Question about Hayward 1 12 Hp Super Swimming Pool Pump Sp2610x15

1 Answer

I have a Hayward super pump. I just changed the housing gasket, but it is still leaking from somewhere at the bottom. I can't see where it is exactly leaking because there is no clearance between the pump and the housing/strainer and the ground. Do I need to use lubricants with the housing gasket or any other gaskets in the pump itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Shawn

You forgot to replace the most important part...The" shaft seal".It is behind the impeller. Be sure to remove all the pieces of the old seal off the impeller ,(they always come off in pieces) and put silicone on the rubber part that sets in the pump housing. Make sure you keep the white porcelain surface perfectly clean, and you will also need to replace the ribbon gasket again.

The pump is sucking air from somewhere. First, check pool water level and make sure it is up a few inches in the skimmer. Then, make sure the gasket on the square lid is in proper place and lubed. Next, check the drain plug on the bottom of pump housing in front of suction side of pump, and make sure there is a rubber gasket on it and tighten, if no gasket, remove and put 8-9 wraps of teflon tape on it and put back in and tighten. next, check the pipe going in to the pump and try and turn it or move it clockwise or counterclockwise, if it moves even a litttle bitfreely or has slop in it, it may be melted from pump running dry at one time or another. to repair you will need to cut the pipe on the suction side, 2 inches past the back of the fitting that screws into pump. unscrew loose fitting, wrap with 8-10 wraps of teflon tape and re insert and tighten. install a coupling on the remaining open ends. and last but not least, if all this above didnt do the trick, you will have to have your suction line pressure tested for a leak.

Leaks from the pump housing


PUMP HOUSING LEAKS.. 3 THINGS COME TO MIND.# 1 IS THE SHAFT SEAL #2 IS THE TANK GASKET IS BAD, OR THE DREADED TANK BODY IS CRACKED. NOT UNCOMMON FOR THESE PUMPS. TAKE PUMP APART (MOTOR OFF) LET SIT AND DRY A LITTLE AND YOU WILL NEED TO LOOK CLOSE AND THE CRACKS STICK OUT BETTER WHEN SLIGHTLY DRY. IF IT IS CRACKED, THERE IS NO FIXING IT WITH GLUE. IT MUST BE REPLACED. IF IT COMES TO THAT POINT , I WOULD RECOMMEND A STA RITE DURA GLASS . 1 HP. THE SUPER PUMP YOU HAVE IS NOT THAT EFFICIENT. THEREFORE I RECOMMEND THE SR 1 HP. IT WILL SAVE YOU ON POWER ALSO , HEY YOU .. REMEMBER TO PRIME THE PUMP AFTER ANY PUMP REPAIR !!!... JAY FLORIDA

I replaced the motor on my super 2 pump with a new shaft seal. Put it all back together including electrical and now it's leaking from the bottom. I retightened the screws to make sure they weren't loose...


Most likely leaking from either the shaft seal, or the valute seal (big seal plate o-ring). When you replaced the motor you should have also replaced the shaft seal. If not go back and do that whether it's leaking or not. If you get your head down and look at the bottom of the pump while it's running you should be able to see the water coming from the joint between the seal plate, and the seal plate housing, or just behind that from the bottom of the motor probably from the vent holes in the motor housing. If it's coming from the motor then the shaft seal is leaking, and the water is traveling along the shaft and out the bottom of the motor. This will eventually get into the motor and seize up the bearings. If it's coming from the valute seal, then you need to either replace or re-seat the seal. As a general rule you should always replace the shaft seal, and diffuser and seal plate o-rings when you replace the motor or split the seal. I'm not as familiar with the 2 speed hayward super 2, but the standard super 2's have a small ribbon seal, often called a rubber band. They are infamous for going bad especially after pulling the pump apart.

Usually caused by a small air leak somewhere on the pressure side of the system. A check valve on the line coming out of the pump going to the filter will solve problem.

Leak between seal plate and pump/strainer housing


The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.

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.
