    dura glass pump question

    Hi, I am a new pool owner and I have dura glass pump. I do not know when it was installed. What is the difference between pre and post 1998 dura glass I pump? Thanks, Kris

    Looks like the seal is about the only real difference.

    Welcome to the forum.

    The seal kits are different and you can see below that there is a copper insert in the seal plate (see 7b) for the pre-1998 pump.

    Thanks. So I guess I have to disassemble my pump to know for sure?

    I am not sure if there is an external clue or not but it is pretty easy to take apart the wet end.

    Are you shopping for a seal kit?

    Here are some instructions for a motor change which has the part about removing the impeller:

    But you should be able to see behind the impeller after you remove the diffuser.

    Thanks for the link! I do not see any copper. I guess it is post 1998. Great forum. Really appreciate all your help. Kris
