    Leaking Pump

    I have a Pentair Sta-rite Dyna Pro pool pump (MPRA6E-205L) and it has started leaking a bit below the seal plate (5), so I ordered a replacement o ring for it (6) and the front of the diverter (10).Put it all back together and it is still leaking out of what appears to be the back side of the seal plate. What else can I replace that could be causing the leak? TIA

    It is usually the shaft seal that leaks. When you have a leak like that, it is best to get a go kit which replaces all the seals and gaskets.
