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)

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.

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!
