I have a 2hp Whisperflo that Sqeals during cold weather start-ups but during the pool season it is fine! I know its the bearings but do I really need to replace them? And why is so common for everyone I talk to say just replace the pump!! And if you want to replace the bearings prices from $80-175!!! For $20 worth of bearings!! Lets get real, gouging in the pool industry has reached an all time high!! With the proper tools(bearing puller) and not damaging the motor shaft this is a simple job! Nobody remembers rebuilding there alternator!
