Product Description

Standard tune up kit for the Pentair / Purex Whisperflo pump includes the shaft seal and all o-rings, gaskets and lubricant.

We highly recommend replacing the shaft seal, o-rings and gaskets when replacing your motor.  If you use your old shaft seal, it will not mate up properly with the new motor and may leak.

This Tune Up Kit Works on These Pumps:

  • All Pentair, Pac-Fab & Purex Pumps 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.
  • All WF, WFE & WFDS Series Pumps

Tune Up Kit Includes:

  • Motor Shaft Seal
  • Impeller O-Ring
  • Seal Plate O-Ring
  • Diffuser O-Ring
  • Lubricant

I recently changed my pool motor and gaskets. I made sure to lubricate all the gaskets with vaseline. A few days later water is leaking from the pump. What did I do wrong? Help please!!

You never want to use vaseline on any rubber gaskets or o-rings. Vaseline is petroleum based and will deteriorate the rubber quickly. Whenever you change the motor on a pool pump it is recommended that you replace the gaskets and shaft seal as well. A >Go-kit contains the shaft seal, packet of non-petroleum based lubricant and gaskets you will need for your pump. If you already have the gaskets, you can purchase >Magic Lube.

I just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/16/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.

My pump is not priming even after cleaning impeller. Will purchasing this kit aid in fixing that problem?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/15/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The seal kit can help with loss of prime. I can't guarantee that it will solve your problem. The loss of prime could be from an air leak at the valves or plumbing in front of the pump.

Why doesn't this kit come with bearings?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Alex,  The GOKIT32 is specifically made for the "wet-end" of the pump not the motor.  The bearings are specific to the motor not just the pump model. We can try to match the bearing based on the model number or the size of the bearings.

After removing and replacing motor on my Pentair Whisper Flo, I installed the new motor utilizing the gasket set purchased from inyo.
The gaskets fit absolutely perfectly and worked like a charm!

Leaking pump

I was tired of paying pool companies big bucks to do things I could myself. The small cost of this kit plus watching the video saved me hundreds of dollars! Just follow the steps provided and you’ll do fine.

Pool pump was stuck and would not turn

Written on 5/6/2020 by Guest

I did some troubleshooting based on watching the excellent videos on inyopools.com and determined that the motor bearings were bad. I called Inyo and they were able to find the correct bearings for me very quickly.

The associate also suggested that since I will be removing the motor to do the repair I should get the tun up kit and do a tun up. I did get this tun up kit and replaced all the gaskets and seals. I didn't have the correct tools for installation of seals but managed to get it installed using PVC pipe. I saw the instruction of doing that on Youtube. It all worked well and the pump is running very well now.

Motor and go kit change

Power off

Ensure power off

Caveats: after removal of the motor rear cover to expose wiring: picture wire hook up w your phone.

The shaft seal is pressure fit into the housing mount plate. I agree with removal w motor attached. This allows removal of volute and impeller. Then motor can be removed.


Caveat: carefully tap the old shaft spring and seal out of the mounting plate. The new spring seal unit must now be press fit. Look in your socket set and select a socket that matches the diameter of this seal cup.

I placed Teflon lube around the outer cup of the seal/ spring unit. Then line up w the plastic motor plate receptacle. The socket you just measure matched is now placed over the spring/seal assy.

Keeping level and over the plate receptacle, tap in with a small hammer. This applies pressure evenly to press-fit flush into the plate. The Teflon lube should be used on all seals.

Keep seals in their respective grooves and avoid twisting. Reassemble in reverse order. Power up and check for leaks.

Leaks are due to:
Seal got out of groove
Seal got twisted
Didn’t use lube
Not tight enough
Over tightened and cracked plate or housing

That little motor support is essential to keep the motor level. A cracked plate, or worn seal may occur without it over time.

Time to rebuild pump and motor

Written on 2/11/2020 by Guest

Every so often, I undertake the task of rebuilding my pool pump and motor myself. Every few years, the front and/or rear bearings go out on the motor. When this happens, I take the motor apart, clean up the armature and stator, drive old bearings off and drive new bearings on the armature. after the motor is reassembled, I then take the pump apart and check the impeller, as well as all other parts in the pump. I ALWAYS reassemble the pump with a new ceramic seal, as well as all rubber parts - "O" rings and gaskets. In this fashion I am guaranteed a great repair with no need to repeat the task.

Pump motor was leaking where it is connected to the pump seal plate

Written on 5/24/2019 by Guest

After turning off all power to my pool equipment at the main, I started by draining all the water out of my pump volute. I next used a socket and ratchet to loosen the six (6) bolts from the seal plate to the volute.

Next, I removed the Seal plate, still attached to the motor, from the Volute. Next, I replaced the rubber gasket for the seal plate as well as the o-ring on the diffuser.

I was now ready to reassemble the pump. I used a little lube to hold the gasket in place as I moved it back into the volute. Once I had a good seat, I started inserting the bolts, being careful just to hand tighten all six. Then I went around and tightened the bolts carefully with a wrench, alternating from top-right to left middle to bottom right and so on to create an even tightening on the gasket.

When I was all done, I switched on the electrical, primed the pump and everything worked great.
