I need help. I am not a very mechanical kind-of-girl so I will need step-by-step instructions. Our pool is about 3 years old and all of the pumping equipment is in our garage. I accidently bumped the pump with the car and now the clamp will not stay on the top of the pot as one of the little ridges broke off of the top of the pot opening. I hope I am not confusing you. We have a WhisperFlo Pump model no. WF-24 with 1 horsepower. So I did some research on the internet and it looks like I can get the parts and I do not have the replace the whole pump, just the VOLUTE VFE PUMP & POT part no. 350015. I got this information from the owner's manual.
My question is can I do this myself? Or should I call a pool repair company? How expensive will it be and how long do you think it will take? Also my husband doesn't really know about this and if we can't run the pump to circulate the water it won't take him long to find out.
Thanks so much for your help,
