    loud motor on Booster Pump

    Can anyone tell me why this pump is so loud? This video doesn't really do it justice because it is extremely loud! I can't let it run at night like I have in the past because it wakes me up! The Letro moves like it always has, it's just the noise that is unbearable!



    It's starting it's 8th season...so has it come to the end of it's life??

    TIA

    Sounds like pump is starting to go. Bearings are wearing out. Start shopping for a replacement or look into having it rebuilt at a local machine shop.
