B&G is it time to switch to Armstrong

heatguy Member Posts: 102
Just had a bad experience with b&g bearing assembly part # 186863 and was wondering if there where others having troubles too.First assembly i purchased (was in factory sealed box)  you could just get  it to turn by hand,went back to supply house got new sealed box bearing assembly,installed and instantly leaked upon install,from weep hole.The supply house is now closed have to leave pump running due to church space  being  used that night. called Wallace Ennace was told had to purchase new one and get that one back to them and they would determine if it was under warranty...  any Armstrong  dealers in central jersey  that are  good  ?


  • Yes.....

    had a PL pump noisy out of the box.  Replaced it with another, still noisy but not as bad.  Also, bearing assemblies for 3 piece circs only seem to be lasting only 2 to 3 years.
