pump leaking

    Pump gushing water, hours later works fine

    I woke up to my Hayward SP2303VSP MaxFlo VS gushing out water. Hard to tell where it was coming from it looked to be shooting out all around it about 2-3 feet high. I turned it off and turned it on 5 hours later and it works fine and has been for over 24 hours now. Any ideas????
