Below is a picture of my current equipment. I have ordered a Pentair Whisperflo WDE-3. Originally I planned to DIY the replacement, but this is going to be a busy week and it needs to get done ASAP, so I plan to have a local shop do it.
While they are here, are there any other issues I should have them address? Someone mentioned raising the filter height on my earlier post. Also, the pad is not level. The edge against the house has sunk an inch or so.
Edit - Looks like it is now going to be a DIY event. I am somewhat skilled but this will be a first. I've changed out a motor before and worked with PVC in my irrigation system. Looking at the pictures below, what would be the best procedure for cutting out the old pump? I'm not sure how the new one is going to line up, which will determine how much re-plumbing I will need to do. Does it make sense to simply cut in the middle and re-plumb as is with a coupler/union where I make the cuts?
