I amsearching AGAIN for a new pump that will work with my small 14’-42” Pro-Series easy-set aboveground pool. I purchased it fromWal-Mart with the small black pump (A/C cartridge) which attaches to the bottom of the skimmerbasket. That pump only worked for a fewweeks. I replaced it with a Bestway Flowclear2500 gph (takes the larger B size cartridges). This pump worked well at keeping the algae under control, but it died suddenlyafter 1-1/2 years of use. I live inFlorida where the pool is used most of the year and it is filled with wellwater and a dog swims in the pool. Isthis the normal life for a pool pump? Should I replace it with the same type of system? This motor may have been a little too strongfor this pool because I could not use the vacuum attachment in the skimmerhousing like I could with the smaller pump because the strong suction almostcollapsed the skimmer.
