I noticed recently I was losing water over the course of a week and I thought it was due to a leaky hose between the skimmer and pump, I replaced that hose because it looked worn and after I noticed it appear there was a steady leaking coming from what I believe is the impeller housing (if that's the correct terminology), basically the plastic section where the output is attached between the pump basket and the motor.
Today I tried to take the motor off of the stand (it is screwed into a stand alongside the sand filter) but unfortunately the screw housing appears to be stripped so I gave up for the moment and thought I would do a search to see if it was worth going to all this trouble or if I need to buy a new pump. I have been searching for a couple of days for a gasket or o-ring to replace but I cannot find any places that appear to carry parts for the pump I have
It is a PROLINE Model SD-10-1N11VB, but I cannot find stores that carry parts for it.
Is this pump just so old that no one carries parts for it? I'm trying to decide if I should keep searching for whatever gasket or seal may need replacing between the pump basket and the impeller housing or if I should just drop the money and buy a new pump.
Your help is appreciated!
