HowTo: Repair a Hayward Super II Pump by James Reed | Jun 9, 2013 | Uncategorized | 23 comments Taking a part a Hayward Super II Pump, and replacing the shaft seal. 23 Comments StymieJ on May 5, 2011 at 12:00 am I finished replacing all gaskets and seals and rings. Thanks to this short video it was absolutely a piece of cake. Thanks. MrRipcord69 on May 25, 2011 at 2:21 am I followed the instructions, but the instructions left out replacing the rubber gasket on the face of the pump and the plastic face plate. I had to figure that out especially when there was leakage. Now I’m trying to figure out how to stop the leakage. pd4104gmbus on June 25, 2011 at 8:33 pm Thanks for posting this! It really helped with my 1st rebuild. No leaks and saved some money! ddsawyer12 on August 8, 2011 at 9:11 pm thank you so much this is great! it really helped. Jay Finke on August 19, 2011 at 6:54 pm Are we supposed to touch the seal FACES with our fingers ? Jay Finke on August 19, 2011 at 6:55 pm @MrRipcord69 @MrRipcord69 THESE PUMPS ARE KNOWN TO CRACK AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE TANK, THERE IS NO WAY TO REPAIR A CRACKED TANK ! I RECOMMEND TO ALL OF MY CUSTOMERS TO USE RTV SILICONE, JUST A SMALL BEAD WHERE THE GASKET HITS THE SEAL PLATE, WIPE THE AREA CLEAN LEAVE THE GASKET IN THE TANK AND APPLY THE SILICONE TO THE SEAL PLATE. LET IT CURE FOR ABOUT A HOUR, THEN PRIME THE PUMP, AND HOPE FOR THE BEST .. JAY ..

Thanks trx430ex on February 8, 2012 at 1:56 am Thanks for the tips worked great twikken on February 25, 2012 at 11:38 pm Thank you so much! I just wish I had seem the video early enough to buy my parts from you. asparaguspee on March 4, 2012 at 4:04 am Unfortunately, my Super II is original equipment from 21 years ago and the leak had gone unnoticed for some time – it’s a much different situation when everything is old, crusty, and rusted, and the pump is in the middle of a muddy pad surrounded by complex plumbing and there’s a sweep pump about 8″ behind this one. Nothing wrong with the video and the instructions are great, this is just a little reality-check that you’re looking at brand new equipment on a work-height table and I was jealous. tkrotchko on May 10, 2012 at 2:08 am I love that this guy uses the correct terminology for each of the parts. Everybody else says “remove this thing, then pull this other thing off”. He’s really good at explaining, and the lighting and photography are first rate. tkrotchko on May 11, 2012 at 1:08 am A quick note; if you have an older super II pump, the impeller will likely have to be replaced because the entire thing is made of plastic. You’ll note in this video that the sleeve where it screws onto the shaft is brass, old pumps will be plastic. And if that snaps off, not only is the impeller ruined, but the diffuser and diffuser ring will likely be ruined as well. Those three parts will run you about $50. Take it apart before your order. Bernadette Beckwith on May 17, 2012 at 8:13 pm I don’t know if my pump needs fixing??? It is surging or convulsing when it’s on and seems to be sucking air. There are no leaks and the ring on the cover seems fine. I won’t know what it needs? Will someone help if they can? telosfd on January 13, 2013 at 6:18 pm Hayward is one of the best also in Europe. popomomox on January 15, 2013 at 10:27 pm The Best!!!! TotoAndSlowlyRunning on February 18, 2013 at 11:18 pm THANK YOU!!! Sterling Cross on April 23, 2013 at 5:50 am Thanks for your help… Omar R on April 27, 2013 at 2:39 am I don’t know if my pump needs fixing??? It is surging or convulsing when it’s on and seems to be sucking air. There are no leaks and the ring on the cover seems fine. I won’t know what it needs? the canister of the pump sta-rite p4e6f-152l is half full of water is not complete full.. and I noticed that motor is getting warm… can any have an idea? thanks bozisboz on May 10, 2013 at 11:47 pm Great Video, answered a few of small questions I had. Thanks. BreezeTDK on May 11, 2013 at 6:01 pm At 5:03 you will notice a metal silver colored sleeve around the brass diffuser shaft. That is actually part of the spring loaded seal and will need to be removed as well if replacing the seal. I would also suggest watching several of these videos from different people, because not one I have watched is complete and/or perfect. This guys is pretty good, but finger tight bolts? Not on my pump. Dan Eddy on May 24, 2013 at 5:11 pm Hand tight on the 4 bolts attaching the pump plate to motor??? The rest of the video is good, but that is NOT correct. Tighten them up!!
