pump leaking water

I have a 2002 Optima Spa. I recently changed the water, and after 2 weeks noticed the water level had dropped about 6 inches. I discovered a slow drip coming off my hi/low speed pump #1 (see pic) and the section of shaft that is visible is wet. I am hoping this does not mean i need a new pump . . . are there parts that can be replaced that would fix this? The model # from the back of the pump is 6500-264 and indicates it’s a 2.5 H.P. continuous pump

  1. Derek, spa pump leaks can be a challenge to diagnose when they are coming from the wet end of the pump. On an age of spa like yours you are best to replace the pump/motor complete.
