We've had a lot of rain here, and that often results in the circuit breaker to my booster pump tripping (it's on a GFCI). Last night the circuit for the main pump was also tripped. That has only happened once before, so I wasn't too worried about it. THEN I switched it back on, went back to the pool, and the pump still wasn't running. Inspection revealed that the grounding wire was broken. I tried reattaching it, but that didn't help.
I'm hoping the problem was caused by a little rainwater which will have dried out in today's lovely sunshine. I have to admit, tho, that my pump may be dead. I'd have to say that wouldn't be altogether TERRIBLE news, but it would be a nuisance.
The pool guy made to my house VERY promptly the last time I needed help/repair; this could be a good opportunity to get a timer installed if I need a new pump. My pool is small enough that I could probably get by with a 3/4 hp; I really like the two-speed feature of my current pump, tho. I will have to check out prices. . .
Does anyone have any thoughts on what might be the problem? I haven't checked the pump strainer pot or anything. Tonight I will tinker with it a bit more.
