Hello

Without a data plate to go by there is no way to determine the exact model of this pump, these pumps have been sold over time, so a value can be given in order for you to sell it.

Hi Glenda
I received your response to my question and honestly neithe one of my inquiries about the pump were answered, I am not certain what you referred to when you stated without a data plate there was not a way to identify the pump, there is a plate on the pump but it is very difficult to read however I will attach a photo, and your esponse about the approx value was not only confusing but it was devoid of a appox value. At this point i would like to request a refund since neither part of my 2 part question was answered. I am not exactly sure how to go about requesting a refund please advise.
