Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

I have an intex above ground metal framed pool, the filter pump is model #637 Krystal Clear. I made the mistake fo running it 24/7 for several weeks and now it is leaking, some internal seal must be broken...the motor still is running and it works, but I am losing water...if you flip the pump over there is a metal plate on the bottom of the motor casing, and it seems to be leaking from the seal for this metal plate where it meets the plastic motor casing. Any suggestions? Hate to buy another one when we really prob only have 1-2 weeks left to use it this summer here in NY! Thanks! Maggie

You will have to set winterize plugs in the pool to do this.
Remove the pump and motor from the plumbing. Then with the power off pull the wireing or simpley unplug the pump. Now all you need to do is take the whole thing to your local pool store and they can replace the seal and gaskets for you. Generally they will do this for the price of the parts or maybe a small fee. All pumps are different so this is the best way to get this done.

    Thanks! Got it fixed...hose fitting actually was loose and leaking water into the pump and water appeared to be leaking out of the pump, but once I tightened the fittings all is good...a lot easier and cheaper than expected!

Which filters made by who is right for this model Krystal Clear 637

any b cartridge will do.
In fact off brands of the same filter hold up longer than intex brand.
This is my 3rd season with the same cartridge. Just blast it with your garden hose on high presure and you should be good to go unless you get a tear in it
hold cartridge and spray outside from top to bottom all the way around.
now turn it over and do it again.
you should do this at least twice a week and you will be good to go

Looking for an intex filter pump

The best solution to this problem not to find a replacement intex pump/filter. I suggest getting a system with a 50 square foot cartridge filter and a 3/4 hp pump such as hayward or pentair offers. You will be amazed at the difference a little quality can make.
