This once functional device had provided years of service pumping water through our air-conditioning system. Despite its corroded state it was still faithfully doing its job, at least until yesterday.
Along came a 44 degC day and it finally jammed up and that was then end of our cooling.
All my attempts to remove the corrosion were in vain, the pump motor had jammed, the bolts had sheared and I no longer trusted the integrity of the insulation.
By all accounts it was beyond repair.
