Had a significant leak from my weep hole (not a medical condition) and figured I needed to replace the seals in the pump.  Watched the youTube video, got all my parts......can't get the impeller off.

Its not near as easy as the video shows.  I can't find any place in town that has the larger snap rings he uses in the video and my slightly smaller pair just won't cut it.  tried gently pulling with pliers but it won't budge.  Had to walk away from the project cause I was losing my temper with such a small issue. 

Any ideas?  I bought another impeller just in case I found the one worn so destroying it won't be an issue......


EDIT:
a little patience and some firm but steady pressure with some pliers I was able to pull it off.

If I remember right, you can sometimes thread a couple small sheet metal screws into the little holes just a little and you can grab those with pliers or vice grips.

And a good thing it wasn't a medical problem because that impeller problem would be small fries compared to fixing the other "weep hole" that you have. LOL!!!!!
