Did air pressure damage water pump?

While blowing out irrigation system, valves closed and compressed air blew the inlet check valve off while running through the centrifugal water pump.


Do you think this damaged the water pump? Air pressure was I think around 100 psi

Not likely, unless the case cracked.

Water stuff will usually handle 100PSI no problem.

Not sure exactly what you mean by "blew off", but all you can do is replace and see how it runs (or not).
