Good replacement for older model, more features
I bought this unit to replace a very old model SM-303-BS. The design is very different than the old one in terms of the way it looks but the motor unit can screw directly into the top portion of the old unit. It has a flow control for you to control the rate at which the water is circulated through the piping. You can also buy a timer unit, model # LHB08260001 which screws onto the bottom of this unit and provides on / off functionality to this pump.
There is also a "kit" on sale on amazon labeled SMT-303-BSW with the photo of the older unit but it is actually just this pump and the timer together. However it costs MUCH MUCH more, don't buy this because it is the same thing as just buying these two parts separately.
Also, I had some difficulty installing this onto my old top section, but thats only because the threads had some solder on it from the original installation. After this was removed it went on fine.
Also note this unit is louder than the original unit, but it is acceptable. Less wattage (33 vs 10) and more features, now my water is hot again as soon as i open the faucet.

Good replacement for an older Laing Pump
I ordered this Pump to replace an older Laing Circulating Pump that broke after 14 years. The nice thing is that you can unscrew the old pump and just screw on the new pump. No soldering required. The part that stays in the line has no moving parts and its showed no wear.

By Paul B.
I purchased this pump because the old style of the same model failed after 8 years of faithful service. This one was a perfect match for the housing and replacment took five minutes. The speed setting is a major plus! Hope this one lasts as long as the last. Great product!!!
