I have a pool pump leak from the sides. Usually happens when the pump starts out and after a few seconds once the pump is primed, the leak stops. However, what does happen is that after about 30 minutes or so the filter pressure goes up substantially and the water flows very slowly. I have uploaded a video to youtube here:

Are all these issues pointing to a pump gasket issue and that it needs to be replaced or could it be something else?
