Our booster pump is quickly becoming the bane of my pool existence. We noticed the pump leaking this morning while the Polaris (Quattro) cleaner was running. This pump is less than 6mo old as it is the one thing we lost during the February freeze and the entire pump was replaced.

We’ve tried tightening the bolt, is this a known weak spot? Anything else we could try?

There should not be a place where water can leak out at the leak spot.

Looks like a defective housing.

Probably need to file a warranty claim.

In case it helps anyone else in the future, it looks like we have a crack in the housing. It’s being submitted as a warranty claim, but the service tech mentioned he’s had multiple similar claims recently on newer pumps and suspects maybe a QC issue.
