Assuming that you could not fix your leak by tighening the bolt, your first step is to order gaskets for the pool pump. You should have these on hand before starting your pump repair. You can order the pool pump gaskets separately or order a gasket package, GO-KITS
, that includes the four gaskets and seals required for a general pump repair. This How To Page addresses replacement of the housing and diffuser gaskets. Replacement of the strainer gasket and shaft seal are covered in other How To Pages. Note: These gaskets are generally unique to the make and model of the pump, e.g. this set will only fit the Hayward Super II Pump. Order the set of gaskets specified for your pump's make and model.
