I need some suggestions, came home last night and the pump had quit. I have a 28', 52" sidewall pool.
I want to get it going cheap as possible due to the state going to take our house next spring or summer, for a new highway, and I don't know if we can or even want to take our pool when we build again.
My wife says cover it and forget it, but I hate to shut it down in August, and I'm not sure how long we will be there next summer. Or the highway plans could fall apart.
I found a 3/4 hp pump by Aquatools for $169.99 but don't know if it is adequate, I keep reading many pools are overpowered. Right now it has a 1 1/2 hp Jacuzzi (that just buzzes). It is time for it to go. the mounts have rusted off the motor and when I took it apart the long bolts that hold the pump to the motor snapped off and I can't even just replace the motor.
Thanks for any advice..
