    Default Impeller help

    I just picked up a new bronze impeller for the swtd and was wondering if I should return it if this is normal.the casting seems to have left holes that go through to the other side I can blow air against the blades and feel air on the back side. Is this how they all are they obviously machined it and let it go out like that.yrr

    If I just bought it new, I would return it. I have seen some casting flaws in bronze but not holes that go all the way thru.

    Default holes

    If thats unused and has casting holes like that, ts will be way worse after you run it. The pits will cavitate and burn lots of bigger holes. I received one like that, and after one season of use, Aggressor replaced for free.

    If your stuck with it I wouldnt worry about it too much. Run it a few times and check on it.

    I got one like that brand new, was not happy about it and was adviced to run it. It was never a problem, but took it out at the end of the season and sold it, after buying a new SS.
