    Pump whisper flow

    My pump is not working and is making a loud humming sound. Is there a way to disassemble safely. I have a Lab and he is alway swimming year round and basket has hair in freq. Help if you know how to fix or trouble shoot

    Shut off, disconnect power. Check impeller blades for blockage.

    Humming can also mean a bad capacitor.
    Once you get if fixed, purchase some skimmer socks, they will catch the fur prior to it going to the pump.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Sometimes just turning the motor shaft by hand a few turns, with the power off, will solve that problem.
