    Hayward Superpump Leaking

    So I started my pump up about 2 weeks ago for the first time and it was making a loud whinning sounds. I found it was the front bearing in the housing that had gone bad. Opened the pump and replaced the bearing, but noticed a lot of corrosion around the area (possibly from water/salt).
    Sealed everything back up and turned it on and all sounded well. The corrosion had me curious so I watched the pump the next few days and noticed water puddling up around the base of the motor housing. Upon further inspection there was a slow drip.

    I ordered myself the complete seal replacement kit and replaced all 3 rubber seals and the ceramic seal on Wed 4/24 and put everything back together and all looked well.

    Went outside yesterday and noticed there is the small drip again.

    Any suggestions on why it's still leaking and how to stop it?

    If you're sure you put the seal kit in correctly, it could be a small crack in the seal plate.
