EchoTec water maker pressure pump service
 
Does anyone have any experience servicing the backend of a high pressure pump for a water maker? Ours is an EchoTec but I suspect most are similar. Specifically we have a small oil leak we havenít sourced. We purchased a seal kit but the schematic in our owners manual doesnít have a parts breakout to identify what the parts are to match what we were sent.
Also Iím not sure what the correct oil level should be. I donít recognize markings on the dipstick. Thereís a sight glass, too.

Send a pic, I assume it’s a common pump. Oil level is usually half way with the pump level of course.
If it looks like the pumps here, if support isn’t great from where you got your watermaker, I’d contact Rich, he is very good at service and helps people with other companies watermakers pretty frequently.

Echotec use a General Pump WM series. Here is the servicing instructions for your pump:
