I have a question about replacement pump motors. I got about 8 or 9 years out of the original 1.5 hp motor for our Northstar pump. I finally had to replace it last April however I struggled with whose motor to buy.
I ended up buying a century and made the swap just fine (i also installed a new seal as well as impeller) . However, the new motor was never as quite as i expected it to be and i didnt feel as though it was creating the pressure i expected nor self priming as fast as i had been use to. Now the pump seems to be a little loader down another 5lbs and i think it may be going out.
I want to go ahead and replace it so i dont disturb the neighbors all night and was wondering who makes high quality motors these days? The only motors ive seen out there are Century and US Motors. How would you guys judge those two motors and is there a high quality option.
