    Hayward pump gasket kit for leaking pump / Impeller question

    I have a Hayward pump with this leaking and bubbling problem:


    The pump has this motor attached:


    The pool is from around 2004, I've owned the house for about a year.

    These are the # on the motor:
    c48k2n143b3
    sp-1607-z1-mbk

    As the picture shows it dribbles on the pad, and the basket is pretty bubbly sometimes. I replaced a drain plug that was leaking today, but the water is still coming out the bottom somewhere...

    Is this a super pump SP-1600x or something else?
    I would like to buy a seal kit and fix it up, just not 100% sure of what I have.

    Thanks tfp

    You want a Super Pro Go-Kit. Has all the gaskets and a seal set needed. You have a Hayward Super II pump.

    and the basket is pretty bubbly sometimes
    That from a suction side air leak. air is being pulled in somewhere between the skimmers and the pump's impeller. The basket O-ring is a common suspect.

    Impeller shot?

    I took the pump apart today and found a few interesting things...
    1. I did not find a diffuser gasket in there Not a trace of bits or pieces or anything
    2. My impeller looks to be worn, with a groove worn in where the wear ring sits.

    Here is the impeller:



    Should I replace it along with the seals and gaskets?

    Re: Hayward pump gasket kit for leaking pump / Impeller ques

    I hit the local PB and got the gasket and seals. They didn't have the impeller, so I just put it all back together and now everything is working just fine. No more dribbling on the ground, and the bubbly basket is very smooth, just a tiny bubble at the top of the lid.

    Hopefully the impeller will not return to haunt me...though is is really an easy job, so if I had to do it again, I think 30 minutes would be plenty of time.
