    Old Noisy Pump and Austin Pool Equipment Companies

    Hi All,

    I'm new to the forum, and pool care etc. I just moved into a place with a pool and have read through all the starter docs and done my first test with a TF100 kit. I've taken pool dimension measurements and need to calculate the pool volume. I'm not even certain what it's made of - I guess masonry seeing the surface feels similar to sandstone.

    The first thing I've hit is that our pump is very noisy and I'd like to get someone who knows what they're doing to take a look. We also have a jacuzzi which is empty and needs some love.

    Is there anyone people on the forum can recommend in the Austin/Round Rock area? (we're off the 620)

    I'd like to maintain it all myself, but knowing it's all in good shape first would be great.

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    Put up some pictures and maybe a video of the pump running. There is enough guy's on here that could give you idea whats wrong.

    Take pictures of the data sticker if possible on the pump. Also put all the results from your test kit up too.

    Turns out my wife got someone to have a look while I was at work. It's the bearings in the Polaris' pump, though I was wanting to replace it with a WaterTech Blue Diamond anyway.

    Once the rain has stopped I'll take measurements again.
