Post Subject: leaky water pump

Hello. I have a Shurflo 2095 series water pump for my domestic water and it's sprung a very slow leak. Drops of water are emerging from the join near the filter end of the pump. When we winterised the boat we didn't drain the tank, we just switched off the power and opened all the taps. Happily, it should be quite easy to remove the pump for inspection as Mr P Nicholls fitted the appropriate shut off valves either side. I'm hoping it's just a gasket which should be easy enough to replace. What are the other possibilities?

It depends upon exactly which joint is leaking. If it is coming from the pressure switch it could be a broken diaphragm. If from another joint I think it is more likely to be sealed with an O ring. It could be a split housing. I think overhaul kits may be available but I and others have not had that much success in resealing pumps we stripped so once you take the cost of the kit a new pump may be more attractive and a lot less hassle.
