That is great, that you posted a picture of the motor....
but unfortunately the motor does not have a seal. It is the wet end that is connected to the motor which makes a pump, and that has the mechanical shaft seal.
if you remove the cover of the wet end, and expose the impeller, then remove the impeller, and expose the shaft seal, we would be able to assist you better. A picture of the wet end and post it, will greatly assist as well.
unfortunately the information that you provided, although very much appreciated, really does not assist. Because the manufacturer of the tub, can use a variety of different vendors for the pump. But,...
if your tub came with a serial number? You can contact the manufacturer and they may have records as to what pump was used on your specific unit. And then from there you would be able to know what pump or more specifically...which Wet End, was used and then you would be able to find out which mechanical shaft seal went into that pump or Wet End!

if I was to venture a guess: it is either a
U.S. Seal PS 200 or PS 201

SOURCE: hayward pump has a steady water leak between pump and motor

Replace the machanical seal in the pump. It seals the shaft opening through the pump and is about a $5 - $10 part.

SOURCE: Proline Pump 8D-10-1n11CB. This is for a pool and is leaking from the shaft to the motor

The pump seal is bad on the unit. This requires disassemble of the pump unit. Remove power to the unit, dissasemble pump housing, remove the impeller from the shaft of the motor by removing the allen screw with an allen wrench. Seperate pump housing from motor remove the old seal replace seal. Lube motor shaft with a little clean oil or wd40 to facilitate easy install thru new seal,reassemble in reverse.

SOURCE: I replaced the motor on my super 2 pump with a new

Most likely leaking from either the shaft seal, or the valute seal (big seal plate o-ring). When you replaced the motor you should have also replaced the shaft seal. If not go back and do that whether it's leaking or not. If you get your head down and look at the bottom of the pump while it's running you should be able to see the water coming from the joint between the seal plate, and the seal plate housing, or just behind that from the bottom of the motor probably from the vent holes in the motor housing. If it's coming from the motor then the shaft seal is leaking, and the water is traveling along the shaft and out the bottom of the motor. This will eventually get into the motor and seize up the bearings. If it's coming from the valute seal, then you need to either replace or re-seat the seal. As a general rule you should always replace the shaft seal, and diffuser and seal plate o-rings when you replace the motor or split the seal. I'm not as familiar with the 2 speed hayward super 2, but the standard super 2's have a small ribbon seal, often called a rubber band. They are infamous for going bad especially after pulling the pump apart.

The jets on my aker Swirlbath are coming on by themselves in the middle of the night. What is the remedy for this problem?


Some tubs with air jets have a sensor that detects water in the piping and cycles the air pump to blow out the water in the air jets. Make sure the faucet is not dripping as the water leaking into the tub could be causing the pump cycling problem.

Hope this helps.

My Aker Swirlbath pump hums but ther is no water action when I turn it on


Air Switch Repair
It sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

My new pump leaks around seal plate


Leaking wet ends are a result of a bad shaft seal.Check to make sure it is installed properly or install a new shaft seal to prevent more leakage.If the motor runs and it will draw the leaking water into the motor and ruin your motor.Change the shaft seal as soon as you are able to prevent further motor problems.

Spa motor is leaking


Hi,
This is something you can do on your own.
The leak is either coming from the shaft seals or from the volute-face plate O-ring.
Most likely it is the shaft seals. You'll need to know the brand of the wet end (pump housing) to get the right seal, the motor manufacture doesn't help.

I have a 1 1/2 HP Magnum Force Pump by Jacuzzi. After making some strange grinding noise, I opened it up to find lots of white powdery material flaking off where the Seal Housing (#18) meets the motor...


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


Yes, the seal has been leaking and it needs to be replaced; probably the motor bearings too.


Removing the impeller requires you lock the shaft as you turn the impeller off counter-clockwise. To lock the impeller you will have to remove the motor end cover or a cap covering the shaft end depending on which version your particular motor has. Look at the end opposite the pump and imagine a shaft from one end to the other right in the center.


Once you remove the cover you will see a slot for a screwdriver, a flat for a wrench, a hex hole for a hex key or some combination of these. Lock the shaft and spin off the impeller. Some are so tight you will end up breaking them in the process. Simply replace it and the seal. Be sure the motor shaft is in good enough condition to allow the new seal to work properly. If too much shaft material has rotted away the new seal will leak soon after it is installed; you would need a new motor at that point.

Leaking #1 pump on Arctic Spas Cub hot tub.


I found out that the pump impeller can be unscrewed from the motor shaft by turning the impeller while keeping the shaft from rotating. There is a brass shaft coupling embedded in the back side of the impeller. This allowed me to remove the leaking seal assembly inside the pump by tapping it out gently. However, instead of just replacing the seal, I decided to replace the entire pump with a newer version. Cost was only about $25 more than replacing the seal and gaskets. The pump-motor assembly has been reinstalled in the spa and there are no more leaks.

The problem is usually a leaky shaft seal kit, shown here as Items 7 and 8 (click the pic for the larger, annotated view).


Fortunately, the shaft seal kit is inexpensive; but it can be a ****** to install, depending on how much rust you’re dealing with. May require a destructive removal of the impeller, too, but ain’t no thang ‘cuz the shaft seal kit comes with a new impeller. Here’s a nice, purdy picture of a brand new shaft seal kit. And just to help motivate you a little more, the money you save from replacing just the shaft seal vs. replacing the entire motor-pump assembly is well over a Benjamin. So you go ahead and drill, cut, and chisel all you want on that old impeller!
