If its just an o-ring seal i would recommend an o-ring splicing kit about $50 or less from grainger. the kits come with plenty of extra material for any future projects as well.

How to repair a front pump seal on a '99 cadillac deville concourse

You did not specify which pump. If it's the water pump, you will probably need to replace it, as it is probably the shaft, not a pump housing seal, that is leaking. If it is the housing seal, you will still need to pull the pump to replace it - there is a special tool for this.

Pool pump leaks

This will be a ceramic seal that seals between the impeller (motor side) and the pump housing. The seal is hard to change if you don't have a shop. If by chance you do get it apart be sure not to contaminate the new ceramic seal surfaces. You should have new bearings installed in the motor while it is down and apart.

Water pump leaks

It will be leaking from either the housing seal or bearing seal - if it's the housing seal it will be leaking from the edge of the pump, if it's the bearing seal it will be leaking from the centre of the shaft or from a small bearing drain hole.

You may be able to get a housing seal, but if it's coming from the bearing, it will need a new pump...

Fisherpaykel Dishwasher, DD602 need air pump

If the seal is cut then I do not see any reason to believe the pump is also faulty. You can test if the pump is working or not buy listening to the sound when you start the dishwasher. The air pump runs for a few minutes at the start of the cycle. You can try and find pump for DD601 which might also work. Unsually the pump and the release valve should be replaced together for better operation.

Is amsf-6 a self priming pump??

most all pumps need to be primed the first time before use, and every time after a repair !! you fill up the tank with water (about 3 gallons?)first this gives the pump suction it needs to start pumping IF YOU don't prime it it will burn up the shaft seal (in just a few minutes) and it will be slow to start pumping or leak OR not pump at all. if you ran it dry you will need to replace the shaft seal, you can split the pump at the seal plate leave the plumbing portion hooked up and bring the motor att. to the seal plate to your local pool pump motor repair guy and have him replace the shaft seal ..BEST CHOICE $20 and ask him how 2 take better care of it (priceless )..hope this helps ... jay the pump repair guy in longwood fl

I need a seal for my 1.5 horse power SPL pool pump, but I cannot find it. The company I bought my pool pump no longer carries Jacuzzi pumps. Is there somewhere I can get it or another seal I substitute?

Any pool store in your area should have a 201 mechanical seal available. If not, try looking under pump repair for a shop in your area. It is a very common seal and is interchangeable with the Hayward super pump seal so it should not be hard to find.

I have antifreeze leeking out a pin hole under the water pump

It is very likely the water pump seal. It is always a good idea to replace the bearing while you have it opened up.

I have a jacuzzi magnum 1500 pool pump which leaks. I changed the O-ring and it still leaks. If I have to change the seal on it, how do I change it. I tried undoing everything on this pump. Thanks!

You need a 201 seal for the pump. Most electric motor shops that work on pumps and of course pool store carry these. If you are unfamiliar with how to change the seal, the charges to have it done are usually low. We charge $15 - $30 depending on how much of the pump is brought in and therefore remains to be taken apart to replace the seal. The seal is about a $5 item.

If trying yourself, you will need to completely disassemble the pump, lock the motor shaft at the rear of the unit, spin off the impeller, and replace both halfs of the seal.
