I am a refrigeration mechanic and have had to inform far too many restaurant operators about this fact.

They log the temps in the equipment taken by an ir gun, and they are all over the map. The most consistent recording is done with a probe thermometer in a bottle of water.

Too many employees don't question the reading and just log the number that is far out of range.

15 is old for a pump. But I have seen older. The floats are cheap, a new pump is way more. But there are sweet pressure controls on the new ones. And variable flow rates too.

If you can afford it, go new. But a new float will get you through winter.

Those diaphragm switches always screw up. Add a float to the circuit. They sell add on floats. Just make sure you get the right one. Some open on rise and some close on rise.
