Do not buy a new pump. It is very easy to replace the gasket. To replace often there is just four bolts you will take off to remove the impeller section or volute from the motor. Once you remove these bolts, and remove the volute end you will be able to replace the gasket easily. You may also need to replace the shaft seal if that is the area where your motor is leaking. This is also an easy part to replace and repair. Just remove the pump impeller to gain access to the shaft seal and replace. When replacing the shaft seal or the gasket make sure you have the proper parts to replace with or your leak will persist. Hot Tub Covers Spa Supplies The Cover Guy

SOURCE: I need to no how to wire in my balboa pump into m

Have VS501 (NEW) the Control panel at pool top does not display. Also the Blower control turns on the light. Seems like the light control wants to switch between low and high on pump. When I ourchased I also got a 25 foot extension cable for the control panel (only needed 6 more feet) could this be causing part of the problem with the extended cable being to long?

Which way do you turn the impeller to remove ir from the shaft. The part # is 310-4190. Thanks!


Counter clockwise looking at the impeller end. If you can't hold the motor shaft, you might try an impact wrench or using a socket and ratchet sharply strike the wrench.

My2 hp max e pro pump runs but barely moves any water


Have you opened up the wet end? If you have pine trees near you, it is probably a blocked impeller and needs to be cleaned. If this is not the case, is the pump basket full of water or air?
If it is full of water, it is either the impeller, or the motor bearing.

if it is full of air, it is an o-ring or shaft seal. more likely the shaft seal. Always check the impeller first.

Removal of Aqua-Flo pump from motor


You will need to pull the front of the pump off then unscrew the impeller. The impeller will be set on the shaft and will take some force to break free. Hold ing the back of the shaft and using water pump pliers on the face of the impeller will usually work but sometimes I will wedge a screwdriver in the fin of the impeller and hit it sharply (not hard) with a hammer to break it free. Then the housing will just pull free of the motor. When replaceing, the impeller just goes on hand tight. Hope this helps and good luck.

I had a water leak at the pump on my hot tub so I removed the motor and pump assy for repair. I removed and disassembled the wet end and determined I needed a new seal and impeller. Here's where the fun...


Here is your owners manual.

You have the correct impeller part number and the seal is a standard replacement part.

Please contact us thru www.arrowpools.net for a quote on the exact price and freight charges. Before freight, your parts would be about $20.

I can not help you with a whole wet end at this time but the parts should be available within a few days time.

Impeller replacement


The spacer plate (called a wear ring) should indeed be installed between the front plate and the impellor. The wear ring should be installed the correct way around, with the flat face against the front plate. Assuming that you're fitting the front plate correctly each time (it only fits on one way) there shouldn't be any issues. I can only assume that you have either fitted the incorrect impellor or it hasn't been tightened fully onto the motor shaft.

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Ian Kime.

Changing motor hayward 1.5 HP


Super pumps are very easy. If it is a northstar it is more difficult. Super pump. You will need 1 motor, 1 pump seal, 1 diffuser gasket, 1 housing gasket. turn off breaker, disconnect wires -noting whether it is 110 or 220 volts- , unscrew four bolts on back of pump housing (shaft side of motor), pull out motor with rear housing and diffuser (sometimes diffuser sticks inside), on wire side of motor hold shaft with wrench (flathead in some cases, but it is harder), unscrew impeller counter clockwise (like normal screw - you will nee a big pair of channel locks or a strap wrench), there are two pieces of the back housing and once the impailer is off you can remove the half that is closest to the end of the shaft to reveal four more screws, unscrew those four screws. screw back part of rear housing onto new motor. Install new pump seal to front part of rear housing and impeller, slide on front part of rear housing and then screw on impeller while holding shaft on wire side with wrench (only hand tight), replace housing gasket, replace diffuser gasket, slide into front housing and screw in four bolts. If electrical was 110 you will need to move the jumper on the wire end..if it was 220 then just hook kup wires...doesnt matter which is which as long as green or bare goes to the ground screw.
