Been running this pool for 5 years with 0 issues. Pump dies so I buy a pump (Waterway HI-FLO 1 hp 48 Frame) from a plumber who claims he has 50 + of the same units installed on all different types of pools some much larger than mine and they all work great. I insalled the pump spring last year and from day one its been hard to prime, cloudy water, poor vaccume sucking, any small particle that misses the basket cloggs the impeller and I have to tear it down (major pain when vaccuming). My old pump I had none of these issues. Even vaccuming in the spring the impeller did not clogg with even with leaves during vaccuming. Old pump I only ran at night and this one runs 24/7 and just barely keeps the pool clear. Changed the filter sand last summer to try and help but I noticed no difference.
Is it possible that this is the wrong pump for my pool? I have a 15 850 Gallon inground pool.
Thanks for any help.
