I need to replace a pump for my FIL's pool and looking for help.
16x32 in-ground (approx 20k gallons)
Deep end main drain
No water features.
I think 1 1/2" or 2" inch piping but will have to re-check this next time I go over there.
The existing pump is a 3/4 hp Richardson's E-Z-Flo Pump (115vac).
The pump motor gets so hot to the touch (can't put hands on it) and eventually shuts down by itself. Then it restarts by itself when cooled. I suspect the motor will fail sooner than later. It's been doing this for about a month now.
To avoid electrical and plumbing changes, I would like to replace it with exact same pump but can't find it. I assume they are no longer in business as the pool is more than 25 YO and pump has not been replaced (lived a good life). My FIL has no owners manual for the existing pump so I took some pics of the set up and closeups of the motor/pump.
Can anyone suggest a replacement for this pump that would require the least amount of installation work?
