Hi - I have a Superpump 1.5 HP and it's about 9 years old. The past two seasons, I have had to have the impeller manually started during startup. After I paid someone twice to do it, I finally learned how to do it myself!
Anyway, this year, during startup, I flipped the on switch and the pump didn't start. Power was still sent to my SWCG but the pump made no noise. Well, it may be making a low hum, but it's much quieter than in years past with the impeller situation.
Question: Is the pump dead? How can I tell for sure without paying a pool company tons of money to come over?
