Shurflo pump leaking

First post here. I just bought a 2003 Sandpiper. Everything seemed good till I got to my camping destination. I have a water leak at the Shurflo pump. It is leaking between the plastic and metal housings. So question is can I buy this and fix it, or do I need a brand new pump.
SHURflo 94-236-08 Replacement Pump Head for 200 and 2088 Pump : : Automotive

ShurFlo 2088-403-144 is the model that I have.

Also the gasket is bad I believe on my water filtration system. Water is getting up into the thread area and seeping out. I think I just need a new gasket. So question is are there any other filtration systems that can be used that might be cheaper than the Waterpur system???

Welcome to the forum!

From what you describe, you should be able to fix by replacing the pump head only. You should also buy a new strainer for the suction side of the pump.

The Waterpur water filter canister is sealed with an 'O' my find a replacement if it's damaged at a plumbing supply store.

The water filter may be leaking due to dirt, sand or sediment on the o-ring. Try removing and cleaning all the mating surfaces and o-ring and reinstall. I have a sand issue at home and have similar filter. If sand gets on the o-ring it will leak every time!

So after changing the o ring several times I still had a leak. I ended up taking the whole filter housing mount off and it turns out the housing was cracked. So I replaced it and now there is no more leak. I also just bought a Shurflo Revolution pump and no more leaks. Thanks
