Just wanted to post a FYI on this. I have a brand new TriStar 1 1/2hp 2 speed pump that developed a leak between the motor and the pump after 2 days. Figured for sure it was the pump seal. I contacted Hayward and told them the problem. They agreed that it was the pump seal. I asked if they could overnight me the seal since I had to keep the pump off to keep from rusting the bearings and there are no warranty Hayward centers in my area. I had the seal in the mail the very next day. So, last night when I got home, I disassembled the motor and sure enough the seal had torn in two between the spring. Hats off to Hayward for their prompt attention. I understand that they were obligated since it is under warranty, but I am happy that they shipped it quickly and the pump was only down for 24 hours. Just an FYI for any others that may experience this.
