And... the 4280 is of a Viton Makeup - much more durable!
And will stand up to the harshness of Salt!

You're looking for US Seal number PS 4280, Also Jandy # R0479400. The 1000 seal has killed more pumps than can be counted.

Polaris pb460, replaced the impeller and seal. motor binds when the impeller is threaded all the way.


This means that one of the 2 pieces of the shaft seal are not seated all the way. More likely the part on the seal plate. Make sure you use a non petroleum based lube to seat the shaft seal.

I have new impeller & seals for pb4-60 booster pump and need to know the orientation of ceramic/rubber seal should be inserted into impeller - rubber lip toward or away from threaded brass wijidigit?


Rubber toward the impeller,so when you screw the impeller back on the ceramic ant the graphite on the other half face each other. This is so the graphite wears smooth against the ceramic.

How do you change the shaft seal on a polaris pb4-60 pump?


BE CAREFUL YOU CAN BREAK THE SEAL PLATE BY OVER INSTALLING THE #1000 SEAL , TAKE 6 BOLTS OUT UNSCREW IMPELLER THE TAKE THE 4 BOLTS THAT HOLD THE SEAL PLATE TO THE MOTOR, KNOCK OUT OLD SEAL FROM SEAL PLATE USE SOCKET THAT FIT OVER SEAL. I USE A 1 1/4 SOCKET. THEN REPLACE CERAMIC IN IMPELLER (READ INSTRUCTIONS WITH SEAL) OR TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY.. HAVE HIM DO IT . $ AROUND 40.00

Replaced my boost pump and now eveb before I turn on bust pump water runs out around metal seal and seal bracket. I have removed and reseated seal and applied sealant lub. any ideas


You either have a bad seal or bad connector..make sure you check them both very well....and if you didnt use a new seal, the old seals are pron to leak when re used.

Once the booster pump (for polaris 280) is turned on, water starts to leak badly from the front.


There is a bad seal and/or gasket in the pump allowing it to leak. It is usally the seal. Take it to a local electric motor or pump shop and the repair is probably under $50 total. You could also buy the parts to try it yourself, but the seal that pump takes (AS-1000) is a little tricky to seat properly. Besides, if your bearings are also damaged, the shop could fix that as well.

My pb4 booster pump is leaking from the booster pump bracket and making a ''whining'' noise when turned on????


Replacing the pumps mechanical seal should fix the leak. The whinning may be from bearing damage due to the leak. If you are unsure how to fix it, try a local electric motor repair shop. We charge about $55 - $60 for that seal and bearings installed.

Leaking from pump, is it usually the o-ring or something else?


Replacing the entire pump for a broken / leaky seal is a bit overkill - kinda like being advised to replace an engine when its your oil filter seal leaking. Poolcenter.com sells a Polaris "Go Kit" consisting of the three primary o-rings/seals that need periodic replacement as they dry-out and crack, promoting leaks, during non-operating months. Its called the Go-Kit 71 (for about $15.00) plus shipping. Replacement is fairly straight-forward if you know how to disassemble the pump - not rocket science but definately engineering.
