If you are repairing your pool pump or pool pump motor consider purchasing a GO-KIT. Each GO-KIT contains the replacement seals and gaskets you will need to repair your pump. A typical GO-KIT like the one pictured here for a Hayward pump, contains the motor shaft seal (2 parts), the pump housing gasket, the pump lid o-ring and the diffuser gasket. We have written How To Guides that describe in detail where each of these parts are installed and how to install them. This quide points you to each of the applicable installation quides. Note: These GO-KIT are generally unique to the make and model of the pump. Order the GO-KIT specified for your pump's make and model.
