I have an Intex 2500 gph pump that is giving me some problems as of late. When the pump starts it seems to be bound up for anywhere 10 seconds to almost a minute before it starts up. During this time it just hums loudly.
Has anyone here had the same problems? I am wondering about opening up the pump to see what might be wrapped around the shaft. I am guessing this is the problem.
Any information on cracking this thing open would be very helpful.
Oh, and the pump is only 1yr old.
