    Pump Leak at rear shaft w/pic

    In addition to dealing with high CH levels, this morning I noticed moisture under my Polaris booster pump. Below is a picture of the leaking area. I know it is sideways but it shows up a lot better. Is this a relatively easy tear down? What parts do I need for this?

    My locally owned pool store doesn't charge for labor, but it is built in to the part markup. Is this something I should just take out and bring up there?

    That is a leaking shaft seal. Fairly simple fix.

    If you are going to have the store do it, just give them the entire motor/pump.
