I have a leak from the bottom of the pump


Also, check for the actual mechanical shaft seal, they leak, and appears as if it's coming off of the wet end. Making it look like the drain plug could be leaking, or the area between the volute which is the pump housing, and the cover, this would normally be a failed gasket or O-ring, depending on the brand. Sometimes just tightening the cover to the pump housing correct this issue.

Want to replace the seal on a water way SD-10-2N11CC


open up the pump volute/housing body, unthread the impeller from the motor shaft. then remove the seal & replace it. NOTE*** ensure that the round doughnut part, dark color, of the seal half (with the spring looking thing) touches the white part of the other half. Most people when changing the seal, believe that the rubber parts of both halves need to touch. that is WRONG. Reinstall and assemble everything back in reverse.

Jacuzzi pump motor leaks at the seal


This means that your pump seals are bad. They are an inexpensive part to replace luckily, but removing the impeller can be tough. There are a number of different Jacuzzi motor/pumps so be sure to get the right seal kit.

Briefly:
The trick is to stop the shaft from spinning while you loosen the impeller. FYI they don't usually come off easily, the older the pump the harder it is to remove the impeller.
On the rear of the motor there is a slot where you can put a flat screw driver into the back of the shaft to stop it from spinning. Once the impeller is off you can remove the volute (rear housing) and change the seal.
Let me know if you need more help.

Use a synthetic lubricant like magic lube and lay a bead all the way around in the groove the o-ring sits in. Press the o-ring into place causing excess lube to ooze out. Wipe your finger around the whole mess to coat the whole o-ring and then be sure to lube the o-ring on the diffuser.

Once everything is coated the large o-ring should stay in place and the pump half should insert fully into the volute so you can install the band.

You need to remove the lower spray arm, then the water volute that runs up the back needs to get disconnected by removing it from its rear clip (center of tub almost behind upper rack, next twist volute connector clockwise until you can pull the connector and upper supply volute tube apart. Remove connector from top of pump and then remove 5? torx screws to remove top of pump (filter plate) then look inside front section of pump sump area and locate two more torx screws to remove (on right) first sump inlet cover. The screw on the left is for the macerator (grinder assembly) cover. Pull straight up on the cover to expose the chopper assembly. Try not to disturb the chopper screen from it's location as it connects to the pump impellar shaft and is difficult to re-install. Clean any and all debris from the now open areas and re- assemble the pump.
Good luck!

How do I remove the Inlet and Outlet PVC pipes attached to the Volute? They may be sealed with a sealant or glue and am not sure if I need to remove the Volute bolts first.


You just have to cut the pipes in a place where you can glue them back together with a coupeling. If you overheated the pump though you may have warped the pipes and will need to go back far enough to get to good pipe and replace it all the way up to the pump. They just screw into the pump and you can seal the new ones with silicone or teflon stick or tape. Don't use pipe dope as it is not good for plastic.

Removal and installation of diffuser and impeller kit


All jucuzzi pumps are some of the most difficult to repair.Pump front should seperate from body(volute) of pump by means of screws, or some kind of band. Diffuser should have ss screws, or
be held in plsce by notches or both. Impellor spins counter clockwise to come off. Can only remove impellor with impellor wrench, or very strong hand. Rear of motor must be held in place with normally a 7-16 wrench, allen head wrench or screwdriver. Depends on manufacturer of motor. Then impellor can be removed!
Should replace shaft seal under impellor. Can seperate body of pump from motor by turning four outer bolts on back of motor. Must mark rear cover of motor so lines up exact for reassebly. Ussually 1/4 inch socket wrench.Seal can be pushed out from back to front with the corrrect size socket and a very light hammer.
Try to factory Jacuzzi seal, they are better than aftermarket.
Coat rubber on seal with light silicone, and press back into place without touching or marring seal face. Best way is use other half of seal (spring piece) to gently but firmly reseat seal. Examine body from rear to make sure seal seats. Reassemble as taken apart, or just take to a qualified service tech at a well established pool/spa place. Kirk
