    PowerFlow 1580x15FP LX Repair

    My Hayward pump is leaking at the shaft stem. I am guessing it is the seals. When I replace them on Hayward's site they say :
    Clean and lubricate the impeller hub shaft and pump housing seal recess with a dilute solution of non-granulated liquid-type soap. The use of petroleum or silicone lubricants can contribute to seal leakage.
    But other places on the web I they suggest to lube with silicone.
    Which is correct? And if soap is the answer -- how 'dilute' should it be?

    A few drops of dishwashing liquid will do. You don't have to dilute it but if you want to, half and half is good.
