    Motor Removal

    We have had our pool for one year and this is our first pool. It is a 15x26 Morada with a Waterway Pro Clean Filter and we love it. Today, however we started hearing a buzz from the pump motor which might be a bearing although I suppose it could be the impeller. In looking at the motor mounting they have pins holding the motor to the base. How do I remove those pins? Thanks for you help.

    Are you sure they're not Carriage bolts you could remove the nut from the bottom?

    If they are pins, you'll have to drill them out.

    Thanks for the pics

    You should be able to pry them out with a flat-head screwdriver. You might need 2, 1 on each side, and a fulcrum near the pin to maximize leverage, but they ought 'pop' out.
