I recently noticed that my pool pump has been leaking water. First from the drain plug, and from the bottom as well. From research, I've heard this is mostly caused by a bad motor shaft seal. Upon investigating, I took out the drain plug and once putting it back in, it now leaks water worse than ever.
The plug won't tighten all the way, but it also does not have an o-ring. Could this be why it's loose AND leaking? Is there any way to find out what type of pump I have for replacement parts?
The tag is scratched off so I'm not sure where to start. Any idea what pump this is? The plug seems to match a Waterway pump, but not sure if different brands use various plugs. I'm going to go by the pool company that installed the pool to see if they have any insight. Pics are below.
