    Leaking booster pump

    My booster pump is spewing water from the front of the unit, farthest Gro the motor.

    Here is a video:

    Here is a picture I where it is leaking



    Can this be fixed with out buying a new unit? It's less than two years old.

    Is it coming from the seem or a crack in the plastic?

    It's coming from that inch long piece of plastic that points to 4 oclock between the two bolts, from the tip of that piece is what it looks like. Not from the seam that the bolts hold together.

    Can it get hit by something, like the mower? I'd say the front half has to changed.

    No, thats the weird thing. It in an enclosed fence area. Nothing to hit it.

    Any idea where to get a new front?

    It's very easy, remove the 6, 1/2" bolts&nuts, then pull apart, you may need to replace the o-ring also, then smear some RTV silicone around new volute, put new o-ring on, then put back together

    Worked great. Replaced the hose connectors too and everything is leak free. Thanks for the help!
