i came back from vacation the other day and noticed that my pool pump is no longer working. when i turn it on, it makes this low humming noise and nothing seems to move. this is very similar to the noise i used to hear when our garbage disposal was stuck. The garbage disposal could just be turned once and it started again. is that something i can do with the pool pump as well and make it run?
if i had to replace it, any suggestions for a good pool pump that won't break the bank?
Current pump is pretty old and is
