it is unlikely that the mfgr. will replace the pvmp without proving an obvious mfgr. defect. i have seen welds on plastic and metal pumps BUT i doubt the cost difference is so great that a new pump would would not be advised. remember that if you repair or even suggest a repair that yov may be accepting responsability for a failure. is this customer worth the chance?
