Tried to post a photograph, but was unable. So will try to explain. Have an older pump housing (I think that's the correct term) that is in three parts. One part is large round disc, about 12 ' in diameter and is attached to the motor. The middle part is also a a large round disc, same size, and contains the outlet to the filter. Both of these disc parts are joined by a large metal clamp. The third part is attached to the second disc and houses the strainer basket unit and suction inlet. There are hairline fractures on the disc which contains the outlet to the filter. There doesn't seem to be enough epoxy to totally stop the seepage. I could replace that disc, which means re-plumbing the pipe which goes to the filter. I could upgrade to a housing unit where the strainer basket housing and suction inlet, as well as the outlet to the filter is one piece, which means having to re-plumb the outlet to the filter and the suction inlet, then attached to the motor.
TFP would not allow me to attach any files, so I hope this helps. Am trying to decide which is most expedient: repair or replace. Your advice most welcome.
