New to the forum, first post, had my pool for 13 years, sad it took so long to find this place .
Bottom line - motor is failing on my Hayward Northstar, pretty loud, sounds like bearing - have not ripped it open yet. Replaced motor twice now in 13 years without issue. Thinking about going variable, looking at the EcoTech EZ, but cannot verify if compatible with the Northstar pump. I looked around here and found only one post that ended with the OP who bought the ecotech going to new Hayward VS instead. There could be others I missed?
Can anyone weigh in with thoughts on this motor / pump combo? I'm open to a whole new package due to age, but the Northstar would still be solid with new seals and impeller rebuild I would imagine? Are there other factors I need to consider?
Thanks in advance.
