Radiant Floor Heating/Good radiant floor contractor in the Twin Cities MN

Question
We have a newer home (2006) and it has a Munchkin basement radiant floor/boiler (also heats pool and Instant hot water heater) installed in basement.  We have a very noisy (High pitched sound) pump and have isolated it ... but it only stops when turned off or when heat is not on.  We have been looking for a good contractor and have yet to find one.  The 3 we have had out suggested: 1) redoing entire system and throwing out the current boiler. (He also replaced a relief pressure valve that was causing some water flow on utility room floor)  2) Doing Nothing and living with it. 3) Never came back.  So, we were looking for some guidance on what the challenge may be and if you have a recommendation for a good contractor in the twin cities (we live in Excelsior).  Thx!!

My firm Badger Boiler Service designs, installs and services Munchkin and other condensing boilers in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St.Paul. We specialize in radiant floor heating and have never recommended "throwing out the current boiler" for lack of professional maintenance.

We have many condensing boilers installed in Excelsior, Mound and Minnetonka, including Munchkin, Buderus, Lochinvar and Viessmann. They are all working perfectly and receive factory authorized annual service.

Unfortunately the rough economy has put many builders and their sub-contractors out of business. We have adopted many orphaned condensing boilers in the past few years and have them running better than ever.
