If water leaks or loss of system performance occurs, this may be an indicator of wear on the seals.
The wear of the seals has many causes, including contaminated liquids or excessive temperature / dry running.
If the low pressure seals show wear, then the high pressure seals are likely in a similar state.
It is good practice to replace both low and high pressure seals and to inspect the plungers when leaks are present.
