    Strainer Lid Help Please?

    Can anyone tell me where I can order the lid that goes on my strainer bucket at the pump...We have replace all the gaskets and the pump is still sucking air...I would like to find a place that has fast shipping...I used poolcenter.com to order my gaskets...they were pretty fast...
    my pump is a old Hayward # sp1807X10

    Thanks

    Check your front fitting and skimmer hose for leaks. Try a local pool company sometimes they have used ones at a bargain

    Thanks...We have checked all of that and don't see any leaks...but my hubby is going to get all new pipe fittings today and change them out...just to make sure...the pump will pick up then loose pressure...so there is something wrong somewhere...just hope we don't have to break up the concrete

    So, it's intermittent? Have you checked your skimmer weir (flapper)? If it sticks a little, your skimmer can intermittently suck air.

    Did you manage to get the leak stopped? All I can offer is that my Hayward Flow matrix (a little different from yours but has an o-ring seal) is a total PAIN to seal. My lid twists on so if I twist too tight it leaks, not enough torque it leaks...all I know is it needs to be swimming in lube before it seals properly.
