    Help with Booster Pump Noise

    Hi-while we were on vacation (of course!) our filter malfunctioned. So, for a few days the booster pump ran its cycle dry or with a reduced flow. It now sounds like this. I'm curious what you all think the problem is. It doesn't sound like bearings to me, but its an odd noise. If the correct answer is to just replace the pump I will, but if there was an easy fix I'm all for it. Thanks in advance.

    Here is the video, not sure if it does it justice, but its very loud in person:

    Sounds like bad bearings to me.
