Question about Home
I have a jetted tub, and we recently noticed a leak when running the jets. The pump is a Hayward self-priming pump, sp-1510-z-1-E, 3/4 HP. It appears to be leaking between the pump motor and the black part bolted onto the motor - where the motor shaft goes in. it drips slowly when the pump isn't on, but squirts water out and sprays it on the surrounding pipes when you turn the motor on. Does the whole thing need replaced, or are there seals I can replace?
You might just need to tighten the bolts. If that doesn't fix it you can dismantle it and replace the O-ring. Be sure to lightly coat the new ring with silicone grease before installing it. A pool supply store should be able to help you with the right part.
