Our pump bit the dust. It turns on, makes a grinding noise, and then shuts off again. Does this over and over. For the time being I've just shut it off.
From reading pool school, it says we should only need a 3/4 HP pump, is this correct? The pump that we have now is 1 1/2 HP. We have a 500 lb sand filter if that makes a difference, and just a plain old pool - no spas, no fountains, etc. It's barely 10,000 gallons, concrete, inground. My other question is what should we look at spending for a decent pump? There is such a wide range out there. Thanks!
