How to Fix a Pool Pump Leak for Only $10

Have you noticed water leaking from your pool pump?

Don’t worry. This is one of the most common problems you can encounter as a swimming pool owner.

The good news is you can usually fix it on your own, and it might only cost you a few bucks. Often times, all you need to do is replace a worn part.

To start, check your o-rings for wear.

In case you’re not familiar, o-rings are the small rubber pieces that seal your pump. These small yet important pool pump parts keep water from entering where it should not be.

If your o-rings are worn, you are more likely to experience a pump leak, and this could cause your whole system to malfunction.

Luckily, you can buy new o-rings for just $10 or less. Once you have your new o-rings, simply replace the old parts with the new ones.

After that, your pump should start working properly.
