Hello Pumping Station! I can't keep my pump primed and am getting air in the pre-pump basket. I'm sure its the motor inlet o-rings that are junk as they have expanded over time and I'm trying to use ill fitting replacements. Intex HQ does are out of stock of these o-rings (part #11457, qty. 2), so I come to the TFP seeking knowledge of what size o-rings these are? I took the two old ones to our local farm hydraulic/power store and bought the closest ones they had. I maybe get 6 more seconds of pump flow before it subsides to a slow spittle. I've used the search feature and did not see a similar post but I hope the answer is out there. Intex HQ said they hope to have them in back in two weeks! Uhm, that's most of my short N. MN summer (almost)! He did try to be helpful and told me the ID of the o-ring is +- 2 inches and diameter of the ring is 2 mm - 3 mm. But that leads a lot of room in the o-ring world as I'm learning.
Thanks for your time!
tldr: looking for the specs on the o-rings I need for the motor inlet (Intex part #11457, qty. 2) so I can order/find them else where.
