      Replacement Priming Pot/lleaf filter for ES8500 pump

      I have a leaking priming pot for my ES 8500 pump and I need to replace it. I've searched on line and there's a several option but I'm afraid that some of the avialble options are different. What should I be looking for to make sure I get a match. Any recommendations? Mine is like 10 yrs old.

      Thanks for your help.

      I see a lot of mini cracks in the lid so I'm looking to replace the whole thing. Not looking to trouble shoot - just a replacement.

      I'd just be sure that the in/out ports are the same size or larger than the pumps.
      I have the same pump and use the 90 cu. in. 2" port one:

      Turns out the one I have is a 500 Cu in pot (3x2). Just ordered it yesterday (from Advantageman) but found out that its backorder of up to 8 wks. I can't wait that long. Does anyone know where I can get one now?

      Unless one of our vendors here has one and sees this, I think your best bet is to do a search and start calling some of the online suppliers. Underwater Warehouse has one listed for a better price than most but I have no way of knowing if it is in stock.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I had a little crack in mine, was told to use some pvc glue on it while its running so up pulls the glue in. That was last spring, haven't had an issue since, and its still running, going to run it through the winter this year.

      So the 1 from advantageman is 8 wks lead time. The one from Underwater warehouse is supposed to be 3 wks lead time (but no gaurantee since it's coming from overseas). Now I'm wondering if its the same manuf and just different distributor so what do i do? The 8 wk or 3 wk is just a guess?

      Looks like manufacturer is having difficulty delivering the priming pot, so ill have to replace all the gasket.

      I need help with the size of the cap/lid oring. It appears to 8" EPDB - can anyone confirm? Also - I cant figure out the thickness (i measured 5.5mm??)

      Thanks
