Because they are plastic, they can change shape slightly over time. As will be seen in the answer to the next question (What Are The Key Factors For Diaphragm Pump Maintenance?), plastic AODD pumps require more frequent inspection to make sure that the bolts holding the pump casing, haven’t become loose. The only other consideration for a plastic pump is to ensure that that material being pumped is compatible with the pump’s plastic.
