Pump noise audible inside house this A.M.
On inspection, pump basket melted to 3/4 height; leaves and debris packed in bottom third of
basket. Water was hot to touch and green hours later.
Replaced basket; pump would not prime; Cartridge Filter 0 psi, and
most alarming [to me] the water in the pump is dirty brown.
I have shut the system down while I think. I didn't want to run the pump
for fear it would explode.
The system has worked well until this incident. I have noticd "random" air bubbles at times
in the pool, and actually [now that I am thinking about it] I think I have heard a muffled bubbling noise
when the system starts in the morning.
The very dirty brown water makes me think the pump is sucking dirt.
3 hp Emerson pump (don't know why it is so big)
Hayward 4-Cartridge Filter
25,000 gallon inground pool with elevated spa and Paramount in-floor cleaning system.
