Hi, Scott. If it's been a while since the other o-ring was replaced, I would recommend getting the complete kit.

I have a saltwater pool with a UST1072 motor and need to replace the shaft seal. Would this be the seal I need? Pump Seal 201, Extra Heavy Duty PS3868 (Saltwater Pools) - PS-3868
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/11/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Charlie R.

Tina, The shaft seal is based on the pump make and model and not the information on the motor. If possible, take a look at the make and model listed on the pump housing. That information determines which shaft seal you need.

I just ordered a N973T motor to replace my C48J2N131B1 Super Pump. Will this seal work with the new motor?

A  Answered on 5/8/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

The dual speed motor that you are looking at would unfortunately not replace your motor. We do not carry a matching dual speed for that motor so you would have to go with a UST1072 or the variable speed motor model ECM16CU. And yes, this seal is correct for that pump.

I have a Hayward super II pump. My problem is I don't know if it is a 1600 series or the 2600 series. Are there some numbers on the pump housing that I can cross reference to, to know what pump I actually have? Or do the same parts fit both pumps? Mine is leaking water on the shaft input side. Thanks.

There are only two seal kits for the Hayward Super 2. The GOKIT2 for a standard chlorine pool and the GOKIT2SALT for a salt water pool.

I have a chlorine pool, not saltwater but I seem to replace my pump seal at least yearly, maybe slightly more often. I am wandering if a "heavy duty" pump seal would solve my problem or at least last longer than a "standard" pump seal....?? If yes, would this pump seal work on my chlorine pool pump? (...I have a Hayward super pump II.....) Thanks

A  Answered on 6/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Robert, Yes the heavy duty seal would be a great idea for the leaking problem you have and this 5250-235 seal will work on your Hayward Super II Pump.

I have a 2004 Sundance Optima and need a seal for the single speed jet pump. The pump is marked as a 6500-263. Internet searches indicated that the US Seal PS-2868 was the correct one for this pump. I bought it but when it arrived the seat fit nicely into the pump housing but the seal is for a 3/4 inch shaft. The motor I have has a 1/2 shaft. Is there a seal with a 1 and 11/32 inch seat and a seal that fits a 1/2 inch shaft? I have been unable to locate this locally or on line. Thanks!
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/29/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Roger. It sounds like the seal you received is the correct size seal. The pump seal is not supposed to fit tight around the motor shaft, when the two parts of the seal come together that's how it seals stopping water from leaking out of the pump through the seal plate.

Hi. We can not tell what pump seal is required based on the motor only the pump model. If you can get us the pump model we can confirm if this seal will fit.

Purchased the Heavy Duty Seal for Salt Water and noticed it is smaller in size than the original seal. I can get it on the impeller shaft but it takes a lot of finesse while the original seal slips right on with plenty of room for the spring to flex. There doesn't seem to be any ability for the new seal to flex (too tight). Is this correct as I've double checked your site and the 3868 seal appears to be the correct seal for a Super Pump II (2 HP).

A  Answered on 12/20/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Make sure that you removed the metal piece from the old shaft seal from the impeller. If that is still on there it will make it difficult to install the new shaft seal.

Hi, Ed. Silicone is not required for the installation of the pump seal, however, you can apply a little lubricant to the seal plate prior to pressing the seal in place.

I see I still have the correct seal kit in my cart and somehow I had the wrong one also in the cart and must not have noticed the difference! I sent a note a few minutes ago as I had just noticed that the kit I now have is the wrong one...but I'm hoping the seal itself is the right one and I'll just use it... Is there any way I could return for the correct one without the 20% restocking change? (I know it takes time to put returns away, rather time consuming, thanks)
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi MarkG, If the kit has not been opened or used you can return it, we can also waive the restocking fee but you will be responsible for the return shipping.

Is the salt seal for the Hayward Super Pump and the Super Pump II the same? I just ordered a seal kit and it is for the Super Pump (square-ish shape) and I have the Super Pump II. Hoping I can use the one I now have and just not use the other parts in the kit. Returning would be time consuming for getting the pump running again. Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark G, The Hayward Super Pump and Super II Pump uses the same pump shaft seal and diffuser gasket.

Why should I purchase the heavy duty seal?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/17/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The heavy duty shaft seal features carbon graphite, stainless steel, and Viton rubber. The properties of this seal contribute to the resistance of chemical corrosion. This is the best choice for salt chlorine generators or ozonators.

Old system died

Written on 6/22/2018 by Guest

The hardest part of this install was working with how lazy the installer years ago was. There were no couplings so we had to cut the system free. We simply just took everything off the old system and put it right back on the new system.

Were these instructions helpful?
