When replacing the pump, what pump should I expect to have replaced
Most plumbers when fitting a pump will carry a standard grunfos or another make, depending on the budget the customer can spend and the cost of the pump to the plumber. The plumber is allowed to fit the non-efficient pump until 2015, however the manufactured had stopped making them since December 2012. So until supplies have come down you are most like to find that the plumber will fit the non-efficient pump for your central heating. If the plumber has the customer in mind then you will have a choice or the plumber will just fit n efficient pump.

What is the guarantee for a good quality pump on my central heating system
Once you have you Grundfos Alpha 2 15/50 or any other type of Alpha pump fitted you should have more than 12-months. Grundfos give 2-years but is from the date of manufactured. Unfortunately an emergency plumber will carry this as stock and therefor if it’s been on the van for more than 6-months then the guarantee is shorter. As I am unable to confirm this, the guarantee is most likely going to be for time of installations.

Pump valves are not built long enough to with hold the use of a pump. If the pumps are able to be closed then the costs to replacing the pump can be done within the hour. The will estimate the job to a cost under £250 which will include the supply of the pump. If the job then becomes bigger then you would expect to pay on average £320 due to the average complications. It has also been known with complicated systems to cost about £500 or more but is normally down to either the size of the system or any occurring faults.
