Hi, just installed one, so curous myself...
from the instructions I got it said to put some of the special water based lube in every 6 months from memory. It has two lip seals
with the greasing point between them so provided the inner lipseal is not badly damaged (good way to check) lubrication can easily be done in the water.
How old is it? The shaft might also be scored slightly where the lip seals
Mine was quite cheap
at about $125 posted to Australia
from the UK. The instructions said about 4 year replacement interval from memory.
I used very soft silicon hose into the water feed point to reduce the strain on the hose tail.
How did it cope with the freezing conditions?
