or is something replaceable to get it running?
I've been running it 24/7 because when I turn it off it takes a while to start up again. It turns on immediately but the "pump action" doesn't start for a few seconds. I had it on a timer but was scared it wouldn't turn on correctly. Well yesterday there was a power surge for a few seconds and then the power went out completely. When I went to turn the pump back on after the power came back on it laughed at me! It sounds like it's running but it will not turn on. I knocked it with a hammer to see if that would get it started but nothing. Do I need to get a whole new pump or can I check/change something that may not be working? Also, this is a 2HP pump. Should I just bite the bullet and get a 1HP 2 speed? If so, what are the recommendations?
