Part # LUBE-PP
Dimensions 1-3/4" X 7/8" Lube
U.S. Seal Water-based Lube is better!
This water-based lubricant is specially formulated to provide the lubrication and protection that rubber seals need. U.S. Sealube is superior to silicone and PTFE (Teflon) lubricants because its wetness evaporates after installation, allowing the seal to lock in place. Those other lubricants can penetrate the rubber and prevent it from gripping the motor shaft. Since lubricant is likely to get on the sealing faces during installation, it's important to use U.S. Sealube which won't compromise the rubber or cause carbon build-up between the two faces. Prolong the life of your seal and motor and use the lube that pool professionals use!
Is U.S. Seal Manufacturing Sealube to seal between the metal base of the spring loaded side of the seal and the volute base, or between the rubber of the impeller side? Or both sides?
Thanks, Paul R. Powers
You would apply the lube to the rubber parts of the shaft seal.

The product was as described but the picture was deceiving because it's only 1cc. However the item is barely seen on the picture that also contains a huge bottle of water based lube. Outside of that the product served it's purpose.
