Hello - new pool owner as of a couple weeks ago and noticed the Polaris Pump has a small crack that’s spraying water. What are my best suggestions for how to fix this? I have a video that it won’t allow me to upload as well showing the spray. Appreciate the advice.

Welcome to TFP.

That looks like a crack in the pump volute. While you are in there you should replace the seals.


Confirm this is the correct model pump as you only posted snippets of what the pump looks like.
