Leaking Water Pump

Dear friends,
I just completed the de-winterizing process on our 23' International Serenity (rear bed model). All systems seemed to be working until I noticed water around the shower base which lead to discovering a leaking water pump. Air/water was leaking from what might be a front end seal(??). The round front of the unit seems to engage the main body held in place by several screws…….some not visible; perhaps a seal is installed there?? The space available for any repair work is too small for a novice mechanic like me so I suspect it will be trip to an RV repair facility. Any experience repairing water pumps on the 23' Serenity or like models?? Worth attempting a home repair or just bring it to a shop. The cost for the repair is not really an issue. Thanks to all.

Mine was leaking in that area. 4 screws to pull the pump. I replaced 2 o-rings in the back end and 1 on the intake hose. Nothing special about the o-rings. You can match them at Lowe's for under a dollar for all. The back mounting screws may be blind mounted. You can reach around and feel their location.

Thanks for the response. Finding folk in similar circumstances especially those having made the "fix," is encouraging. Too bad Biloxi is so far away! I will have another look at my pump in the morning. The compartment in which it is installed is very small and packed with hoses and cabling that getting at the screws to get the pump out seems daunting. I certainly will try. Repairing the pump vs having it repaired for me will be an accomplishment. Wish me luck. Oh, I'm retired an d have no excuses with regard to available time.

Sometimes the hassle of rebuilding the pump with new seals isn't worth the effort. Mine is a simple pump, so I have made it a policy to always have a spare, and it is kept, wrapped in a plastic bag, beside the working pump. On sale, the pumps can be had for about $100 on Amazon.
