(MOVED TO START OWN THREAD.)
My Polaris PB4 Booster pump, is little over 10 yrs old, and is working but making a cat in a blender sound. I'm guessing its the bearings. I've stopped using it. (using the old vacum method to keep the pool clean) Is it worth taking this old motor in for refurb, or should I just buy a new one? I'm also concerned that if I take the booster pump off for several days while I repair or replace it, if there will be water coming from the pipes formerly connected to the booster, while the pool filter is on?
If so, I better call a professional. This will be my first pool pump repair/replacement I'm sure I'll need SEVERAL days to get this project accomplished.
