I have a Hayward TriStart 1.5 HP FRHP (SP3215Z1BER/T63CXDCZ-1653) pump that is making anoise and blowing the breakers. I disconnected it from the pump assy. and it still blows breaker after running 10 seconds with no load.
I'm looking for a recommendation on reputable company to order a replacement pump from. I called my pool store and they said we have one in stock. When my wife picked it up it was a generic AO Smith motor made in China. I opened the box and it looks "similar" to the Hayward pump but does not look like it would be an exact fit. Maybe I'm being crazy but I think I would prefer to have the original part to replace the old one.
Recommendations? Should I use the AO Smith generic and be done with it?
