SOURCE: Can't get motor and impeller assembly off pump

The impeller unthreads counter clockwise off the shaft of the motor. on the back of the motor under a plug or the plastic cap there is the shaft of the motor with a slot for a standard screwdriver. put the biggest screwdriver you can find in there and turn on the impeller as hard as you can. After some years the impeller can get rusted onto the threads of the shaft and you will need to break it to get it off. (sometimes they just don't come off)

SOURCE: I replaced my hayward northstar pump housing

The first pump housing O-Ring I bought was from Leslies Pool Supply and was an after market part. I was the right size, but the rubber was too hard to allow it to compress and slide into the housing. I got the Shasta brand replacement part and the pump housing slid right in!

I guess stay with the original manufaturers parts to assure top performance.

SOURCE: suction with my pump

First thing to check is the removal of any winterizing plugs in the return lines. Sometimes plugs are fitted inside the lines in the pool making them not obvious. Secondly, check that any valves in return line are open. Many never lube type valve handles are oppositely positioned as compared to ball valves. If the multiport valve hasn't been tampered with, then there really is no other place to look. The flows everywhere but back to pool.

SOURCE: My Hayward pump is leaking.

is the pump leaking from the lid if so you may have an obstruction **** as dirt leaves or debree if the pump is leaking where the motor meets the wet end of the pump then you need to replace the ps1000 seal not sure if ps1000 will work on hayward but when you go to buy one. tell the pool store employee that you need a ps seal for an hayward.

What would cause my pool pump to over heat to the point of melting the inner basket?


I assume the basket is part of the front of the motor/pump housing , if so it can possibly get hot enough to melt if motor is getting hot (overload)or pump impeller is run dry or is rubbing housing with an obstruction inside , also i caution folks out there that think they can use a pool pump for a hot tub /spa , as these pumps are made of special materials and have addnl clearances in there construction to pump hot water , not all pumps are marked for there max fluid temperature , ask mfg if not marked .

My hayward super II pump output return pressure to the pool is very low.. The PSI readings seem normal and I can't see any visible blockings... How else can I test? What can be the problem?


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Start with the impeller and strainer baskets. Excessive debris in the basket(s) in front of the pump can reduce flow rates. Another possibility is debris lodged in the impeller vanes. If the baskets do not solve your problem shut down your pump and back out the 6 bolts holding the motor into the pump housing. Pull out the pump end and remove the diffuser covering the impeller (sometimes the diffuser sticks inside the housing and the impeller will already be uncovered). Use a zip tie or something else of similar strength to run thru each vane looking for things such as small toys, marbles, rocks, mulch etc. Once cleared reassemble the pump being careful to align the diffuser back over the impeller and into the pump housing correctly.

If nothing can be found in the impeller and the baskets are all cleaned and still you have reduced return pressure you will have to get into your filter to find the trouble. If you get that far, please post a comment with what brand and model filter you have for more guidance.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

I've changed o-ring at pump basket lid, cleaned all baskets and filters, had the Hayward pool vac internal parts all replaced and can't get pool pump to **** enough pressure to run pool vac....


If you reach into the hole behind the basket in the pump. You should be able to use a screwdriver to feel around to see if something is clogging the impeller. If so you can work it loose by working it in a counter clockwise direction, than use long nose pliers to pull it out. If that is your problem
Also check all your hoses for leaks.

This June, I had to replace my strainer housing on my Hayward Power-Flo Matrix pump. It cracked in cold weather before I remembered to remove it. On installing a replacement, I noticed that the pump showed...


One or more of a couple issues is at play here. First would be the seal replacement. Even if you used the correct seal if you touched the surfaces or failed to install it properly it can and will leak. Second, inspect the housing around the seal fit and the stem of the impeller for cracks. A hairline crack is enough when placed under pump operating pressure to allow a leak. Somewhere in there is your solution.

This sounds like you have a bad seal in your pump and the loose piece is probally a piece on the shaft of the motor called a water slinger. This is just there in case your seal goes bad and leaks water it will spin with the motor and sling the leaking water out and away from the motor so a small leak does not ruin your motor. But you will still need to replace your seal and "O" ring.

I cannot get the pump to pump water, motor still works.


Sounds like air has gotten into the pump and froze the pump. It will need to be replaced due to that reason. You can get a repair kit for the pump but it will not be gaurenteed to work

Leak between seal plate and pump/strainer housing


The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.
