    Noisy pump

    Hi
    I have a Poolrite SQ 600 pump that has all of a sudden making a louder noise than normal. I cleaned the whole system and it is working normally suction wise but it is still noisy. After reading some topics here it sounds like it could be the bearing.

    Is this a job I would be able to do myself? Don't really want to take to the Pool Shop as they could tell me anything.

    Thanks

    As long as you're comfortable taking stuff apart and putting it back together, yes, bearings are a DIY job. If you google "pump bearing replacement" you should be able to find plenty of You Tube videos. Even if you don't find one for your specific pump, anything similar should do it.

    Take Smykowski's advice and spend some time learning how to replace bearings. You'll save $$ in the long run. Not to mention the other things that can leak or go wrong with a pump. Its a shame to spend hundreds having a pump repaired for parts that cost less than $10.
