I have a 3 hp northstar pump ( way to oversized for my pool) anyway today i went to manually turn it on and all i get is a "buzz/hum" from the motor. Sounds like it is seized up. 20 minutes at least since its stopped and i cannot hold my hand on it longer then 2-3 seconds.
also i have 8 returns on my pool, a 24" waterfall and 4 fountains ( the later are not running all the time) If this pump is indeed wasted, what do you suggest for a replacement and where to buy for quick sale and overnight shipping? would like to stay with hayward so my existing unions fit the new pump.
