My pool pump motor is LOUD. It's old (I assume from the 80's) and I've had it rebuilt once...three years ago (I've lived here for eight years).
It's a Challenger/Pac-Fab pool pump (1.5 hp).
I think its time for a replacement...though not yet sure I can afford it. I've talked with a trusted friend who works for a motor (HVAC, pools, ect) rebuild/repair company. He tells me the new motor/pumps on the market are very fancy, with timing technology including in the unit. So while the new stuff is quiet, there is no repairing it should it ever break down.
Anyone out there have any thoughts on this? I don't want to be a bad neighbor by polluting the 'hood with the sound of my motor.
