I was wondering if I could get some advice from you guys (after doing some reading here, it seems like a lot of you know your stuff).
I moved into my house in Jan, and have absolutely ZERO history on the house or pool.
I'm guessing its between 15-20k gallons, has Fafco solar panels, and 3 returns/jets. The pool was running 24/7 for at least 3 months before I moved in (the switch (which was bad) was bypassed).
I got it up and running, and it has been good to me the past few months. Until the yesterday when I noticed the pump motor sounded as if it were seized. You can hear the motor try to start, does so for about 10-15 sec, and trips the breaker (110v).
I am new to maintaining a pool, and don't really know what my options are (besides replacing the whole pump).
What do you recommend? btw, I live in Florida, so the pool will be used almost all year long.
Thanks in advance,
This is my pump info:
