Okay so I notice a much louder noise in my back yard and walk around the corner to hear that it is my pump. I can hear the bearing squeak at certain times and the motor itself has a noticeable increase in noise. The original pump was a hayward and was replaced with Century Centurion (A.O.SMITH). The pump appears to be about 3 years old and is a 1.5HP pump.
I'm looking to see what I need to do as I'm not sure I can continue to run it (without damage to other equipment) or stop to repair\replace it. I just replaced my liner last week so it's been a pretty expensive month for a pool that is hardly getting used at the moment.
Looking for recommendations on how to proceed to address my latest adventure.
