Hi all. I have a Pentair 3/4 hp booster pump (Model LAO1N). Came home from work tonight and noticed that my cleaner wasn't moving around, so the first thing I checked was the booster pump. The motor was running and the shaft was turning, but I could not hear the impeller rotating and there was water leaking from that side of the pump.
This is my first pool and also my first experience with pool related equipment failure, so before I rush out and start ordering repair parts I want to get an idea of what I need for sure. I'm guessing that someone here can tell me what the problem is?
Do I repair, or should I just replace the whole pump? I see one on ebay for $220. But an impeller is only $32 if that's all I need. Any ideas/suggestions?
BTW, love this site.
