My pool's pump seems to be leaking from the suction side (air bubbles in pool return), I have noticed that when the pump turns off water will actually burst out of the top of the pump basket area.
When I remove the lid, the Oring is very sticky (like some type of adhesive was put on it).
-Is it normal for the oring to be sticky? If I replace the o ring should I also put the same adhesive on it, or should I completely clean the adhesive from the joint?
I would have replaced the o ring and figured this out by now but I have no idea what size o ring I need because I have no idea what pump it is. I have attached pictures of the pump and a technical sticker, If anyone can ID it for me I would greatly appreciate it (and then i can finally determine which o ring i need!)
Thanks in advance!!
