We have had our 2 HP filter pump fail twice in the last week, 4 times in the last year. It is covered under a home warranty. The capacitor was replaced once and the pump was re-built or replaced with another re-built pump twice, the last time less than 1 week ago.
The DE filter was completely cleaned 3-4 weeks ago including an acid wash of the elements. Filter pressure was approximately 16-17 psi yesterday. Found pump not working again this morning. Re-set breakers...pump ran for 3 seconds and tripped again (same issue last week). We have an additional waterfall pump which works fine. Tried setting up for a backwash to change direction of flow but pump trips after a few seconds.
Can this be another issue or is it just a bad pump again?
We live in the Phoenix area which got hit with a massive dust storm yesterday afternoon. Pool water is murky
Pool is 30,000 gal (Pebble Sheen) with 2 HP AO Smith filter pump. Filter is Sta-Rite vertical grid DE filter.
