I think my Cheapness just whipped my Butt!
We haven't hit the rainy season yet in S. FL. So every couple weeks I've had to put some water in the pool. I just bought the house, so I'm not totally familiar with when the skimmer might not skim. So the last few days I had looked it over hoping for some rain.
Looked today after the pool had been running a few hours and something wasn't right.
Looked at the Pump basket and it was only getting about 1/2 a stream out of the suction.
So I quickly turned the drain on and it fully primed up.
I now have some bearing noise I didn't have before.
Trying to save a few bucks on water, and jsut shot myself in the foot!
So, should I just pull the pump and take it for a bearing rebuild?
I'm thinking if it seizes, things will be worse?
Sounds like some marbles rattling around.
