    poool pump

    OK, I attached pictures of my pool pump at the following link: ... 352170724/

    here's my problem, when i turn on the pump, it sends a break to the circuit box. So it won't turn on. I removed the pump from the hosing and checked it and check the o-ring and placed it back but it won't turn on, could the pump be fryed?

    If so, where can i just buy the pump and not the entire skimmer basket and stuff. I have a 15,000 gallon pool, this is a 1.5HP pump. please help

    I'd suggest you take the pump to a local motor shop and have them check it out.

    You can buy a new pump at a local pool store if that's the path you want to take.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Just a quick point on terminology :

    When you say 'pump' I think you mean motor

    When you say 'skimmer basket and stuff', I think you're referring to the pump housing.

    You can buy just the replacement motor for your pump and have it installed, or do it yourself, if you're handy with electrical connections (there are some posts here that talk you through it). The shaft seal assembly will need to be replaced if you change out the motor!!!

    Sounds like the motor has some sort of electrical issue As such, it's be best to have an expert check the motor and figure out the best solution

    Re: poool pump

    Sorry on my terminology, I meant motor. I already took it off, it was easy. I need to know if I should have it repaired or replaced? What's the price of each?

    Reason I ask is, I've been looking for a motor online and i see the entire pump housing, I just need the motor.

    Check your local yellow pages for 'electric motor repair'. If you can find a motor shop close by, take your motor and have a chat with them.
