The product manual can be downloaded at Harbor Freight's website. In the manual it says the warranty is 2 years.

You seem to have a lot of company with that one and I think at least one other person here besides the other two I saw on another site had similar results from those "3 HP" pumps. The older "V" twin cast iron pumps they had were decent for the price and seem to hold up ok but they are made mostly of Aluminum now (as of a couple of years ago) and seem to be cheaper built overall, I have no idea about how well the new ones might hold up but I would suspect they are not very durable.


It is important to note that these are CHINESE pumps we are talking about and have absolutely nothing to do with the VERY GOOD quality US General pumps which are built in Italy.

gotta be very selective when choosing their products. Some of their stuff are gems but others are just duds.

And that is a gem of a quote! That about sizes it up and the guys who just write off everything HF sells are missing some real bargains.
