I dug into my pool's equipment room a bit more and would like to get some opinions on trying to fix what I have or start new. The pump motor is a 1 HP dayton. The previous owner said he ran it a month ago. I haven't tried turning it on yet. There isn't a timer, just a light switch and the circuit breaker. From what i could determine the filter is a StaRite High Rate Sand Filter HRP24. Their is quite a bit of corrosion on metal parts I assume from acid and bleach storage in the equipment room.
