Recently, the motor started making a terrible high pitch sound. Probably bearings. I am thinking of replacing the motor + getting a seal kit, which should be relatively easy and probably cost the same as servicing the existing one.
The motor that's installed is an AO Smith 3/4 HP and the pool has a 20,000 gallons. My questions:
(1) Any recommendations as to where I should get the motor?
(2) Is the existing motor sized correctly?
(3) Any other thing I should know? I've never done anything like that but I am fairly handy.
