Response to Sometimes the shaft seal can get compromised upon installation, the other seals may not be sitting correctly or even some of the plastic pump parts could have damage such as a hairline crack or even be warped. You can view our "How to replace the motor on your pool pump" guide here that may assist. Other than that you may want to inspect all parts and make sure the seals besides the shaft seal are lubricated as well.
