    Leaking Pump SP3010X15A

    So I have a neighbor who is a single mom with two kids. Her Hayward pump SP3010X15A is leaking. A causing a swamp between our house and hers. It looked as though the seal was leaking. She tells me that she cannot afford to have someone out to fix it. I volunteered to try and fix the leak. Went and bought a new seal and gasket. Installed it this morning and it still leaks. Has anybody ever replaced one of these seals. I followed the manual but just cannot get it to stop leaking. What did I miss????

    Did you inspect the seal plate to make sure it isn't cracked? That's common when the seal doesn't stop the leak.
    Did you replace and lube the housing o-ring?
    Also, remove, clean and lube the drain plug(s) (there may be more than one).

    Inspect the entire pump to acertain where the leak is coming from exactly.

    Make sure the ceramic and carbon faces are facing each other and are extremely clean and smooth.
