The old one is dead. We took it apart as far as we could and found that the shaft won't turn. It's a seven-seasons-old AOS Century Flex 48 1.5 HP 2-speed, model 340206.
We've decided to get a Pentair Dynamo 1HP Dual Speed 11.0/2.9A 115V - model 340204. The online vendor is PoolSupplyWorld.com.
Have any of you ever dealt with the seller? Would you share your experience please? They offer free shipping and no tax and have a 20% restocking fee. Their price for this pump is $244.
Thanks for your input!
