    Default reassemble red lion sprinkler pump

    Was having trouble with Red Lion 1.5 hp sprinkler pump not putting out enough water. I pump water out of the lake to water the lawn. Took it apart and found a twig in the impeller. Reassembled the pump and now I have water leaking out of the two little rectangular holes on the bottom of the motor casing where it bolts onto the pump flange. Took it apart and reassembled it again, same problem. Pumps OK but water is still leaking out of holes. Did I miss something during reassembly?
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    The seal is leaking. Either the rubber that holds the ceramic seal is bad or you touched the seal faces. Probably need a new seal.
