We had a storm last night and got a lot of rain. I noticed when I looked out that the pump wasn't running. Well it tripped the breaker. I shut off the pump; reset the breaker. Now when I turn the pump on it only makes a low hum. Our electricity did blip; not enough to reset clocks but enough I heard it and dogs freaked out. We have a Hayward super pump 1.5hp. Model SP2610x15 for an inground pool. 5 years old. We did replace the seal kit on it a few weeks ago. Thoughts on what has happened? My husband won't be home until late this evening from work so I thought I would try to go get some parts if the pool store has them so he can try to get it back going. He is an apprentice electrician so he has knowledge (more industrial though) and tools but not sure what tools he has to check like the capacitor? I don't have much electrical knowledge. Lol Any thoughts would be appreciated!
ADDED: Well I went to prime it to see if I could get it to start and water starting pouring out from under the motor. So it looks like the seal has broke again. The first time was when we started the pool up and it was just slow leaking. It did slow leak for a week because of my husbands work schedule. When he got into it only the housing was damaged from the leak. My husband replaced and it blew again but he realized he put the ceramic piece in backwards. After replacing with another kit it has worked for a week and one day. Any thoughts on why is it breaking again? We do have had good pressure with no air.
