Fairly new pool owner:
Pump died a few days ago, had a pool guy come out, said motor is dead (I suspected this powers on as soon as it primes it fails again) Wants $550 to fix the old pump or $500 to install the pump I was looking at (Pentair 342001). I was considering doing it myself prior to this conversation, now I'm most certainly wanting do it myself. On a scale of replacing a light bulb (1) to installing a dishwasher (6), where does this fall? I'm also going to be converting it to a SWG and was thinking of doing that myself as well. Also considering that the Pentair 342001 may be overkill and just need a 2 speed pump.
