I have a 21,200 gal IG VL pool. Older pool, only built with a side skimmer and one floor drain in the deep end. The deep end drain went bad a few years back so I have it plugged.
In this instance, will a pump for an AG pool work ok as it only has to draw water up maybe 20" to prime and feed the pump, but when I vacuum it will be drawing water from the 8' deep end. Problem?
Pump that went down is a pentair whisperflow 3/4 hp 2 speed. Only 5 years old. Motor is the problem, if I go with a replacement motor instead of a new pump, what are the chances that I can simply remove the old motor and install the new without needing new seals, etc?
Thanks for prompt replies. I need to get something ordered today for delivery tomorrow.
