    What does this mean that I am hearing a very high pitch sound from a brand new circ pump? It is a Bell and Gosset 3 stage pump and it does whir on all 3 stages.

    Thanks for any replies!

    Did you run it dry at all? The bearings don't like to run dry...

    It was not run dry and has actually stopped. It lasted for about 4-5 hours after it's initial start-up. Bell and Gosset NFR-25 (or is it NRF, but you get the idea)

    Thanks for the replies!
