Refurbished pumps?

I read on Kerri Sparling’s blog that she had cracked her pump case (a different brand) and was awaiting a replacement, a refurbished pump. Are manufacturers allowed to refurbish pumps? Anyone have any experience with this?

I’m not 100% sure, but I think Accu-chek used to “refurbish” the H-Trons long ago. When the Time-out came up, you sent it back, and they checked it out, added more time, and sent it back. but this would have been AGES ago.

At least the current rep i talked to yesterday is they have gotten out of the habit of sending refurbs, and tend to send NEW pumps if its anything beyond a software/minor fix.
