    Pentair Superflo leaking?

    Hi, this is my first post here so please bear with me.

    My wife and I just bought a house with a pool that is an absolute swamp. The poor thing sat for about 2 years with no attention. I plan to SLAM it as soon as we finish moving in, but my first problem is that the pump leaks. The pump is a Pentair SuperFlo and it seems to have a leak on the underside about in the middle of the pump. I'm thinking that I need to replace the o-ring in the housing but I thought that I'd check with you guys first to see what you think.

    Thanks for any help!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Sounds more like the shaft seal is leaking. You can get a "go-kit" that includes the shaft seal and all the other seals in the pump if you want to start fresh.
