I just received my booster pump and strainer today, sorry for the dumb question, but is there any maintenance to the strainer? Anything inside that I should change periodically?
Thanks!

You should unscrew the strainer cup and clean out the screen inside - how often you need to do that depends upon you water source. Check it afer a month or two and see what you see.

Thanks, it did look like it should come apart, but I haven't been able to get it to unscrew. I'll keep working at it!

They come from the factory very tightly screwed on. Use a pair of chnnel locks if you have to, but try not to bugger up the plastic with the channel locks.
