First, I'm going to just apologize for my ignorance. I'm 100% COMPLETLY new to the entire pool thing. I purchased a HUD house in the winter that I've been remodelling. After several days of pool cleanup - I'm trying to get it going, but my pump is dead. After pool cleanup, repainting, and some plumbing I kicked the pool on. The motor sounds "stuck". Following what advice I could find online I've
. Replaced the thing on top of the motor that goes out sometimes (can't remember what it's called)
. Beat on the motor
. Made sure the shaft wasn't locked up - I can turn it with my hand.
I'm jumping to the conclusion that I need a new pump. I'm looking for something inexpensive, actually, downright cheap due to some stuff going on. Will this work? http://www.doheny.com/poolsupplies/Clea ... 7AodexM-XA
Here is the info I could think of to provide. Anything I missed, or I need to provide more info on let me know, and I'll get it.
. The old pump motor was Franklin Electric 1HP - https://www.dropbox.com/s/ijwsb5aras7u9 ... .59.55.jpg
