I'm a new member to the forum & looking for some guidance and advice please. We just moved into a new house with an IG tiled pool approx 35000 litres with a Waterco hydrostorm pump, chlorination and cartridge filter.
All has been eking really well over the last month, but in the last few days I have noticed that the pump hasn't been running when it should have been. When I checked the equipment I saw that there is power going to the pump and the timer is 'telling' the pump to run, however nothing happening. Interestingly when I touch the pump its very hot to touch, even though it isn't running...
Just as I called a mobile pool service to come for a site visit, the pump started working...! This was about 2 hours after its scheduled start time...same thing happened today as well, although this time it took about an hour and a half after the scheduled start time for it to start running...same thing, the pump wasn't running but was very hot to touch.
I have made sure that the hair and lint bowl was full, the fan on the pump spins freely and as far as I can tell there are no air leeks....does anyone have any possible suggestions? Is it something electrical that will need to be repaired? I'm getting the mobile pool people to come out later this week anyway so they can give me a 1:1 on how to use everything correctly, but would be good to have some possible ideas before they come out.
