Water may be crossing over from nhot to cold at a shower or bathtub or washing machine. To stop this,

1. Turn off the shower using its faucets and not the shower head.
2. Turn off the washing machine faucets when the machine is not in use.


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
