I have this sand filter and pump:

I bought it last summer and it work really well. I shut it down after the season, but let the pool sit and get algaed up.
I started filtering it out after killing the algae, but triple digits got the kids complaining they wanted to swim, well the pump ran then quit.
I drained the pool early this week, scrubbed it out and started filling it up yesterday. Today, there was enough water to turn the pump and filter back on and it ran for about 1/2 hour then quit.
I have an intex 18' by 48" circular quick set pool, running it with krystal clear saltwater generator.
Did I burn the motor out?
