more cost-effective option, especially if the pump is expensive or specialised. Consider obtaining quotes from reputable service providers for both reconditioning and replacement options.
  4.  
  5. Availability and compatibility: Assess the availability of spare parts or components required for reconditioning. If the necessary parts are readily accessible, it may be easier and more cost-effective to recondition the pump. However, if parts are scarce or the pump is obsolete, finding replacements may be challenging, making replacement a more viable option.

  7. Long-term needs: Consider your long-term needs for the pump. If you anticipate requiring the pump for an extended period or if it serves a critical function, reconditioning might be a wise investment. However, if your needs are temporary or likely to change, it may be more practical to opt for a new pump that meets your specific requirements.

  9. Energy Efficiency: This is a consideration that needs to be taken into account when looking at the options of reconditioning or replacement, typically new pumps are more efficient which can provide reduced power consumption, therefore, reducing costs and environmental impacts.
  10.  
  11. Expert opinion: Consult with a professional or pump specialist to assess the pump's condition and provide recommendations. They can offer insights into the feasibility of reconditioning based on their expertise and experience.
Ultimately, the decision to recondition a pump depends on a combination of factors, including cost, availability, and the specific circumstances surrounding the pump's use. Careful evaluation and consideration of these factors will help you make an informed decision. Please contact the Dura Pump Team for a full evaluation on 01604 648800.
