Hayward Pump Leak


Jun 5, 2020

Hey all. Does anyone know what the standard warranty term is on Hayward pumps and if Hayward covers shaft seals as part of their warranty?

I bought a brand new 1.5 HP Super Pump last year to replace a 10-12 year old 3/4 HP Hayward pump that had a leaking shaft seal. Instead of wasting money to repair an old pump I just bought a new unit and upgraded. Now, less than one year later and after only having my pool open for less than 1 full month, the shaft seal on my new pump is already leaking again. I can see a steady flow of water coming out from under the pump housing and the pad is soaked. I didn’t purchase an extended warranty through my pool supplier but I can’t find any information regarding coverage of this type of issue.
