My 1.5HP Superpump motor is starting to make a bit of a grinding noise so I would think the bearings are going. I saw another post where the motor is available on:
1. Does anyone know the energy difference between a regular versus energy efficient model? Wonder if it's worth the extra $70 for the energy efficient one.
2. Looking at the site directions, it doesn't seem too bad. I'm comfortable working with electric, but not that great assembling things, so just wonder if this as a DIY project? My pool company quotes me the regular model with install at $450 - but it only costs $208 for the part, so wondering if I can save some $.
