    Hayward Eco-Star Pump - Clicking Noise I just noticed

    I'm really bummed this afternoon. Has anyone with experience with hayward pumps ever noticed a noise like this? I recorded a quick video of the back of the pump. I don't know how long it's been doing this, but it doesn't sound right. Is my pump about to die? I'm about 6 months out of my warranty period too.....

    I'm not thinking this is something I can fix, but if any of you have any thoughts, I would love to hear them. I'm open to popping off any covers and taking a deeper look. I just didn't want to go to the trouble if there would be absolutely nothing behind them that I could service myself.


    Thanks for any suggestions! I hope I'm not about to be out another G for a new pump. That will be a pricy item if I have to budget a new one every 1.5 years. Kinda throws off the energy efficiency/cost savings equation a bit..

    Are you sure it's not just the plastic cover rattling? It doesn't sound bad to me. If you push on the back cover does it stop?

    I don't know how or why it would have moved, but that's a good idea. I will try to man handle the cover and see if I can manipulate it in any way.
