Hi, I'm a new pool owner. It's a SwimnPlay Oxford 24' round with Waterway 1 hp pump and round sand filter. Problem: when I turn it on, it runs great--for 45 secs to 1 min., then clicks and hums. It clicks again in a little bit and can be restarted, but does it gain.
The pool is 200 nfeet from house on 20 amp dedicated circeut. Last 100 feet is two extension cords. I understand cords aren't advisable. I checked with multimeter. If I did it correctly (doubtful) it read 118 volts at pump. Tried measuring amps pulled by pump. Seems to be 9 amps or 90 or 900. Is the power the issue, or air leak possibly?
I can see a lille air at top of pump pot. Thanks
