Loud pool pump after replacing seal

Postby bryantp » Thu 18 May, 2017 15:34

Hello All,
I Replaced The Pump Seal On My Hayward Pool Pump. The Leaking Is Now Gone, But The Pump Sounds Extremely Loud And High Pitched. It Is Pumping Water Fine But I Am Concerned Something Went Wrong. Is This Normal And I Should Just Wait For The New Seals To Wear In?

The Model Of Pump Is A Hayward SP2615X20. Here is a video recording of the pump running after the seals were replaced.

Thank you for any assistance.

I wouldn't think that is normal as when you get a new pump you don't get any noise. You probably didn't reassemble it correctly and something is rubbing
I can't get the video to play only see the image

Not exactly sure what could have gone wrong. The pump assembly is somewhat simple. Any idea of what to look for when I open it up?

I haven't stripped one down but would assume that it is something to do with the impellor as that is the only moving part except for the motor shaft
Have you looked on Youtube as they have lots of videos of pump seal replacement

I've seen a couple of videos on it, and I believe I followed the instructions properly. I opened it up again and it sounds a little better. I wish the instructions details on the orientation of the seals so I could be 100% sure.
