You have to remove the back cover from the motor. Next loosen the capacitor. Put a 7/16" wrench on the shaft and the pump impeller will screw off by hand.

the absence of the copper cone will not cause a leak, however, there is a different shaft seal that needs to be used in lieu not having the copper cone installed.

If the impeller is damaged or cracked, that can cause a leak at the shaft seal. If you replace the impeller, the shaft seal will most likely need to be replaced as well.

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


It is likely how you are installing the seal. You can not touch the faces of the seal as you install it and need to be very careful with how you press the parts into place. Another common problem is not removing all of what was left of the original seal insert (the copper piece). Finally, inspect the area around the impeller threads for hairline cracks. If you notice cracks where the bronze bushing molded into the plastic meets the plastic replace the impeller. Those cracks can let leaks thru.


When installing the seal faces use a clean, dry cotton rag to apply even pressure with. Do not use petroleum based lubricants to ease installation. Instead use synthetics like magic lube to grease up the surfaces. A small piece of 1" PVC or a bearing driver works well for installing the insert. You can also use the small cardboard insert from the seal package as a means of covering the seal face as you press it.


In the end making sure you follow these directions you should be able to stop the leaks. Try using the new seal after you thoroughly and carefully wipe it clean. If not, replace them one last time and handle with care.

Pump is leekin water


there are a couple of places where the pump may leak. The discharge fitting, the seal plate o-ring, or the shaft seal. If the shaft seal is leaking, water will be dripping from the bottom of the pump where the motor mates to the seal plate.

How do you replace a seal on a Sta-Rite pool pump? How do you remove the old seal? Ceramic and graphite.


Replacing a shaft seal requires some good mechanical ability.
first, always make sure power is off at the breaker before you work.
You'll have to remove the band holding the wet end to the seal plate. Then remove the diffuser covering the impeller. Remove the cover on the back of the motor. You either need a 7/16 open end wrench or a armature tool to hold the motor shaft while you unthread the impeller (if the impeller has a screw in the middle, you will have to remove it by turning clockwise, left hand threads) counterclockwise. You can then pull the carbon part of the seal off of the impeller, make sure to remove all of it including the metal sleeve. You will then have to remove the seal plate and push the ceramic part out from the back. You can then clean and lube the seal plate and install the new ceramic part of the seal, try not to touch the ceramic with your hands if possible. You can then lightly lube the impeller shaft and slide the carbon part of the seal with the carbon facing toward the ceramic as you thread it on. If the seal plate had a copper heat sink, you can either replace it or use a different size seal. (I believe it's a PS-201) Re-install the seal plate, impeller (and screw if applicable) and diffuser. You should now be ready to mate the seal plate to the wet end. Make sure you fill the pump before you try starting it up, especially with a new (dry) seal.

I had to replace my pump motor and can't get my pump to quit leaking at the joint. I am trying RTV Sealer as we speak.


Did you change the seals? Whenever pump motors are replaced, the ceramic shaft (mechanical) seal should be replaced. Its also a good idea to replace the seal plate and diffuser seals.
