I am working on a pool; the pump is not working -- when I start this it does some noise and then nothing happens. So I stooped the pool. I am assuming the motor/pump needs replacement.
Can anybody please advise on
1. Should I replace only the motor or the whole thing (the pump and the motor)?
2. it’s an AO Smith 1.5 HP motor and Hayward Super II pump. Can I get the exact models (it's an old pool though!)? If not then which model do you suggest and also that will need some extra plumbing work, right?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
