Have Shurflo 2088403144 water pump.Last Feb, furnace quit &had to abandon ship til repair guys could
restore heat.Forgot to drain pump, something froze somewhere inside the pump and now it leaks.Have torn it apart expecting to find bad gasket or broken plastic but no joy.Can't see any reason for it to be leaking quite frankly, but it surely does, right at the place where the pump head joins the valve assembly. It is a steady seeping leak. What could cause this?What do I need to fix? How do I know what repair kit to purchase to fix whatever is problem? Fulltime and getting cold so need to unhook city water and return to tank and pump asap. Please help and thank you for it. S.Thompson
My bet would be a hairline crack in the pump head. It probably only leaks when it's under pressure. I would try a liquid gasket material like RTV. If it still leaks, you probably have a cracked pump head and you should replace the pump.
