Proline pool pump SD-1--1N11XB

I discovered that my pool pump has a loose piece between the shaft and housing, and it is leaking water. I cannot locate the manual or find a website for proline in order to print out a manual. Any ideas?

    sounds like you need a new shaft seal at a minimum. the loose piece is a concern, can you provide some more info or possibly a picture or two?

This sounds like you have a bad seal in your pump and the loose piece is probally a piece on the shaft of the motor called a water slinger. This is just there in case your seal goes bad and leaks water it will spin with the motor and sling the leaking water out and away from the motor so a small leak does not ruin your motor. But you will still need to replace your seal and "O" ring.

What does it mean if my above groung pool pump just humms when I turn it on?


Assuming you know how to operate the pump properly as far as bleeding air out and opening closing valves in correct order if applicable. I would suggest checking the impeller and filter housing for obstructions.

Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is loosing suction or prime?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool Pump Losing Suction or Prime If your Swimming Pools Filter system looses Prime, it is caused by one of the following conditions.
Note: The lost of suction/prime is caused a leak which in turn sucks air into the system. The lost of suction/prime will be anywhere from the Main Pool Skimmer(s) to the Pool Pump. It will NOT be from the Pool Pump to the Pools Main Return(s).
1) First make sure that your water level is high enough so that the skimmer is not sucking air.
2) Check the Pump Pot Housing Lid Seal and be certain that its completely sealing and is not
Sucking air into the system. Check the lid for cracks. If either condition is true, replace the Pump Pot Lid Seal and/or entire lid
3) Check all fittings, clamps and hoses from the pools skimmer to the Pools Pump Pot Housing for wear, tightness and leaks.
4) Check Pool Pump Pot Housing for cracks.
If everything aforementioned in good working order, the next thing to check is the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal and the Pumps Impeller and finally the pump.

5) While the Pool Pump Motor is running, carefully inspect the area where the Pump Pot Housing attaches to the Pump Motor. See if there is any water leaking. Next, spray the area with water and see if the water is sucked into the Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
6) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half and inspect the Pump Motor Impeller. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged.
7) Re-inspect the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal by standing the partially disassembled upright, with the Pump Motor towards the ground. Pour water over the impeller and into the cavity. See if the water leaks thru to the outside of the Pump Pot Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
8) Remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts

I just installed a us pool pump motor eb841 1hp 3450rpm 208volt 56y and it is leaking water behind the square bell housing actually leaking bottom side of motor


There is a leaky water seal on the pump shaft housing between the pump and the motor.
The drain hole prevents water from going into the motor and this seal needs to be replaced before the motor is damaged.

The pump will come on, but will not circulate the water in the swimming pool. Prior to this, while it would circulate the water, I was loosing water from the pool through the pump.


It appears that one or all of the seals in your pump have failed. Most likely the SHAFT SEAL. purchase and replace the diffuser o-ring, housing o-ring, and the shaft seal. This should do the trick

Pump is leaking, how do i repair?


pumps can leak from a number of locations, if it's where the motor drive shaft goes into the water pump then it's the main mechanical pump seal, the seal is easily replaced but some brands need to be glued in with marine grade silicon. Remove the 2 piece (1 part would be on the impellor and the other in the pump housing) seal and bring it to your local pool/hot tub store to match up. There are only a couple commonly used so any shop should carry it. If there is extreme corrosion and difficulty taking things apart just bring in the whole thing to a pool shop for repair, to avoid breaking parts.
