Product Description

Standard tune up kit for the Hayward Tristar/EcoStar Pump includes the shaft seal and all o-rings, gaskets, and lubricant.

  • All Hayward Tristar/TriStar VSP/EcoStar 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.
  • All Hayward SP3200 Series Pumps
  • Works on both standard efficiency and energy efficient Hayward Tristar/EcoStar pumps

Is there a rebuild kit which includes the heavy duty shaft seal ? Or - do I have to order the components separately? Wanting to rebuild my Hayward SP3210X15 with original factory motor. Shaft seal has JUST started to drip . . . .
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/21/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

We do not currently have a kit that includes the heavy-duty shaft seal. That would have to be purchased separately. The part number for the heavy-duty shaft seal is 5250-250.

Hi Donald, this seal kit does not come with a saltwater shaft seal. The saltwater shaft seal for this Hayward Eco-Star pool pump series is part number 5250-250.

is this the correct shaft seal for a salt water system or is the heavy duty shaft seal the correct part for a saltwater system
 Reply

            Bolt is not listed on the schematic. It starts at the back of the motor goes all the way thru and attaches that aluminum plate in the front. It’s how you disassemble the motor. I drew a yellow line

Have a Tristar SP3210X152 that is about a year old and was working great until recently it seems to not have as much suction or pressure going out?It did run without water for about 10min,would an air or internal water leak cause this?Would the seal kit fix the problem? Thanks Steve
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/28/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Steve. The pump running dry could be caused by a number of things including a suction leak which can be caused by bad o-rings within the pump. You can start by replacing the seals.

If you have the model Hayward Tristar or Ecostar then yes this kit is correct but you cannot use just the motor information to cross reference those seals.

We actually do not carry a seal kit for that model but you can replace the seals individually that you need. Most commonly the shaft seal and housing o ring are what is replaced. Please click here to view that parts diagram.

Worn bearing - LOUD

Written on 5/29/2022 by Guest

Long story short, the house we bought had a noisy bearing. I mean LOUD. Our neighbors complained. Overwinter, it seized. Upon recognizing the equipment failure, I ordered these parts intending to replace the bearing and seals, but instead procrastinated and lost these when the time came. Ordering more, will review when complete 👍🏻

Noisy bearing from current pool motor

Written on 1/10/2022 by Guest

I bought this tuneup kit to replace the old shaft seals and gaskets. After disassembling the old motor, all the seals and gaskets that needed replacing are fairly obvious, especially with the video from INYOPools.com. They fit perfectly.

I wanted to change the gaskets.

Written on 6/7/2021 by Guest

The Texas freeze got the better of my pool pump and it needed replacing. I wanted to change the gaskets and have them new along with the pump. They fit the pump perfectly and slipped right into place.

Pump was squealing after the Texas Freeze

Written on 3/11/2021 by Guest

While the pump motor needed new bearings, the pump itself was 8 years old and deserved a new tune up kit.

1.) Turn off the power at breaker
2.) Remove back cover of pump
3.) Test wires for voltage with multimeter and remove from screw terminals
4.) Disconnect plumbing unions from pump and move pump assembly to bench
5.) Remove pump cover with socket & ratchet
6.) Remove impeller cover with screwdriver
7.) Remove left-handed retention screw from impeller
8.) Use strap wrench to remove impeller (was stuck beyond hand-tight)
9.) Remove seal plate and pump seal
10.) Clean all surfaces and replace seal into plate
11.) Add outer spring seal, impeller, impeller bolt, and diffuser plate
12.) Remove old diffuser o-ring and replace with new one from kit
13.) Remove and replace old pump housing seal
14.) Reassemble remaining parts in reverse order.
15.) Place pump back into service by reconnecting plumbing, then electrical
16.) Prime pump, turn on power at breaker and test.

My waterfall pump stopped working.

Written on 5/20/2020 by Guest

After finding a perfect match for my waterfall pump I noticed a tune-up gasket kist was also available for it so I purchased it as well. It was for a Pentair pump and I was replacing a hayward pump.

There were a couple of extra gaskets that I did not need but the other four were perfect fits for the existing gaskets from my bad pump. After replacing everything and putting it back together everything now works like new.

Replacing Pump

Written on 5/18/2020 by Guest

Follow the instructions to replace your pump (each one is different, so follow the instructions for your model).

The seals are an easy replacement - it's a one for one exchange. HOWEVER, do not throw away your old pieces until the completion of the project. Also, take photos at each stage of replacement - some items are turned certain ways and having the photo reference makes for quick and efficient work.
