    Why waist so much energy on speculation, put it to the test and see if she holds or blows.

    You'll be crying with a face full of jellyfish snot to i'd guess!! No wonder you want another boat you buried everything inside this one.

    If it was only half full, then you might be OK. Where freezing water gets you is when it has no where to expand to, and it can generate a lot of force. I had this on my old jet boat where it cracked aluminum heat exchangers when water is trapped inside. I would definately make sure what is in it is completely thawed before you apply power to it, or this would damage the impeller. I am betting the impeller is OK as well, since they are flexible.

    If it is damaged, you should see cracks in the casing of it based on my experience.

    rubber takes freezing glood, just dont turn it on before its thawed

    just get another impellor but i'd be more worried about the case being cracked. I've ordered parts direct from pacer before.

    I don't have the technology to take a pic I lost my memory card in my cell phone. Its a plastic hydraulically driven raw seawater pump w/ a 2" inlet/outlet. I hope its tough enough to w/stand a good thorough freezing. Did I mention its spendy?
    one of these busters....

    started a topic forgot to drain the pacer pump

    forgot to drain the pacer pump

    The title says it all. I went out and pulled the drain plug on my 2" hydraulic pacer pump and you guessed it, water drained out :upset::upset::upset:

    Do you guys think its ruined?
