Answer: 
Yes, gaskets come in the box. But the screws are sold separately (screws come with 2 gaskets so you'll end up with 2 spare gaskets).

Yes, but you don't need them as it also comes with the proper o-rings to use.

Answer: 
Taco circulator gaskets do come with gaskets, However it is worth noting many contractors have gasket preferences and choose to use full face gaskets instead of the ones provided. Home Depot sells them under internet SKU 202277432 If you put that number in the search block they will come up

Answer: 
I just replaced the cartridge only on my Taco model 007. Very easy - but the pump case below the impeller had corrosion products/ calcium deposits which stopped the impeller from turning, so had to chisel out the cavity. After that, worked perfectly.
Replacing two 'O' rings is easier than replacing the 2 flange gaskets to me, but it's a judgement call.

Answer: 
As the cost of a complete 007 and the cost of the cartridge are often so close I would replace the entire pump. On some of the more expensive pumps it makes sense to replace the cartridge only but not this one. Also when you replace a 007 you need it to run for a few hours to get air out of the lubricating jacket. You don't want the air to sit it it all summer as it will be rusted up by the fall.

Answer: 
Same thing happened when I replaced the cartridge - case was very hot, but no circulation. I pulled the cartridge and chiseled out the pump case... found that corrosion products/ calcium deposits had built up, stopping the impeller from turning. This could be your problem.

Answer: 
The first thing I would want to know is what you meant by "bled" Did you actually purge the entire zone down at the boiler. This would have forced hot boiler water up into the zone. Or did you just bleed some of the radiators or baseboard. Because you still may be air bound. Further here is a little trick that sounds crazy but it works.

The first thing I would want to know is what you meant by "bled" Did you actually purge the entire zone down at the boiler. This would have forced hot boiler water up into the zone. Or did you just bleed some of the radiators or baseboard. Because you still may be air bound. Further here is a little trick that sounds crazy but it works. If you want to know if a circulator is working take a screw driver and put the metal end to the cast iron volute. Then put your ear to the handle. You should be able to hear the spinning of the impeller as the water cavitates . You need to make sure any other pumps are off. Then using the thermostat, turn this pump on and off. You should be able to hear it spin using this screwdriver technique. Please feel free to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301 Read Less

Answer: 
Personally I have two B&G LR20BFs running parallel to my Taco 007 and the 007 runs hotter than the B&G, hotter than the supply line (I've never felt the B&G getting that warm). I've only had it for three days and it works.

It certainly could indicate the pump has failed but it could just as easily indicate that the system is air bound and as a result you are not getting flow. I would need more information to render an opinion. You are welcome to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301

1/25 HP Cast Iron Circulator Pump is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.

Power off the furnace and close the ball valve on the inlet side. Next depressurize the piping and loosen the four mounting bolts. Open the AC power cover and remove the wire nuts. Now you can remove the old pump and slide the new one in it's place. ALWAYS replace the gaskets since they become brittle from the heat of the adjoining piping. Tighten the bolts uniformly, reconnect the AC power and replace the access side cover. Reopen the ball valve and slowly re-pressurize the pipes watching carefully for leaks. The weak area of these pumps is the electrical terminal strip inside the access cover. They often corrode causing a loss of power to the pump. It's a low cost (<$100) repair for a do-it-yourself handymen.

I originally had a B&G little red booster LR20BF circulation pump, which went out on me as the heating season started (note to self: always check your heating system just BEFORE it gets cold!). I was thinking of getting a newer B&G model as a replacement because I feared that if I switched brands I might encounter problems with fitting it. Fortunately Luis at Elmont helped me and suggested I try the Taco pump, citing its low cost and ease of replacement (once you put in the pump, you can replace its cartridge without having to take off its mount). The Taco cost less than 1/3rd of what the B&G pumps cost (though to be fair, the B&G lasted for around 30 years and the other two pumps I have are still working), plus they're water lubricated so no need to remember to oil it, unlike the B&G which needs a few drops of 5w 30 synthetic oil every season. I was easily able to get the Taco to fit the brackets that were used for the B&G, and the height is the same (6 3/8ths inches). The Taco runs quiet, about the same as the LR20BF, but has no fan which is why it gets hotter than the B&G. Wiring was real easy, no need to observe polarity - the pump can't run in reverse. At first when I refilled my boiler and started it up, the Taco took a bit of time before it kicked in, making me a bit nervous that something was up. However once I shut the boiler on and off once more, it began to work and so far three days in I have no complaints. I have yet to test it in sub-zero temperatures. The one minus is that the instructions could be a bit better with diagrams. However its fair to note that most people are scared to death of messing with their boilers (and not without good reason - I had several bleeding valves go on me in the process), so this is usually a job reserved for professional plumbers. But if you have isolation valves or can drain your boiler, it's totally a DIY job - just know what to do if a neighboring bleeding valve springs a leak on you (tighten the packing nut and/or cap it at the spout, I used a garden hose cap) - I've heard of plumbers charging a thousand bucks to do such a job. There are videos on youtube of people swapping out B&Gs and putting in Tacos which are helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact Replacement It pretty much boils down to the basic need. I understand boiler heating systems. For this application, you go with either Taco or B&G. I give it a 5 because Home Depot has the guts to carry this pump for a decent price. Correctly installed, it should provide 15 years of service in your heating system. The Taco I was replacing was installed in 1997.

Home Depot swapped for a new one. One month old and is burning up. Shut it off so doesn't leak. Freezing cold LR until find replacement. Terrible product.

Looks very "industrial" but is a cost effective alternative to recirculating pumps that have built-in timers plus tempature control is much more convenient than living with timer restrictions.

Bought the TACO 007-F5 to replace the same with a 10 year old motor that was kaput. Nice Price, Home Depot! I'm not a plumber, but I do the vast majority of my HVAC work myself. Read the instructions before I began (always a good idea). Written was "CAUTION:  Do not use with flat gaskets. Use O Rings only. Use of flat gaskets will void warranty. So I called the tech support number in fine print on the 2nd side of the instruction sheet. Because when I opened the box, all I could see were 2 FLAT thin gaskets that appeared to custom fit the flange grooves. But they don't fit my definition of O Rings. Asked the guy what's up with this seemingly conflicting advice. He thought for a moment..... "I think what they mean is don't use the flat RED gaskets. What came in the box should be fine." Yep, he was right. When I removed the flange bolts on the old circulator pump, there were identical "O Rings" Flat, not tubular rings. Put some 650 degree silicone sealant on both sides for a little extra sticky. And it works great. Saved myself beaucoup dinaros my doing it myself.
