Question about Pool & Spa
I just rebuilt my flowtec fpof 360ac pump with a new impeller, seals, etc. because it wasn't pumping water. The rebuild didn't fix the problem. There is still almost no pressure in or out when I turn it on but the pump is turning???
If you have replaced the impeller and seals there must be an air leak or blocked hose somewhere - perhaps on the inlet seal?

SOURCE: pump seals
The impeller is threaded on to the shaft. The trick is to hold the shaft in order to untread the impeller. The surest method is to disassemble the back of the motor, exposing the opposite end of the shaft. There should be a spot to put a wrench in order to hold the shaft immobile. Then, it's simply a matter of unthreading the shaft. A strap wrench does a great job of holding the impeller without damaging it.

some times you need two people one to hold the shaft the other to turn impeller on you need to put in a vice wraped in a towel and not to tight or break it off and replace it to

The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.

First, separate motor and pump. Remove back cover of motor. Drive shaft of motor either has a slot on end for a large screwdriver or a flat on it for a wrench.(usually 7/16) Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Neither...it is threaded onto the motor shaft. Lock the shaft at the end opposite the impeller and turn it off counter clockwise.
