View Full Version : desuperheater squeal
08-21-2010, 10:36 AM
I recently walked in the house and heard a loud squealing sound from the HVAC closet. Flipping the DHW switch to off makes it go away. Plumbers had been doing some work and cut off the house's main water supply.
Contractor will check it out but any chance it is permanently damaged?

Yes, there is a very good chance it is permanently damaged. I'm doing the armchair quarterback thing from miles away, but it sounds like the pump bearings are gone, probably due to an air lock.

We will be more than happy to look into your inquiry further. Please provide your model and serial numbers, as this information will be helpful in determining which pump you have.

Agree with hvacguy. Keep a new pump on hand, but sometimes clearing the air and burping the pump can solve it.
