Question about Pool & Spa
My pump is leaking so I want to change the seals. therefore I have to remove the impeller. I hold the motor shaft with a flat screw driver but I can't rotate the impeller; tried clockwise and counter clockwise. I 'm worry yo break the impeller if I go further. Thanks for your support
Remember to remove the impeller locking screw (left hand thread) before attempting to unscrew impeller.

Keep trying - It is stuck and will likely break but you have to remove it to change the seal. It is not uncommon to need to replace the impeller when the seal fails since the water gets behind the impeller shaft and rusts the metal causing the impeller to bind. If you still cannot get it free pull the motor thru-bolts and lock the rotor once removed from the motor in a vice. Use a large pair of channel locks to break the impeller free...replace it if necessary.
