So after 2 years of trouble free running, my Hayward superpump developed a slow leak and I figured it was the housing gasket or the ceramic seal. After some internet research and talking to Leslies, I figured it was the seal so I replaced it myself following an instructional video. Still leaking.
So I take the motor to Leslies and they replace the seal, I bring it home, still leaking.
I return to Leslies, show them the gaskets. They say they look ok but we replace the O ring impeller gasket and housing gasket. These are aftermarket gaskets and the housing gasket looks different from the OEM gasket. I try them anyway, still leaks.
Next I order a Hayward OEM housing gasket. Still leaks. I cannot find a crack in the housing and it only leaks when running. What is going on. Leslies has waved the white flag and are stumped as am I. Experts?
