Ballast pump done after 26 hours

Already after 26 hours on the boat my KGB ballast pump died. The motor still runs but the pump doesnt. I opened up the pump and confirmed the green rubber impellor appears not to be damaged. I can turn the impellor by hand, but it almost seems like the shaft may be spinning or uncoupled from the motor.

Of all the other boats i had with ballast, this IS the first pump to fail on me. Especially after only 26 hours

Anyone else have issues with the Jabbo pump?
