My 2 1/2 HP pool pump is leaking.
I took apart the seal and cleaned everything, it appeared as though the electric motor housing and the water pump were not exactly in-line. Doesnt the seal kinda bring them in-line? Should I maybe loosen the pump to concrete mounting bolts while loosening the seal then tighten everything up? Do these get off after time?
The seal is just metal, there wasnt an O ring or anything, just the metal ring with the handle to tighten.
Why do these just start leaking?Pool pump pic.jpg
