The pot on our pump has an obvious crack. It needs to be replaced and a replacement is easily found.
Today a guy came out to look at it. He put this blue pool and spa glue on the crack. When he did the pump started moving water and the pot stayed full with a little air in it.
However, there was a small crack/leak in the front housing of the whole pump setup that I didn't notice before, because no water was moving at all.
His answer to the problem is to get a whole new pump.
When I looked up the pump specs though, I see that I can buy a new housing and pot for a fraction of the cost of a new pump.
Is there any reason that I shouldn't be able just to by the new front housing and pot? Even though it is cheaper, they are still costly parts and I don't want to waste time or money if I just need to bite the bullet and buy a new pump! I attached pictures of the housing and leak.IMG999.jpgIMG998.jpg
