VIDEO: Proper Use Of Sealant During Water-Pump Installation

Most water-pump failures are caused by factors other than a faulty pump.

In a previous video, we talked about how neglected coolant or the wrong kind of coolant can compromise the operation of a water pump. 

In this video, we’re focusing on some installation practices that can lead to premature water-pump failure, and some tips you can give your customers to get it right the first time. Specifically, we’re going to look at how automotive sealant can make or break a water-pump installation, depending on whether or not it’s used correctly.
