K...so i am trying to save myself some money but apparently i am going to be spending more than usual come spring because of my stupidity. Somehow turned on a timer back at the pool equipment and the pump has been kicking on and running with no water for the past week. I noticed a humming coming from the pool equipment. When i walked up a saw the pump lid and pump casing to be melted.I think the motor might be done and i might need a new pump. My pool is currently winterized... Can i wait till spring to fix? Is the motor possibly salvageable?
