My pump has become louder in the past 2 weeks, seems to be running hotter, and has a whining sound to it. I'm sure my neighbors are not too happy.
I'm thinking my pump is bad and I am ready to get something new.
I'm new to the pool scene, but have read reviews of the Pentair 2VST and the Hayward Eco Star variable pump. Is it worth it to spend money on a good pump? Are these pumps decent? My entire pool is only 3 years old. I just bought the place last fall and we have been using the pool a ton this summer. 117 heat index yesterday and today.
I want the pump to be quieter, efficient and have some sort of timer option on it.
Any advice you can give would be much appreciated!
