I have a 1 HP Pentair Whisperflow pump. It is working fine, except for one thing.
I was cleaning out the basket and noticed when I powered it back up, I saw the motor move.
It was hot and I couldn't investigate further at the time.
So last night after it had cooled down, I grabbed the end of the motor and it moved quite a bit, I could rock it up/down and side/side.
When I say quite a bit, I mean it moved easily, and quite a bit because it seemed to me it should be tight.
I took a socket out there and tried the bolts on the motor flange and they were all tight. I loosened one and re-tightened it to make sure they were not just "bound".
I called Pentair today and they really were not much help.
Anybody seen this?
I have no water leaks, the pump works well and is not noisey.
The only issue I have is air in the basket that I am trying to track down. Don't now if it could entrain air there and not leak water, doesn't seem like it though.
