When I discovered the pump was leaking, it had developed a salt stalactite streaming from the insert nut area. I removed the pump from the system, cleaned it, and reinstalled it. Upon starting the pump, I watched the entire area around the pump, and pump, to see if anything was out of place. Within short order the insert nut area began slowly developing a drop and then a drip. You couldnít even see anything in the epoxy plug area like a split or crack to support a leak, but itís there. Not sure why this design was ever implemented when the motor block has a nut socket fabricated into it supporting a traditional bolt/nut solution without the epoxy nut insert design.
