Just purchased a new house and it has a VS-3050 pump installed. There is some history of a lightening strike and I think the "head" (controls?) have been replaced about 14 months ago (12 month warranty).. When the house was inspected prior to our purchase the pump was moving at the different speeds, but after closing now the pump is not working at all. When pushing a button or using the pentair easy touch panel to activate the pump it simply clicks and then the alarm light comes on.
Had one service person out and he is recommending just going with a single speed pump. Says those are too complicated. Seems that I should invest in a new VS pump.
Don't know size of pool, but its not super big. It uses a EasyTouch control system. No in floor cleaning or anything.
Seems that the VS pump is fine (compared to the VF).
I am fairly handy when it comes to these things. Is there anything complicated about swapping out the pump or perhaps I just need to swap out the drive? Seems like the drive just plugs into the top of the motor and takes the RS485 and electrical connections?
