Even though they're heavy duty devices, central heating circulating pumps do break down, and eventually they wear out. This usually takes fifteen years to happen, but it could happen sooner.

Also, how does a central heating pump work? The central heating pump is like the heart of your heating system. They work by taking water into the pump, pressurising the water with the impellers, before pumping the water around your heating system at a higher speed.
