I have a Pentair whisperflow pump, not sure how old. I have had this house for 5 years, it was here when we got here. FWIW the Polaris booster pump for the cleaner gave up the ghost last year. I am guessing at least 10 years, maybe 15.
I noticed the other day that it was making an extremely loud noise. My filter pressure was also up to about 32 psi, which is pretty high, I normally clean the filter at 30. Not sure if that is relevant or not, but thought I would mention it.
Anyway, I changed the filter and the pump is still making a ton of noise. I am assuming a bearing but not entirely sure…could be impeller noise.
Looking for suggestions. Do I rebuild the pump now, wait until after the season or just replace it? All the fittings are glued PVC so I don’t want to mess with it now unless I have to, I would rather wait until after the year.
