Any ideas? Thanks.
The exploded drawing of the pump is available at Considering that the two pump chambers are separated by the motor itself and share no connections any cross contamination cannot be within the pump itself. I wonder if what you are observing washing into the bowl isn't contamination of the raw water rather than waste material. If the raw water is passing through a filter (it should be) it may be due to a breakdown of the filter screen material.
