It's starting to look like spring in Montreal and my inground pool was totally redone just before winter. I remembered that my old, already fixed once, pump was getting loud. With good intentions, I took it apart to see what was going on and wasted a couple of hours trying to remove a badly rusted bolt near the back of the shaft and lost patience. It' probably the front bearing that is the problem, but everyting is so rusted that I think it might just call it quits.
Should just buy a new pump or just replace the non-wet part? (motor and all)
The pool runs 6 months a year and electricity isn't too expensive in QC so I'm not sure I need a variable speed pump. I'll also be trying a DIY passive liquid clorine and MA dispenser, so perhaps a single speed is better anyways? I also bought a motor for my new Polaris cleaner...
Suggestions appreaciated, thanks!
