How to Replace Pentair 630043 Blue Seal Ring

If you own a Pentair pool pump, chances are you’ve encountered a problem with the blue seal ring. This ring is an important part of the pool filter and is responsible for maintaining a tight seal between the filter and the pump.

Unfortunately, due to wear and tear, the seal ring can sometimes become worn and need to be replaced. Thankfully, replacing the blue seal ring is a fairly simple process that can be completed in just a few steps.

Step 1: Prepare for the Replacement

Before beginning the replacement process, you'll need to gather the necessary supplies. This will include a new Pentair 630043 blue seal ring, a pair of pliers, and a flathead screwdriver. Once you have all the necessary supplies, you'll need to turn off the power to the pool filter and relieve the pressure on the filter by closing the valve.

Step 2: Remove the Old Ring

Once the power is off and the pressure is relieved, you can begin the process of removing the old ring. Using the pliers, carefully remove the old ring from the filter. Be sure to take your time and be gentle so as not to damage the filter or the new seal ring.

Step 3: Install the New Ring

Once the old ring has been removed, you can begin the process of installing the new ring. Start by placing the new seal ring into the filter. Then, using the flathead screwdriver, secure the ring in place by tightening the screws that hold it in place.

Step 4: Test the Installation

Once the new seal ring has been installed, you'll need to test it to make sure it is working properly. To do this, turn the power back on to the pool filter and open the valve to allow water to flow through the filter. If the filter is working properly, you should see a tight seal between the filter and the pump.

Replacing the Pentair 630043 blue seal ring is a fairly simple process that can be completed in a few easy steps. By following these steps, you can make sure your filter is working properly and your pool is running efficiently.
