Hayward RS2000 Pump Rebuild-Still Leaking / 2hp Saltwater Hot Tub

I replaced the water slinger, motor housing plate, motor seal plate, shaft seal (did not touch the seals), impeller, wear ring, diffuser and diffuser gasket. The ribbon gasket was perfect, yet my pump still leaks between the Pump and motor seal.

Is it possible that my pump housing is warped? If so, can someone suggest a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

You replaced the shaft seal but you did not touch the seals ??

Your leak may very well be the pump/motor shaft seal. Usually if the housing is leaking you'll see water coming out at the housing seal point.

What I intended to say was that I didn't touch the ceramic facing on the seals. But yes, I did replace the motor shaft seal..

Ok, I gave up and purchased a new complete pump and motor. I'll replace the unit and take the pump facing to a machine shop and see if the face is warped.

I'll let you know the outcome.
