The Taco 007 circulator pump is a vital component of your boiler system. Changing the Taco circulator pump is a difficult job that is best left to the professionals. The Taco 007 pump is part of Taco’s “00” family of parts that is designed to let you replace individual parts instead of replacing the entire unit. This is something that you should keep in mind before you begin your repair or call a service professional.
The Taco circulator 007 pump has a number of great features. Its compact design allows for smooth and quiet operation. Its direct drive system is critical to its low power consumption and the universal flange-to-flange dimensions make replacement virtually hassle free. However, just as with any mechanical part, sooner or later, trouble will arise.
The key to dealing with any part that needs to be replaced is knowing what you are doing, having the tools to do the job properly and access to the area where the problem is occurring. There are many jobs around my house that I could do myself if I really wanted to do them myself. However, after many years and many false starts, I have learned that the jobs in cramped spaces with difficult access are best left to the professionals.
Also keep in mind that before you can begin any repair or replacement project on your boiler or Taco 007 circulator pump, there are certain safety concerns which need to be addressed before you can begin work. Always make sure that power to all parts of the boiler is shut off at the circuit breaker. Also, when working with boilers, make sure that the system is allowed to cool and the water drained to prevent any chance of scalding. As I said earlier, sometimes it’s just best to let the professionals do the job.
