We'd be glad to assist you. Is it leaking between the motor and plate or between the pump housing and seal plate? Did you order the heavy-duty seal for salt water pools?

motor and plate.

I bought the gokit3salt

It is possible that one of the shaft seal pieces is not sitting flush against the seal plate or impeller. There could be s small crack in the seal plate where the shaft seal sits. 

The first step would be to take the pump apart and inspect the components. If everything looks fine, reinstall the shaft seal and reassemble the pump. If it continues to leak, contact our customer service.

Sorry to hear that. We'll ship you another heavy-duty shaft seal at no charge. If it continues to leak, it has to be the seal plate or an incorrect installation of the shaft seal.

That seal plate does look warped. My guess is that it would impact the seal between the seal plate and housing.
