I have a variable speed pool pump and another pump for just the spa. The spa overflows into the pool. So, today I shut off the spa water with the red lever so I could clean out the filter. Well, I forgot to open the valve to the water back open. I then went back later to turn the spa on and it made a weird sound ( like it was dry and was grumbling). Then it just stopped. I shut the spa off at the controls and realized shortly after I forgot to open the water valve. Ooooops! So, I opened it back up and turned off the circuit breaker as a trouble shooting step. Nothing worked. Now, I turn on the spa and the pump does not come on. I am sure I broke it by turning it on with the bypass valve shut. How bad is this??? Did I blow the pump?
Thanks for your help!
