You have to completely disassemble the pump and motor to replace a seal and the bearing(s). It is better to take it to a local electric motor repair shop if you are not sure how to complete these repairs. We charge about $60 total for the job and guarantee it a year. Most shops should be about the same.

    who would I call to fix my pump? I went to the pool place, the guys in there just pretty much told me it was impossible to do, i told them no it wasnt, they backstepped and said ok maybe expensive to do like $180, and that I would be better off getting a new pump anyhow. I was a little ticked at that point. thanks for any advice you can give, my husband is deployed for the next year and a half, and I have no clue about pools....

Hayward power flo leaks

If it is just dripping a little and it is outside don't even bother until to freezes up. The pool will evaporate much more water than is leaking through the pump.

It makes a noise like a bearing problem

The most common problem I have found with pool & spa pumps is that the pump seal wears out, it starts to leak, calcium starts to build up which causes it to squeal. A pump seal is not too too hard to replace. But if your pump is squealing with a "grinding" noise as well, then that sounds like bearings. At that point look for another pump

Water coming out down by motor , pump is pumping but leaking. how do you get impeller off

sounds like a shaft seal leak..... cut power to pump ... unbolt the motor at the seal plate and pull motor from pump... take electrical cover off back of pump and hold the shaft at the middle (may have to do some digging to find it) of the back of the pump... now youll be able to remove the impeller by spinning it counter clockwise...
make sure you dont go cheap on the seals... and make certain to replace all seals on pump
(diffuser oring, housing gasket, shaft seals, and lid gasket
