    Whisperflo small leak - cause for concern?

    Having just reinstalled the pump with a new seal kit, I notice a small drip of water while the pump is running, but it doesn't appear to be coming from the junction between the motor and the strainer pot-pump body. Could this be the seal plate gasket becoming unseated? Should I be concerned?
    Thanks in advance

    Any leak should be fixed as soon as possible. Since we don't know for sure where the leak is, it's hard to judge how important this one is, or if it's causing damage. If you can describe the source of the leak more precisely, we might be able to give you better guidance. If the water is showing up directly underneath the pump, it has to be the shaft seal or the housing gasket, or could be leaking at the pump discharge & trickling down.
