My pump died last night, so I called my pool company when I got to work this morning. He sent a service guy out while I was gone. When I got home, there was a note that said "Your pump was no good, so we replaced the motor.". I looked at the new motor, saw that it was an Emerson 1HP motor, and decided to go online to see how much this motor would cost to purchase. I also took down the model number of the pump assembly to look up as well.
It turns out I have a Sta-Rite Duraglas pump that, according to the model number, originally had a 1/2HP motor. Now I'm relatively new to the house, so I'm not sure if the motor that was replaced today was original or not, nor do I know how many horsies it had. My question is: Will the new 1HP motor cause issues when stuck where there was a 1/2HP motor previously? There is no indication the impeller was changed. Should I be bothered by that?
Thanks for your responses
